Have a beautiful day

Thought I'd share a birthday card I made for a very special lady recently!
It made me smile I used her own designs for her card!
The lovely Linda Bontrager had a birthday while we were at CHA
so I couldn't not go without a card for her!

I have been so quiet recently and I'm sorry...... 
BUT things are changing and I have some exciting changes 
in my crafty work that mean I will be around much more!
Tutorials, Live Facebook crafty sessions, crafty tips...... 
just a few of the things that are coming soon! So exciting! 

So my card..... I used a card front from the Birds and Blooms
paper pad and the Classic Rose stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations.
Oooh don't miss the DT call at Heartfelt Creations!!!!!

Birthday roses

I thought I would share the card I made for my Aunt's birthday!
She finally has it in her hands no so it's safe to share lol!

I just LOVE the Raindrops on Roses paper pad from Heartfelt Creations,
it's my favourite well I think it is there are a few I'd say that about lol!
I used a card front from the paper pad for my card and 
decorated it with the Classic Rose also from Heartfelt Creations.

I had great fun with my roses I went for the distressed look.
It's really easy! Stamp, colour and cut your flowers and then
spray with water. Scrunch and twist them and leave to dry!
When they are dry gently unfold the petals and
layer them up to form your flowers!

Of course I HAD to add glitter to the roses too.

Happy crafting!
