I'm lucky enough to have two weeks off work at the mo, but I've realised it's my friend at work's birthday on Saturday, so I need to post her a card tomorrow. No problem, I thought, I'm always making cards. But when I looked, I had 'thank you', 'new baby', 'new home', 'get well soon', 'Christmas'........ very few birthday cards and they just didn't seem right for my friend. I suppose it's because often I make a bday card with a particular person in mind.
So I decided - a) I need to stock up on bday cards , and b) I needed to make one quickly!
In a hurry, I find my Silhouette Cameo , and a couple of challenges, invaluable.
I had already intended to enter the City Crafter challenge 'balloons' , because I can't use enough images of hot air balloons , I love them so much. I also spotted a useful -looking sketch at Feeling Sketchy.
So, I cut out the balloon, border and scalloped circle using the Silhouette Cameo, Kirsty Wiseman patterns and black cs. I stamped some turquoise cardstock with a Woodware(?) sentiment and then embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder.
As well as City Crafter and Feeling Sketchy, I'd like to enter:
