Hi Everyone!

I am ill… I have caught some horrible flu virus and it headed straight into my chest, so apologies for the lack of posts lately, I have been in my bed.

I do have a birthday card to share, this is a quick and easy one, as I didn’t want to sit in my shed for long in the cold.


This is a standard 5 x 7 Card from a card and envelope pack that I picked up at Stampers Grove a while back, really handy to have on hand for days like today.

Supplies List:-

  • Kraft Card Base and matching Envelope
  • Mama Elephant Femme Frames Die Set
  • Stampin Up Banner Die
  • Tim Holtz Happy Birthday Stamp
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
  • Kaiser Craft Pickled Pear Patterned Paper Pack

  • Ranger Multi Matte Medium (for the sequins)
  • Zig 2 Way Glue Pen (for the heart)
