Birthday Card


It's my dads birthday on Sunday and he is bike mad!!  I decided to try out a photo transfer onto fabric using PaperArtsy Fresco Satin Glaze and to my surprise it came out great. I wasn't surprised about the technique as I've tried it before but I was surprised about the quality of the transfer, it looks fab IRL.

I then discovered that I had some washi tape with a map on it.  I didn't even realised I owned any!!!

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
