Birthdays and Awards

I like to make birthday cards for my crafting buddies. A lot of whom I have never met as they are mostly here on the internet in swap groups. So anyway today is the birthday of one of the ladies in one of the groups I belong too. I actually made 3 of these cards as I have some more friends with birthdays coming up in the next couple of weeks. I made these cards a couple of days ago and I got one in the mail already for my friend today, but this is the first chance I have had to post a message.


I actually used this weeks SCS Sketch Challenge (SC170). The cardstock used is Rose Red, Almost Amethyst and Garden Green. Stamp sets were 'Along the Same Lines' and 'Birthday Whimsy'. I Versamarked the rose red cardstock with the present stamp from birthday whimsy and stamped Happy birthday in black in the bottom left corner. I found some cool DP that had candles all over it and mounted it onto the garden green. I wrapped some silver cord around and tied it. I colored my image using colors from the cardstock and the DP and mounted that on the almost amethyst. I am finding sketches more and more handy when my mojo goes awol.

Oh and I got another award. It's the same one as last time but this time Gabby from http://confessionsofastamper.blogspot.com/ gave it to me. Thankyou Gabby. It is really lovely to know that people enjoy seeing what I manage to squeeze into my spare time. I'm not going to pass it on this time as I already have once but would like to point out my inspiration central. These are links to all my favorite bloggers. Go take a peak. I consider them all worthy of this award.

Hugs
