Before I start, I am thrilled you liked the idea of the "leather" notebook, I hope to see you have made one. There are lots of different ways to do it, I just chose the easiest! Also the fact I had the "ingredients" in the house. 😉
It's my birthday today, hubby is not computer literate, he can play games on the smart TV, although only backgammon and a card game, he can't see the point? Oh! well I suppose you can't teach an old dog new tricks, at least not all of them hahaha. He wanted me to buy it, as only shops with necessities are open and he wouldn't be able to use the computer without me knowing and showing him how! Aw! Bless him.
Anyhow, he asked what I would really like for my birthday and I had seen something on Liz's Blog that I thought would make life a little easier. So I bought it! A lightbox! Hopefully from now on I can add my cards or whatever already with good lighting without playing around with them to get them with a good light. I ordered it and kept it in it's box until today, so as I hadn't seen it, it's still a surprise! (I hadn't opened it when this was posted!)
One of my old work colleagues has her 80th birthday today too and as she is an avid gardener, I picked out an old image and made this card for her. I added the image to my digital die cutting machine (Cameo) then print and cut, editing the image to make 3 layers, I layered it onto the card and added 3D glaze to her glasses and the age.
