I am sitting here slowly melting while writing this post. We might have had thunderstorms last night but the hot sticky conditions remain. I was hopeful that it might have freshened the air a bit to at least enable me to sleep but I was wrong. Still, I am not going to complain as we don't see enough nice weather in the UK. My apologies if I have not been round to visit all your blogs over the last couple of days. All I want to do in the evenings at the moment is to keep cool and sitting with a laptop on your knee is not exactly cooling lol. I have also been busy with a wedding order for three weeks time. I can't show you what I have been working on at the moment but will do as soon as the wedding is over.
It has been a very exciting couple of days with the birth of William and Kate's baby boy. What a precious little bundle and congratulations to them both. I was sat in front of the television this evening for my first glimpse of the little man. I just hope that they are given a bit of privacy now to get used to being parents and getting to know their little boy.
I have a male birthday card to share with you tonight.
I used a topper from Kanban together with papers from Craftwork Cards for this creation. I mounted everything onto kraft card to keep the monochromatic feel. For embellishments I used a couple of metal corners and some card candy. I also used some distress ink around the edges of the topper and the papers. This was a quick card to put together but just perfect for a male birthday.
