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 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.
