It's your birthday

This card was made using one piece of patterned paper cut to the same size as the card stock . In effect you cut two frames from the paper leaving a centre rectangle .The two middle sections are matted onto pink card and re positioned to match up the paper .

Paper is from Inque ' Memoirs' and the stamp is Kaisecraft.

Readers Gallery

I said in my last post that this little birdie stamp was my favourite and here it is again in Spring colours ,the team at the magazine thought it was worthy of a place in the readers gallery.
I used this stamp for most of my Christmas cards ,coloured blue and grey with lots of glitter ,you can see them here . Later this week I have another batch of cards almost ready to submit to the magazine.

Autumn is here

The theme at Papercraft Star is Birds -challenge 137 -  I've used this stamp so many times in so many colour combinations , it will always be my favourite stamp.

It was good to get back in the craft room this week and make a few cards ,after the disaster of my computer crashing and losing everything stored on it I was a bit crabby and couldn't see past what I had lost.

On Saturday my computer crashed so it's been in   the ER all week , the doctors have done a good a job .The patient has survived but only just,some memory loss has occurred and lots of new bits have been installed.I will get my computer back on Friday but won't be up and running for a couple of days.

Update ; well I'm back up and running but I have lost all my music ,games and craft stuff . The music and games and I can live without but the craft stuff is another matter, all the lovely images I have bought and the freebies given so generously have all gone . My New Year resolution not to buy any new craft stuff still stands so I guess for the next 9 months I will be limping along.

Enjoy your weekend .
