Another Birthday Card

I have just completed this card for yet another birthday, the background is Cuttlebug embossed using Swiss dots, the ovals in the middle have been cut using Nestabilities, the poppies are Stamps by Hero Arts hand coloured with water soluble crayons blended and then covered with dimensional magic and beads added, while wet.
I am also entering for the first time a challenge run monthly at Inkurable Stampers which can be found here at this months challenge was to use a flower stamp.

Surprise Card

I have made this card for a very talented lady(I'm pretty sure she doesn't look at my blog). I just hope it comes up to the standard that she sets herself.

Calender Swap

I have finally finished something and its my perpetual calender swap with Arty-International Group, it is not due until October but I just like to get things finished. I have painted the background with a bit of sequent waste stencilling and stamping down the sides. The picture has been distressed and mounted on thick card to give the illusion of an old cabinet card, with beading and german scrap at the top.

The 21st Party

Stuart's party was on Saturday night and fun was had by all, the last photo above was the morning of his birthday(Peter and I were off to work) Stuart was dragged out of bed at 7.30am when we were about to leave.
Lots of cleaning up to do yesterday with lots of garbage to be taken out, both Peter and I were exhausted, we ended up in bed early both totally out to the count very quickly.
