A Snappet.

 
Isn't it always the  way. You wait ages for a bus and then two come along together!!
I had to post this straight away as it follows on from the post below.  So I finished the book album at 2am but still needed two Birthday cards PDQ.  I was sitting at my craft desk staring at the blank wall trying desperately to get inspiration (only it wasn't a blank wall it has my oil paintings that 'The Doc' had hung up for me) when suddenly eureka  I had a light bulb moment! Why not take a photo of one of my pictures, scan it into the computer, resize it, twiddle around with it and make Dad's card. So I did and here it is PDQ!!

 
 
Backing paper and ribbon from my stash. Picture from stash on wall!
 
Card for Mum was a quick one too as I had all the elements cut out on my desk  already
and just had to decoupage it together.
 
Would like to enter this card into the following:
 
Pile it On: For the Birthday Boy.
Lexi's Creations: Special Birthday.
Creative Inspitations: Lets celebrate.
Simply Create: Anything goes.
Crafty Catz:  Male card.
Totally Gorjuss: Things with wings.
