Penny Black Happy Birthday

Created this happy little card using a Penny Black stamp. I think this stamp is lovely and always goes down well with my daughters' friends. Coloured using my Faber Castell watercolour pencils and mounted up on some gingham paper and blue card. The ribbon was donated by my daughter and the felt flower is from American Crafts. I finished off with a little Stickles glitter. Lovely!

Card for my love!

This card I created for my other half Gary. We have been married for almost 18years now and he is my one true friend. Even after all these years thoughts of him still touch my heart and make me smile. I love him dearly! I didn't want anything too feminine, though I have very little inspiration with it comes to male card making. This paper has been in my stash for quite a while as I loved the pattern and colours, but never really knew what to do with it. It is from Dream Street Papers, I distressed using Tim Holtz distressing inks, the scripted paper is from Pink Petticoat's Just an Old Fashioned Girl, the chipboard letter is from Prima, and has also been in my stash forever. The stamped lettering was made using SeeDee's alphabet though I'm not sure which, and Tim Holtz yet again. I couldn't help myself and added a little Laura Ashley fabric brad as well. I love this and when I presented it to Gary he was delighted. He's such an old romantic!
