Katy's card

I thought today that I'd better get on and make a card for great neice Katy's birthday next week. I bought a pack of 80 different ribbons from QVC last week and was itching to use some so the first thing I did was print off the spotty paper, chose the spotty ribbon as it went so well with the colour of the paper and went on from there.


Not quite sure where the last week has gone, and I've not really done anything to blog about. Deborah came for a visit and loved her 40th Survival Kit and her birthday card. Digital image was coloured with Brush Strokes used as water colours, except the teddy was done with water colour pencil. Dark burgandy card used for the mats, some pink paper found in stash (which came from an insert in a shop bought birthday card I received many moons ago) and some card candy. The flower has a button centre threaded with some hairy fibre (I'm sure there's a proper name for that!). I'm surprised I never thought to get the Cuttlebug embossing folders out, but I'm happy with it as it is.

While I was making this card Paul was busy making a cake. I love home made fruit cake and have given up making them as his are far superior to mine. I'll just have to go and do a taste test though, he's a bit out of practice and might have lost his touch. Yeah right!!!!!!!!!
