Plain and Simple 'Happy Birthday'

Good evening and thanks for popping by.  It's the first of my two days off this week so I thought I would spend some time tidying my craft cupboard and making room for my growing stash of Project Life goodies :)    I thought it may help me if I had a separate place for all specific PL stash so that I am not having to rummage through all my card making stuff to find what I need, up to date I have one shelf allocated in one cupboard....Do you think this will be enough space?....Hmmm, somehow I don't think so LoL  

I have my second page to show you today, I chose my favourite photo of Maisie to make into a 6 x 8 layout.  This photo is so sweet and I just felt it needed documenting, I hope you agree :)  I used some 12 x 12 paper that I cut down and added a 3 x 4 journal card with gold foiling down the edge.  I die cut Maisie's name with a Spellbinders alphabet die and added some enamel hearts and a cute little doggy button as embellishments.  I also stamped 'Love This!' and a paw print on the page and added a die-cut arrow.  

Look out for my next page as it's well under way now :)

The card I have made is quite a simple one and I thought would be perfect as a male card, in fact I have someone in mind for it as unfortunately I have missed their birthday so it is going to be a little late :(  Hey ho, better late than never!

I used a Hero Arts Stamp and Cut set for this card.  I die cut the 'happy' three times and layered them onto each other to give the word dimension.  I then stamped the small 'birthday' in Memento 'Ladybug' ink.  I used a LittleB die from the Arrows set to cut out and piece in the chevron and then added some Doodlebug sprinkles to decorate.  I added 3d foam to the top layer which I had cut out using a stitched rectangle die from Mama Elephant and popped it onto a plain white card blank and hey presto! a quick and simple card made. :)

Well it's a beautiful evening here in North Yorkshire so I think my sweet little Maisie deserves a walk before we settle down to watch today's stage of the Giro d'Italia, for those of you who don't know, it's the Italian version of the Tour de France and it's pretty exciting already and we are only in the early stages :)  

Hope you all have a good week and don't forget to keep dropping by as it's always lovely to see you :)

A Little Birthday Snack....

Good evening folks, thanks for dropping by.  I am showing the birthday card that I made for my brother a couple of months ago, it was only when I was going through my photos on my camera that I realised I hadn't blogged this card :)  

The stamp is a Penny Black image 'A little bird..'  I stamped the image and then as always, coloured with my Copics.  I used some Webster's Pages paper with feather images on and cut them out using a Joy Crafts feather die.  I cut out the layer using a stitched rectangle, it could be the Lawn Fawn one, not sure now and then mounted it onto a white card blank.  I thought this was just perfect for my brother as he had an adopted Budgie which he was always moaning about :) 

Well it's a short and sweet post this evening as I have made myself a list of things I want to accomplish today and I still have a few things to complete and it's now 8 pm!  Thanks again for taking the time to drop by, it means so much.
