Happy Birthday..

Morning to you all, i hope your all managing to keep warm. I have  a friends birthday coming up in early March he lives in America so i thought i would go with a red, white and blue theme. I found some old star sequin waste which gave me the idea to use the colours of the American flag. I used the star sequin waste as a stencil, stamped and coloured one of the Tim Holtz Crazy dogs, then cut him out, i stamped  the balloons hat and parcel from Tim holtz crazy things coloured them with Copic markers and cut them out, then added them to my card. stamped Happy Birthday sentiment which  is from woodware, i then matted this onto a blue piece of card to finish off.

With Love

Morning to you all,  hope your all keeping warm. Yesterday here in the Algarve was sunny but with a cold wind, so i stayed home all day made a couple of birthday cards and this valentine/ with love card. The background papers are from Penny Black Beau Jardin 6x6 paper pad. Stamps are Penny Black, that I stamped onto a square stitch edge die cut,  then  I coloured my images with my promarkers. I stamped some of the hearts twice and  fussy cut them out , then i paper pieced some of them on top of the stamped hearts. With Love stamp has lost it pkt but i think its a woodware one.
