Coolio!

Hi everyone it's been 2 weeks again since I blogged but apart from lots of birthday cards that I have to make in August I seem to have lost the urge to join in with any challenges.
I'm not enjoying the squally showers but I do appreciate the drop in temperature!
We were in Portsmouth last weekend with Charlie for his dad's birthday and we had a lovely weekend. Thankfully the weather on Saturday was brilliant for the BBQ and it was a great success.
We had a very enjoyable evening, with friends, at the theatre on Thursday seeing Dirty Rotten Scoundrels with a nice meal before hand.
So here are a couple of the cards that I have been making:







This was for Keir and cut using my Silhouette. We had bought him a new state of the art BBQ for his birthday and so this was appropriate :)








This was for a male friend using the SU wetlands stamp set which is a go to for male cards.

Today is my friend Thelma's birthday and knowing that she likes iris's I made this card using the Romance create a card die and spellbinders iris die



Finally this card is for a friend whose birthday is tomorrow and I used craftwork cards flip card and one of their pads for decoration.


Charlie is coming up for the bank holiday weekend and we are having a BBQ on Sunday as it is my eldest son Dom's birthday and we are having a bit of a do!  I have made his card but will leave it for my next post, not that there is much chance of him looking at my blog!! :)

Hope to catch up with you all soon

All four are terrific, Val! The first is fun, the second is so pretty, masculine, and warm at the same time, the third is very elegant and lovely, and the last is pretty, uplifting, creative, and fun too!
