2 BIrthday Cards

My mother in law recently celebrated her Birthday.  The day before.  I had just received a set of Nestabilities dies that I bought from Hannah.  The dies were on my list of wants, and was delighted to get them as when you want something, you always get ideas of what to do with the item when you get it.

The papers are mainly Crate Paper, Portrait collection, with a rogue sheet of Girls Paperie (dotty!) added in to make it pop!  The sentiment and journal tag are both stamped.  The whole card has been stitched over in black (labour of love!).

The next card was a quick and simple card for my boss who also celebrated his Birthday while he was working here in Dublin.  He got to take myself and my DH out for dinner!  So the least I could do is make him a card and buy him a pint!

So photo taken last minute before I ran out the door, but you get the idea, it's not a full red, it's, more muted.  Teresa Collins stamp and not sure who made the ticket.

More to come, just going to add them now to blogger for scheduled posting - so keep coming back!  Have a fab new kit on my desk from Hannah - just waiting for time to play with it!!!!
