BlueBird Birthday

This is a birthday card that I made last year for my mum. She loves the colour blue if that wasn't obvious.

This was a large 8 x 8 card that I made from 2 sheets of Baja Breeze Cardstock. I used quite a few stamp sets for this Papaya Collage, Nature Walk, Mixed Bunch + Matching Punch and the Vintage Vogue Roller. All of these were stamped in Baja Breeze or Marina Mist Ink. I also used the Victoria Crochet Trim and a Doily from my stash. The frame from Papaya Collage was stamped and embossed with clear powder onto Marina Mist Card stock and a Very Vanilla Stamped layer added behind. The doily was spritzed with various shades of blue marker and the Vanilla Shimmer smooch spray. Finally I added a few pearls for extra decoration.

My Stepson Is a Genius

Okay so after many attempts at trying to get the photos off my camera phone downloading the software that came with my phone numerous times only to find that windows 7 stops it from working, I was ready to quit the whole thing when......

My wonderful stepson Miles looked at my phone and pointed out that it had a slot for a memory card - meaning I could just plug in a micro sd card and copy my pictures. Et Voila! Pictures I can upload.

This card was made over a year ago and is only seeing the light of blogland now. Now hopefully I can get back to posting on regular basis.

Card uses Whisper White CS, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry and Perfect Plum Inks along with Flutterby Stamp and a now retired greeting.

Thanks for stopping by
