Birthday Boy

As I said yesterday it's John's birthday today and he shares it with the Queen. He says that when he lived in London he always got a 21 gun salute but all he gets up here in the West Midlands is a quick verse of Happy Birthday to You. Not quite the same is it?

Here is the card I made for him.

It's a stand up card that folds flat. I hadn't made on of these for ages but saw Haley making one on C&C last week and decided to use the design for John's card.  The text paper is actually Tim Holtz tissue tape laid out in strips and Distress Inked.  The image is by Crafty Individuals and the ticket is one of Creative Expressions.

Now here are a few more that I've created over the past week.

A Buzcraft stamp watercoloured.

A butterfly medallion coloured with Chrystal Laquer

Penny Black Stamp coloured with copics. I am entering this into the Simon Says Stamp challenge

 A quick and easy box. The lid and base cut with Nestabilities and the stamp is from the CC Occasions collection.

Hope you all have a good weekend and thank you so  much for visiting me and leaving comments, I really do appreciate it.
