Happy Birthday Card


It’s been a while and it seems like I have been absent for ages.. but I have been super busy making wedding invitations.. and they turned out sooo pretty..

So this is me back to bloggy business as usual.    I am starting off my return with a birthday card,  I was asked to make this by one of my friends at work.. love how this one came together

flower 1

The card base is 6″ x 6″ and it is a kraft scalloped edge card that I bought at the Ross Papercraft Show a few months back..

flower 2

I used some black cardstock as a layer and some pretty floral patterned paper..

The flower was a packet of basic white flowers from Hobbycraft and I used a sepia coloured spray to give it a touch of colour..

I will be back with another blog post soon as I have been asked to make a couple of first communion cards and a wedding card for a couple of friends at work,

As always, thanks for popping round and…. its great to be back 😀

You make me happy when skies are grey

Hi Everyone,

I have had a super busy weekend, I think I blinked and missed it!

Friday night I was out for a colleagues leaving night from work,  and on Saturday my daughter flew out to Mallorca for the summer and today I met up with friends for Sunday Dinner and a few drinks… and in between all this I had cards to make and orders to send out.

It is just a super quick and easy card today again, I found a box with loads of goodies in it that I forgot I had, so I used one of the little cards from the ephemera pack for my focal point of the card.

you make me happy

Supplies List :-

  • Daler & Rowney Watercolour paper/cardstock
  • Spellbinders scallop rectangle die
  • Scotch Double sided foam tape & scortape
  • Some matching blue-green patterned paper to match the focal image

you make me happy 2

Did you spot that I stuck the focal image on squint? 😉

As always thanks for popping round and joining me on my journey
