Birthday Roses

First of all I'd like to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year - thank you for watching my blog and for the lovely comments during the year.

The roads outside my house are like a skating rink so I thought my best course today would be to stay in and make some cards. Luckily my goodies arrived from Stampin Up earlier in the week so have managed to have a play with the Rose is a Rose stamp set with Pale Plum and Perfect Plum ink pads for this birthday card - certainly makes a change from Christmas cards!! Background papers are from Artylicious and the stamps used for the greeting panel are by Elusive Images. Matching SU card was embossed with a cuttlebug folder and a ribbon and some gems finish off the card.

One I did earlier

This is a case of one I did earlier - it is a card made for a swap on the Graphicus Guild Yahoo group and now that it has safely reached its destination I can safely post it here. The background is Glimmer Mist with snowflakes over-stamped in Brilliance white. The trees and reindeer are Tim Holtz stamps.

I must start with apologies for not posting for a couple of weeks - I am having work done in the house and haven't been able to make any cards. For one week I couldn't really get into the kitchen much either which didn't bother me unduly but I get real withdrawal symptoms if I can't get at all my crafting bits and pieces!! As workmen don't come on a Sunday I was able to get in there but had to start by putting away the Christmas 'bits' and tidy up a bit before I could start and have just about managed to make a simple card to post so that folks won't think that I've disappeared off the face of the earth. Image and background paper are from Joanna Sheen's Royal Horticultural Society CD set, mounted onto silver mirri card.
