Good Friday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and ready for a lovely relaxed weekend.
The blog has been really quiet this week with a few ladies away, I hope you have managed to put your feet up Janet 😜
Today I am sharing two more of my lovely birthday cards :
The first is the original birthday card that Lilian sent me, I was lucky like the queen and got two, only because the original one came a little early.
It has a beautifully hand stamped background in shades of blue, the corners have pretty filigree foil die cuts, the gorgeous focal element is a beautifully coloured floral vine, it looks a bit like a periwinkle we have in the garden. Finished with a pretty little butterfly.
Thank you so much Lilian, I loved this card very much xxx
The second card today is a gorgeous card from our lovely Val, this card has a lovely backing paper in my favourite colour, the paper has a delicate script design running through it too. Now I have to say I have never seen Sue's 'Intertwining Circles' striplet used when die cut in decorative paper, it really makes it blend with the background giving more of a delicate design, rather than being at the front of a card as the main focus. I love how you have designed this card Val, so much thought has gone into it, I also love sentiments on Vellum, I think that just look so subtle, not taking away from the decorative elements of the card.
Thank you so much Val, as with all of my birthday cards it will be treasured forever. xxx
We have a busy weekend planned, we are off to my mum's on Saturday, which will pretty much write off the whole weekend. It will be lovely to catch up with my family though. It will be good to see how mum is getting on since fracturing her spine, she has sounded ok on the phone, but we'll see when we get there.
Oh before I forget Stampin Up! Is celebrating World Card Making day, which I think was yesterday, so up until the 7th October they have some reduced basic card making items, so it's well worth popping over to my shop and having a look. There are some fantastic goodies in the Sale Rack too,
let me know if you want anything, or you can order direct from the site, links are in the 'Contact me' section, scroll to top and click it.
Have a lovely Friday
Love and hugs to all of you
