Train Spotting..


 I'm such a bad blogger at the moment but I have been busy 'behind the scenes'..lOl....
I've done lots of sewing and have just completed another quilt this time for our youngest grandson (photos later) also I've been busy preparing for our July club meeting so I haven't been idle!

I was asked to make a train card for an 80th and this image from the Kevin Walsh Out and About paper pad fitted the request and I've also used my new corner die which is from Crafters Companion Diesire range.. 

Its a beautiful day today so do you think our summer is on its way??

Thanks for looking

Anne

I've been the same Anne, head deep in Christmas of all things, but apparently it starts on C&C this week.

This is a fab card for a male and sounds perfect for the recipient.

Really beautiful image Anne, and you've framed it perfectly. Summer seems to have come to the westcoast of Canada, that's for sure. It's about 25-30 degrees today ... just a bit too hot for June in my opinion. :) xx

You have been busy Anne - I am afraid I have just piddled about but I have been reading some good books!
Your card is really smashing and I would say just right for someone who is looking at their 80th year. Look at that roadster - I think it is what you call that car.

I cannot wait to see your sewing, I wish I could sew, I have a machine but end up with wonky donkey likes everywhere and then I loose heart and put it away again, I love this card so perfect for a man, hugs Pops x

dear Anne
you have made a realy beautiful and tough masculine card for this occasion.
the image is very nice and is perfect.
so you did a lot of sewing behind the scenes, and everyone is busy these days, but between our daily work, it is so nice to make our beloved cards don,t you think?
have a nice week and hugs from Anneke
