Happy Birthday

It is not very often you get the opportunity to make a card for 
someone who is coming up to 100.
But this is the pleasurable task that I was set this week. 

I started with a cream card base used the 
Sizzix Scalloped border die thinking that I was cutting out
the pattern only to find it had cut the card base.
Not that that really mattered
A piece of pink card soon filled up the space and I cut 
the left over piece of cream card with the plain scallop border
and popped it over the pink edge.
Another piece of pink card with the plain scallop border
probably finished the base card better than my first idea.
I cut out SW Frames and tags Maggie
{Well I had to buy Maggie }
in pink and cream.
The larger flowers which are white and cream, the camera 
has not picked them up very well, have been in my stash for years.
The rose buds were made with Sizzix cinch and go flowers.
The ivy was scraps of white card sponged with
DI Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive and 
Memento Cottage Ivy.
The one sprig off silver ivy and the numbers look tarnished 
but here again it is the camera's fault.

Have a great day.

A spring birthday card

I have just been trying to compute my brain from 
Eastern standard time to Greenwich mean time
but alas my brain is not computing as well as it should.
Trying to work out what time I needed to schedule this post to go live.
I blame it all on this heatwave we are having here in 
Tassie we are not used to this heat and certainly not the humidity.
The hottest November for 150 years!

Anyway on to my DT card for the December 
What a love selection of cards there were in the November challenge.
I have had a great time visiting and finding new blogs along the way.

I pulled out a punch to make a pretty little border to go with this piece of 
Nit Wit paper that I have matched up to some lovely blue card.  
I coloured the pearls with a copic {sorry can't remember the no} 
and was so delighted they were such a perfect match.
A lovely spring card that I think I made when I was wishing the weather 
would warm up at the beginning of spring.
We are never satisfied are we?

I wish you all a lovely day. 
Christmas seems in a hurry to get here doesn't it?
