Flower Pocket #7


 Good morning followers and welcome to my blog.  Today is the first day of spring which I've really been looking forward to all winter.
Unfortunately, New Zealand is in Level 4 lockdown due to an outbreak of Covid 19.  So today I made bread as well as Sourdough bread and two loaves of wholemeal and rye and a very large bowel of Granola, plus all the office work that I normally do.

Sketch #214

Happy 2nd Birthday

 Welcome to my blog.  Today I'm posting this wee card for a special little boy who turned 2 on Saturday. 

His birthday was a Thomas The Tank Engine theme.  I was stoked about that as my boys loved Thomas and they had a massive train set that I was always adding bits and pieces to over the years and they still have this amazing collection now put away for grandchildren one day.  When I found out it was a Thomas party, I thought oh I'll buy a carriage and a lovely hard covered book.  Much to my disappointment Thomas in wood isn't being made anymore and now it's plastic, I was saddened about this, I was told that wooden Thomas ceased manufacture in 2017.  I haven't bought Thomas and friends for years as my sons are 22 and 20.

              

Today I'm entering this card in the following challenges.

Challenges:

Card Recipe:   
1. Base: White French Linen
2. Coloured Card: American Craft Card Lagoon and Kaisercraft Scarlet
3. Design Papers: Digital Source Unknown

4. Image: Thomas The Tank Engine
