Hi to any who are visiting today, hope your day has been an easy one and you are keeping warm or cool, LOL, depending where you live. Me... I'm trying to stay warm.
Shirley, Fran and I had a productive morning making 3 fab cards and catching up since last week. Doug (Shirley's hubby) was home as it was a bit too cool for a ride out on his gopher.
Fran and I stopped as usual for lunch at a little eatery on the way home and congratulated the owner on winning a small business award, she came second in the unlicensed eatery category. She has been in the running for the last 4 years and finally won an award. Sounds like she just missed out on first place.
We decided to take a run out to a craft shop for a bit of a look around. We were after a piece of 12x12 paper that has retro ladies all over it. No luck, but one shop said she would try and look for us with her suppliers.
I came home late afternoon, tidied the kitchen and set about making a casserole for tea. Hubby liked it and had several helpings!!!
No choir practise tonight as it was our AGM. We had our meeting and then supper. We usually have the supper as a thankyou to the members of "The Friends of the Choir" as they help out at concerts and also do some fundraising for us throughout the year.
Well after getting home a bit later than usual, I sat down after having a nice coffee and made this card.
I've used SU Cherry Cobbler for the basecard. I've used an octagonal nestie die to cut the card base and made it into a small easel card. I cut another octagon and placed on the folded top to create the easel. I added a diecut in SU Pink Pirouette and then stamped the little fairy from Kanban Stamps - Fairy cakes and coloured her with Copic Markers. I went over the star and little dots with a gold Jelly roll pen to give it a bit of glitter. I stamped the sentiment in SU Cherry Cobbler and finished off the front with lots of tiny little pink bling.
On the inside, I used another pink diecut and added "Happy Birthday" again in Cherry Cobbler ink. I also cut a small octagon in the Cherry Cobbler, then traced around the inside of the die and cut it out in the pink card. I stamped another little star in the middle - coloured with a Copic Marker and then went over it again with the Jelly Roll pen. I popped this on with foam dots so it would hold the easel panel when open.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Make It Monday Linky Party - #91 ~ Anything Goes
