I made this card for my daughter to give to her flatmate who has now finished university here and has returned to France to go on to bigger and better things I am sure :-)  I know that they will both miss each other, they have been like sisters since they were about 13.

I love embossing paste !! have you got some ? It is my all time fave product I think ! I squidgied some Doll Pink Ink onto a craft mat and smooched in the embossing paste and some bead glitter gel,, love this too ,, so sparkly. I then used a Simon's Exclusive Medium Dot Stencil to create the background. 


I used a Hero Arts Friend Definition background stamp for the postage stamp die cut, quite fitting I thought ,, haha. This Freckled Fawn Grey Airmail Washi is also a fave , as is the Irridescent String and the Woodgrain Cardstock,,, ss you can see I used a few faves today ,,, and the Plane Die ,,, yep that too  :-)

Simon's Exclusive Birthday Farm Animals :-)

Hi all :-) I am here with a quick and easy birthday card using the super cute Birthday Farm Animal Stamp and Die Set from Simon Says Stamp. These sets make cardmaking super easy ,, fussy cutting was never my strong point so the coordinating dies are perfect for me :-)


I followed this weeks sketch on the Splitcoast Stampers site. I masked a square and used a Tim Holtz stencil to create the spotty design. 


I quite like the balloon carrying the little piggy up into the sky ,,,, haha :-)

I finished the inside very simply but I think it still makes it a bit more special eh :-)
