Another card using my wee cottage. Are you bored yet? Lol - something different next time, promise.
Thought I'd try out a different colour scheme - see ladies and gents, I'm making a big effort to propel myself into the new 'spring' colour mode!! The papers are from Basic Grey - Sugared collection - I'm sure you are all old friends with this but my jaw dropped at the fabulousness of the patterns when a parcel of this stuff landed on my doorstep from my friend Beverly at precious scraps - incidentaly, nip over to her blog - she's looking for DT people!!!!
Olive, pink and yellow are the unlikely combination of the lovely patterned paper and I tried to echo this in my colouring of the cottage - think it just about gets away with it...
This card is destined for a very dear friend of mine, also stateside, from whom I was particularly delighted to hear from today!!
I finally got to do some stitching on a card - been itching to do that but it's such a nuisance lugging my heavy machine out of its hidey hole that I've only just managed it.
Anyhow - hope it tickles.
Today is my Birthday - I have had loads of lovely wishes from many folks - even some lovely blog readers wanted to send me cards - Thank you so much - the fact that you thought about it is enough for me.
Beth wants to know what I got - so here's the 'skinny' as she puts it. My Best pal Genevieve bought me a Build-a-bear!!!! I have wanted one for ages - its a lovely huggly brown curly fur one called Coco. I also received a card from Genevieve which I have put on the sidebar.
My wee folk got me sweets!! yum. Himself is taking me out at the weekend and my mum and aunt gave me pennies - you can all guess where that's going...Lol.
In the post I received a card from Lynn - supernaturally gifted Lynn who knew it was my birthday even tho I don't remember telling her...
It's a gorgeous card with butterflies and having seen it the butterfly stamps are now first on my list at PTI - I had been thinking about them but Lynn's convinced me - the card is stunning!!
