With much love...

Today, I thought I'd show you this card that I've been working on. I made it as a birthday card for a young girl who always, more or less without fail, comes to see me demoing at Derby's Craft Central. She is a lovely girl with a wonderful nature.... and after a conversation with her and her mum last time, I know it's her birthday in August..

Well, as I am only there this Saturday, I am going to take it with me, but the greeting inside just says 'With much love' instead of Happy Birthday.. I mean - you don't give a card a month early do you?!


The image below shows what the inside looks like. I decorated it up to match with the front, although I've used a different shape for the greeting panel.


I got this stamp on a whim a while ago.. and thought I could use it for another birthday I have coming up soon for someone.. but isn't she lovely? Quite funky for a teenager I thought.


I made the flower from a range of circle dies... these are new from Docrafts - fab!! I had to use a couple of smaller punches for the inside of the bloom, but it still works.

I hope you like the card today.. More coming soon! And yes.. it'll be that 'C' word coming shortly! That's what I'm working on as we speak. (And actually, what I've been working on all last week too.. lol).

Merry Christmas.  Whoops.. I mean.. Happy Crafting!
