My very best friend Arline is celebrating her birthday today, happy Birthday Arline!! She has to spend her day teaching children but I am glad to say that she sent me a text message this morning saying she was thrilled with all of her cards and the prezzies I got her (3 sets of Pro Markers and 10 Spiral Whisper stamps). Here is the card I made her off me and my OH, it's an 8" x 8" card which I made into a card by punching holes on the left hand side and then attaching another piece of 8" x 8" card with ribbons to create an opening card, I used this gorgeous Rachelle Anne Miller stamp which I know Arline loves and I even made her a matching candle!
This next card is from me again, we are on a birthday list together so this is my card to her from me for the birthday list! I used one of my new gorgeous Forever Friends stamps coloured with Pro Markers, I used Saffron for the bear, outlined with Apricot and the pink is Blossom. I must tell you that I spent a lot of time finding the perfect combination and I think this is the most life-like!! (Sorry to sound a little bit mad but I have collected these bears for years so had to get it spot on lol!!) Arline just loves pink so I thought I'd go really girlie and used papers from the new Eva Basic Grey pad and from the Forever Friends celebrtion pad too. The birthday sentiment is one of my favourites, it's from a Penny Black clear set, and the friend stamp is from Stamps Away by Clevercut. And I also made her a card off Dylan (he just isn't into crafting at all!) But I can't show you that just yet... you will just have to wait a bit longer...
Well, that's my news for today, thanks so much for all your kind comments, they have bought a tear to my eye! I made these cards whilst I still had my mojo, if only I had it now cause I'm really proud of these cards, will go off and have a sulk lol!!
Love Becky xx
