Happy Birthday Pat

Seems summer isn’t going to give up without a fight here. It’s gotten a bit to warm for my liking but when I think of what the weather has been doing around the US I realize I am truly blessed. My heart and prayers goes out to those who have lost homes, businesses, crops and loved ones as a result of the dreadful weather this year.

My card today is for our dear friend Pat.   Pat, his wife Lynne and Jim and I have been friends for over 25 years. We now live three hours apart and with Jim’s poor health we don’t see them as often as we’d like but distance can’t hurt a true friendship.

I spent more time taking pictures of this card then I did making it. No matter what I did I couldn’t capture it properly. The colors are much more vibrant IRL. In a way this card designed it’s self. When I pulled out my green scraps file the branch fell out onto another lighter green scrap. Wa La a card was born. A little glue, a bit of jewelry hemp, a sentiment and it was done. Just wish all masculine cards would be so easy to make.

Have an Amazing Day!

  1. Bernie this is beautiful. What a great way to send some love. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Great card Bernie - maybe if I shake a load of stash, throw it in the air and see what lands I could hit lucky? But never as lucky as this honey, it's just great! Hugs, Di xx

  3. Don't you love how cards 'happen' sometimes! The colors on this are very pretty!

  4. Hi Bernie, truly a lovely card again :) Sandra H

  5. Bernie, don't you love those moments when everything just suddenly falls into place? Especially with those masculine that we sometimes have trouble with. Yours is great and sure to be well received by your friend.

  6. Wow this is stunning and to hear how you did it is just lovely :) xx

  7. I love cards that just kind of "make themselves!" This one is beautiful.
