Rose Birthday Card

Hello hope you are well. Things are a bit grey and wet here so I think summer has finally gone. Just as a little reminder for the passing season I thought I would post a cheery rose birthday card that I made for a friend. The main stamp was a do craft stamp and the background was a Tea Rose stamp from Joanna Sheen.
I now have my craft room in some sort of order so am able to find things again. You would not believe the state it had got into. Have no idea how it happened it just sort of evolved until it was impossible to find anything lol. So now there is no excuse to get creative..........
Be back soon xxx.

Happy Anniversary To Me!

Today is mine and my husband's 17th wedding anniversary. We all seem to struggle over men cards and this was no exception. I started with a DL base card and created the backing paper using some light blue card to which I stamped the Hero Arts script stamp. I then stamped the stop watch and key designs (all hero arts and picked up super cheaply in our local Home Sense store)over the script and then sponged distress ink over the top. The glasses, frame and border are all from a clear stamp set from Personal Impressions and the sentiment was created using the computer. The card was finished off with little photo clips. I think my husband appreciated it......!
