Happy Birthday Baby!




Today my husband is celebrating his XXth birthday - I would tell you how many years it actually is, but he's a bit sensitive about it. (Which amuses me as I am quite a few years older than him) But here's the card I made him... really simple, but effective don't you think?

I actually really enjoy the opportunity to make cards for guys. This one uses the Spring Break paper (great for guy's cards). I crimped the Pumpkin Pie Cardstock and set a Jumbo eyelet with the CropADile, and then tied some Taffeta ribbon through. The cake image is stamped with Stazon Ink on Watercolour paper, and then watercoloured with dye inks and aquapainters. The image is from the "Fun and Fast Notes" stamp set. And that's it! The whole card probably took me 10 or 12 minutes from start to finish.

Where can you get all these wonderful items? From me of course! Just email me at higgiz@bigpond.com or call me on 0412 375 552 to place your order and I can have it sent to you anywhere in Australia. Dont forget that you will currently receive a free stamp set from the SAB catalogue if your order is over $100. Click here to view the free stamp sets available.

If you like the look of the Watercolouring you see here I am doing a Watercolouring class at 10.30am Wednesday 25th February here at Narara on the Central Coast, NSW. We will make several projects and you will learn some valuable tips and tricks for Watercolouring. The class will cost $15 and all materials and refreshments are provided. At the time of writing this I only have 2 spaces left, so get in quick!

Here's a close up of the card for you:



Happy Stamping!
