It was my son-in-law’s birthday yesterday – Happy Birthday Mr. M!
You might remember he is the farmer who likes supporting my crazy crafty ways.
You can see him and my daughter in this post.
I had meant to post this yesterday, but the day did not go to plan, never mind it now doubles up as a multi-functional post, two memes in one.
In true Scrap Happy Style I made Mr M a card out of old used teabags and some of the old wire fencing he brought for me to play with.
Each element, a symbol of members of his family. The heart with gold kisses represents my daughter – her name means ‘beloved’. My two Granddaughters’ names are represented by the fern leaf print and the ‘pearl’ and my Grandson’s by the red beads.
In the Chive vase are a couple of Robin’s Pincushions found on a wild rose in my garden
Intriguing, I love the colours and texture – they have a touch of magic about them
and the wonderfully shiny hips reminding me of the school nature table, when each year in primary school we seemed to do something about hips and haws.
