Coooooeeeeeee! Anyone still out there? I know my blog has been home to nothing but tumbleweed lately, but my mission for September is to blog daily and try to keep up with visiting all my lovely blog buddies out there.
This is a card that I made for my niece's birthday back in April that I don't think I've shared yet. It was one of those, oops it's her birthday tomorrow cards that was rustled up for leftover bits lying around. I'd spread some glitter paste through a Dutch Doobadoo stencil on a 5x7 card base when playing with the then new Clearly Besotted sea themed stamp set. I'd stamped the Stampin' Bella Brianna stamp and coloured it with my copics a while ago and so fussy cut that out and added it to the card on 1mm foam tape. A rummage in the die cut bits box yielded the sparkly dangly hearts (Memory Box I think) and I added them to the card. I also found a couple of the happy birthday die cuts in different shades of blue. I glued two together to give more strength as they were going over the sparkle paste in places and glued them in place. To finish, I added a doddled border to the card and some glitter to her wings. Not the best card I've ever created but certainly one of the quickest. I think my niece likes it, although she probably liked the gift card that was enclosed in it more!
I can't believe it's September already, this year has really flown by. I'm going to have to get cracking with my Christmas cards soon. I hope you all have a great craft filled weekend x
