Two days ago I was given some ancient beautiful large wooden buttons that date back to the 50’s. They remind me of an owl with holes looking like big round eyes and marking which make them seem feathery. I thought this week’s Freshly made sketch would match them nicely. I started with a card with a blue background, and made another with very light green. I can’t decide which one I like more.

Made my very first spinner card for a 10 year old boy who loves football. I must say that rolling the little football is totally addictive . It is very tempting not to give it away…

It is black tie at Dynamic Duos challenge. As soon as I saw the colours I wanted to make a birthday card for my husband’s 50th. We are planning (well, I am planning) a holiday driving across Australia.

I do apologize for the quality of the photographs.
