Happy Birthday

Today's card is for 2 challenges.

The first is Stampin Royalty where they have this sketch

and the second is ColourQ where they have this colour palette

Here is my card

Recipe :
Card = Very Vanilla, Real Red, Pretty in Pink, and cream card from my stash
Stamps = Baroque Motifs, Ornate Flowers, and Verve
Inks = Real Red, Pretty in Pink, and Pool Party ( I don't have Cool Caribbean )
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Swirl embossing folder, Martha Stewart border punch, and Readicut 2 step flower punches
Extras = 3D pads and white Pearl gems

I wasn't too sure about the blue flower stems and Baroque Motif at first, but I think because they are so pale they can pass as bluey green foliage. What do you think??

I've had a terrible few days............On Thursday night, I found my old neighbour ( a widower who is on the verge of  Dementia) in a Diabetic coma again and had to get the ambulance out. Thankfully, he is still in hospital and the Dr.s have found more complications that I wasn't aware of, so he is now getting the right treatment he needs. I hope for his sake he will be there for a while yet, so that some Home care can be sorted out for when he comes home, as his son lives in London and there is no one else other than me.

I hope to get some more crafting done in the next few days, but who knows what will happen??

Thanks for looking today

  5. I think the stems look great in Pool Party Bev - it's a lovely card. So sorry to hear about your crisis with your neighbour. You must really feel the responsibility - I do hope the local authority gets some home care sorted. Vicky x
