Mixed Bunch Birthday

My apologies for being AWOL again! The saga still continues with Dad and, added to that, I've had a streaming cold for 10 days which doesn't seem to want to go - I think I must be looking after it too well :0) Hence not too much crafting getting done at the moment. However it is my sister's birthday today and this is a card I made for my Mum to give to her. I used a couple of the stamps from Mixed Bunch, which was available in the Summer Mini, along with the co-ordinating Blossom Punch both of which, I can tell you, will be making a reappearance in the brand new annual catalogue available from 1st October. I used one of the new In Colours, Summer Starfruit, which was stamped off to get some paler images. The sentiment is part of a stamp in the Happiest Birthday Wishes Hostess set, coloured with a marker and teamed with anotehr stamp from For my Family and punched with the Extra Large Oval Punch. A strip of cardstock punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch was added across the centre of the card, the central punched flower was added with dimensionals and Basic Pearls finished the card. I also added a bit of stamping to the envelope by using a post-it note as a mask.
Hope to be back soon, have a lovely weekend x


  1. Bless you Margaret - you're not having a good time of it at the moment, yet you still managed to make a beautiful handmade card for your sister which I am sure she will love. Hope your cold is better soon. Gill x

  2. Hi Margaret, I love the centre of your flower with the graduated pearls and how you've combined the sentiment. SUmmer Starfruit looks lovely here. I'm still trying to warm to the new colours! x

  3. What a beautiful card Margaret in that gorgeous colour - I'm in love with it! I'm sure your sister was delighted to receive it and I wouldn't be surprised if she didn't get another lovely handmade creation from you! Take care of yourself and I hope that horrible cold goes away soon. Hugs, Vicky x

  4. Sorry to hear about your dad Margaret. I hope he, and you, are on the mend soon.

    I love the colour of the ink on this card and it's such a pretty stamp set too.


Thank you for stopping by to leave me a comment. They make me happy!
