Happy Birthday Friend

Today's card is for the ColourQ challenge where they have this palette of yummy colours for us

This is what I came up with

Some red card was embossed and wrapped with a black ribbon, and then the Nestabilities  panels were stamped and decorated before being stuck down. The small panel and large red flower were raised on 3D pads, and the finishing touches are the Shapeabilities sponged butterfly and the red gems ( I hope this is OK with ColourQ ??? )

Recipe :
Card = Whisper White, Poppy Parade, Basic Black, and White card base from my stash
Stamps = Vintage Vogue, My Friend, and Verve
Inks = Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, and Lucky Limeade
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Shapeabilities,  Cottage Floral embossing folder, and Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras = Black ribbon, red gems, and 3D pads

I started this card around at Jacqueline's yesterday afternoon, before having to fly home to mark out my garden boundary, following a dispute with my deceased neighbours son!!!  The story is too long and complicated so I wont bore you, but today all my family came over to erect my new fence. What a long tiring day!!, but after it all I had a fab fence................................and a new sculpture that Nathan made for me, as he says " to keep for ever and ever Aunt Bev". Bless him he was so proud, and it now takes pride of place in my garden. I haven't photographed it yet but I'll show it to you in my next post.

Tomorrow is Grand Prix day so I'll be up with the Lark for the start at 7am, and hopefully I can stay awake long enough to do some crafting in the afternoon.

Monday is my niece Sophie's first Birthday, so I'll be exhausted playing all sorts of kids games, and eating lots of jelly, ice cream, cakes, and sweets!!!!   Why is it when you reach the ripe old age of 9 or 10, these things just don't seem to be top of the menu anymore???

Anyway, I'll be back again soon.

Thanks for dropping by today, and I'd love it if you'd call again soon.

  4. My goodness those colours are gorgeous and you've made a lovely card with them Bev. I love the variety of flowers. I'm so sorry to hear you're having disputes with your neighbour's son especially after everything you've done to help your neighbour, but at least you now have a fabulous new fence and a wonderful sculpture too!
