Birthday Boys!!

The men in my family all seem to be having their Birthdays at once again...they do this to me every year ;) and as the last altered wine box went down so well...I thought I'd do another one!

This one is covered in papers from the same HOTP PS Kit that I used last time (you get tons in each kits...with matching ribbons and embellishments...and they are still on at half-price!!!) All I have added here is a charm (these are currently 70% off) and 3 little brads, and a stamped message. You could easily print happy birthday on the paper before you adhere it if you don't have a suitable stamp :)
As its my other half's Birthday today I had to make him a card...and I've used the cardstock from the PS Kit as the base, added a felt bird (from the die-cut sheets here, also 20% off), two buttons and doodled a message and a border. The felt bird was originally red, but I have coloured it with fabric inks and added a dot of acrylic paint and a tiny orange bead to make it look like the blackbirds we are currently taming in the back yard :)
Thats it from me today...I hope to get out in the sunshine...for a little al fresco crafting today...whatever you are up to...enjoy!
