Here's the Secret Message / 3rd Birthday card I made for a special little girl.
The card has a fascinating system of opening out so that there are four different surfaces of the card exposed. I will soon be making this in a workshop for Vicky Stampers with lots more styles and variations but here I went over the top with lots of points of interest for a 3 year old. She really loved the worm and the gingerbread man.
Thanks to my lovely friend Neet of Hickydorums blog who sent the birthday girl this special card with a pocket full of tags and a page inside asking lots of fun questions about all these super gnomes. A great interactive card idea, and perfect for a 3 year old. Pop over to her blog to see all about making it.
Such a coincidence how Neet's fab card matched the theme of the birthday cake my DD made.
When we go shopping in DD's town, I always visit visit this lovely Quilt Garden shop (which Wipso, Twiglet and LLJ would LOVE) and, from across the road, my little grandee shouted.... "There's Joma!" (that's ME, my German Nannie name!!!) Do I really look like this? Well maybe it's because she always sees me making things.
However I can't understand why she saw this fellow outside a toy shop and said.... "There's Popops" (my DH!!!) We must look a right pair through the eyes of a child, tee, hee!
The beautiful, ancient, Rathaus on Market Day
This interesting guy is always there selling preserves, honey and pickles.
It was almost the end of the strawberry season
I wish I could grow agapanthus like this!
I also wish I was back there but it's a good job I can look forward to the visit of the Brighton Belles next week.
Have a great weekend and hope the weather is good wherever you are.
