Welcome to Your New Home!

My friend has just moved house, so I made this card for her.  For the woodgrained background I used the SU stamp and Rose Pink card but with Ranger Picked Raspberry Ink. This is a very large stamp so rather than use a block I prefer to stick the stamp to the craft table then ink up the stamp and put the card face down on top! Rub all over thoroughly! Perfect impression every time doing this....Result!  The cute little birdhouse was a freebie from a magazine and the first time I have used it, but I will definitely use it again.  I coloured it with Promarkers and then used a pink Promarker to freehand draw the lines around the edge. It had to have a bit of sparkle, so I coloured the little blue birds with my clear Wink of Stella brush.  Sorry you can't really see the sparkle in this picture.  This is a sweet little 5 x 5 card, very girly and just right for my friend!

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!

Candles Birthday Card

This is a very nice and effective card, you can make it using scraps if you have enough.  I used papers that I had as a freebie from a magazine give away!  I saw a similar design on Pinterest so cannot claim it as totally my own, but the inspiration inspired me to have a go at giving it my own slant.  The design on Pinterest used a star punch or stamp which I don't have so I had to improvise.  Anyway, I like it and will probably make it again very soon as there are two more important birthdays coming up!  This one was for a boy and I was very happy when he phoned me to say he really liked it!  Recognition at last!!!

Hope you like it too, and thanks for stopping by!
