Kerry's Birthday Card
Well its my daughters 16th Birthday today and here is the card which I made for her. The stamp is from Crafty Individuals, I had forgotten I had it and only found it when I was looking for something under the bed the other day!! I have coloured the image slightly with Distress Inks and added a bit of shimmer with Glimmer Mist. The papers are from Magnolia and I have stamped the edges of them with another gorgeous Stempelglede flourish stamp. The butterfly and border are made with Martha Stewart punches and I have added a Cuttlebug corner.
I am hoping to start another card today, depending on what the boys are doing although they are both out playing in the woods at the moment - I wonder how muddy they will get!!!!!!
Have a good Thursday.

Simon Says Stamp 'Thanks' Challenge - Stempelglede Card
Well it's only taken about a month for me to make another card!!! I have made this card using a new set of Stempelglede stamps which I got from Quixotic Paperie. I had such fun making this card and messing with lots of long forgotten crafting goodies. I stamped the main heart image onto off white card and then stamped around the edge of the card with a Stempelglede flourish stamp. I also stamped the image on to brown card with Versamark and embossed this and bits of the white card with gold embossing powder. The music paper is also stamped with the flourish stamp and I have sprayed Glimmer Mist for a bit of sparkle. The butterflies and leaves are cut with a Martha Stewart punch and the flowers and pearl sprays are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
That's my card making finished for the day as I'm off to bed in a bit to try and get a bit of sleep before work at 11 tonight - still only tonight and tomorrow and then I'm off for a week!!!
Have a good weekend.
