Happy Birthday

Good morning all...hark at me, blogging just for the sake of it!!

The new house is finally coming on a treat and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Lots of cleaning to do though to make each room habitable. The first of my carpets will be fitted this week and I'll be able to start dressing the rooms...finally!

It's been a busy month with birthdays so far and hubby has his birthday today. Most of my stash is at the new house now but I still have a workstation set up here so I've been busy beavering away of an evening. This is the card I made for my sister earlier this month.

Using a Paintbox Poppets decoupage sheet from Crafters Companion...I die cut the main sheet to fit my square card base. Dies are all from Spellbinders, backing paper, bow and sentiment from my stash. A very simple card which went together seamlessly.


  1. A lovely card - beautiful image and great layers too.

  4. A pretty card Carol, such a gorgeous image - I bet your sister loved it.
    I'm glad that everything is coming together at the new house, it must be really exciting having a blank canvas to work with now that you can start dressing the rooms - I hope you will share some photographs when it is all finished.

  5. Lovely colourful card Carol....isn't it great when a card comes together as you want it! .....I am walking away from a christening card at the moment over thinking it ....glad you are getting all squared up,it will feel like home when the carpets are down xxxxx
