Well I didn't know that but I suppose I didn't go looking either, I found out last year there is a grandparents day ,only by chance and that they had actually changed the date from the previous year so it coinsided with something for age concern or something like that, I think it's sometime in october but if anyone knows the exact date could they let me know please. I'd also like to know if there is a special day for brothers too.
You may well be asking what I'm on about and what started this odd train of thought , well over at Daring cardmakers they have a theme of making a card for special girlfriend as it's girlfriend day on the 1st of august , I presume it's just special friend who is a girl , girlfriend or maybe it could be boy's girlfriends girlfriends too I'm not sure. It is also sister day on the 2nd of august so you can make a card for either. Well I have just finished making my catrd for my baby sis and will endevour to get it in the post for her so it arrives by the 2nd, if I'm lucky. I think I best put a note in it about sisters day though otherwise she will think I've totally lost it as her birthday is in January, and as she is a phychiatric nurse totally loosing it might be a bad thing.
The layout is from craftwork cards and I thought it lent itself well to the thought behind the card, I only have a few craftwork bits, candy and some chocolate related sentiments that were bought with my sis who is a chocoholic in mind.
I could also enter this into the stamp man challenge, I did have something else in mind so if I'm allowed I might be entering twice . Their challenge is to take 2 colours, mine here are yellow, varying shades and use to be my sisters fav childhood colour not sure if her taste has changed though and brown , my candy dots.
My cute little daisies I love making and over at Craftilicious they have a make your own flowers challenge, so I'm in. There DT have some fab examples too and all very different.
Alphabet challenges are N for nature so I guess flowers count as nature.
Cute card thursday have an intresting challenge called 'text', make your words a focal piont, I really wondered how I could do this and whilst makiong this card it dawned on me that I had actually done it.
Anyway hope you all have a great weekend and I have another card to upload later but for now I'm off to the post office.
