Happy 50th Birthday

It's half term and the kids are at home!!!! I just finished this card over the weekend for my friend Judith who is celebrating her 50th birthday. Unfortunately, she lives up North and I don't get to see her these days but we do catch up on the phone.

I cut everything out on my Pazzles including my base card, frame and numbers for this shaped card!

Normally, I would go to my Cricut to cut the numbers out but I found just the look I wanted with this was so easy to cut them out.

I finally added the greeting and these new flowers that I bought at the weekend.

I really would like to use more flowers on my cards but would like to know how to arrange a bunch and how to adhere them onto a card. So, if anyone has seen a good video on flower arrangements on cards.......please would you let me know.

I doubt if I will be able to make any cards this week with the kids on half term, so it may be quiet here on my blog for the rest of the week!

Clover Leaf Shaped Card

Hooray, it's time for a Giveaway at The Cutting Cafe where there is a Monthly Inspiration by the Design Team. This month Regina has asked us to make a project using one of her files using the colour green. Now, this is not my favourite colour, but I have just made one of my quickest card to date!

For the challenge 'Go Green' I used the Clover Leaf.cut file to make this Shaped Card. Super easy, I cut it out of Kraft card stock and cut a smaller piece in patterned paper.

Yesterday, I was at my local craft shop and bought the flower for the centre and adhered it to this lovely suede effect ribbon. I finally added some dimensions with one of my gel pens and I was done in 10 minutes! I wish I could get all of my cards made this quickly!

Anyhow, back to the GIVEAWAY.......

On the 18th February, all you have to do is pop over to The Cutting Cafe where there will be prizes up for grabs.

However, if you leave a comment here on this post, you will also have a chance to win this Clover Leaf shaped card template which comes in WPC, PDF and SVG formats. Comments will be open until February 20th when I will draw a WINNER!

So, please don't forget to leave me a lovely COMMENT!
