Happy Birthday Paul!!

37 years young apparently ... although I always tell him he is old! 

so I thought I would share a couple of his birthday cards ... I cant share one as I have used an unreleased image! (no peeking!) but I will share the other one ....


One very paper pieced Maurice!! I think he looks great!! This card is from my Dad and Step mum. The papers are Crate Paper, but believe it or not they are XMAS papers!! .... they are all double sided so I just used the non christmassy side and I reckon it works well!! 

I also had a play with some heat embossing, my first ever attempts at this were awful and such a mess, not sure why I couldnt get it to go right and I tried everything ... now 3 years down the line I bought some clear embossing powder and a ink pad and gave it a whirl, the picture doesnt show it that well but in real life you can read it properly .... 


It says you're how old?? 

The sentiment is from Ladybug Crafts Ink, part of a set from the Wrinkleys range! 

Tomorrow I will be back with a very special little card (approx 3x2 inch!!) which my little Maddison made for Daddy ... she did very well with decoupage after I cut it all out for her. Think we have a little crafter in the making! 

Did I mention you still have a few more days to adopt some cute stamps at half price? So what are you waiting for, hop on over and fill your basket!! 

click on the picture!
