Wallet Card

Wow! Today has been such a gorgeous day - warm and sunny with a nice breeze! And I have been feeling so much better after feeling off-colour for a few days - headache, a bit of a cold, a cough (and every time I coughed it felt like my head was going to explode!) and soooooooooooooooooooo grumpy! I sent my husband off to work yesterday with a flea in his ear... all because he hadn't rinsed his cereal bowl out after eating weetabix, and doesn't that just dry like cement?, and he hadn't rinsed the tuna can out! Very irritating, but I did feel awful later about the way I had a go at him!!

Anyway, I have been feeling so much better day, so I thought I'd show the card I made for my Dad's birthday.

A wallet card - I found the instructions for this fabulous card here -
It was so easy to make, and I think it looks really effective. I paper pricked around the edge, and did faux stitching with black gel pen, but the stitches didn't show up all that well. I made some fake credit cards, put a verse on the back of one, and then we were able to write our messages on the back of the others. And it was perfect for holding the money I gave him.

I am so sorry about the photo - the flash kept coming on inside the house, and it was too windy to take it outside, then the battery died in my camera, and it was time to take my Dad his card. Hey, ho!! So this is the best I could get, I'm sorry!

Anyway, hope you like this card - my Dad did! I'm off to get my son a drink of water and then attempt to make a card.

Hope to see you again soon!
