Happy Birthday Kath

Slap my wrists again, I've been a very naughty blogger and haven't blogged in a whole week, and I don't even know why.... apart from the fact that I've not done any crafting to blog about.
Anyway, never mind that, it's our local celebrity, and my very good friend, Kath's birthday today - she's 21 :)
So by the time you read this I'll have been over with the card I made for her and a wee pressie.
so here's the totally Kath-inspired card that I made for her, using some of her favourite things... remember to pop over and wish her a happy birthday.



The butterflies are part of one of the new Hero Arts/Sizzix stamp/die combos, coloured with flexmarkers. I've also used Poinsettia Circle and Envelope Pattern stamps which are also Hero Arts. Do you like the shade of green on the poinsettia circle, envelope pattern background and the seam binding? well it's the brand new Evergreen Bough from the Winter limited edition Tim Holtz distress inks - isn't it gorgeous? The greeting is PI and the seam binding and white cardstock are from The Papeterie.

The Evergreen Bough looks amazing - especially with the blues & yellows of those buterflies. Your large bow is quite delightful & I love how it gives a much darker shade of the ink when applied to the seam binding.

Just wanted to say Did you enjoy working on the Hotshot Craft stand at SECC?. I do all Sarah's samples and demo at a lot of the shows for her but I don't do Scotland. I have been a follower of yours for a long time but don't usually comment ( naughty me!)and was a GDT for Passion for Promarkers some time ago. Love all the things you do

Those butterflies are gorgeous Debbi. Jenny has posted a few cards made using this set on her blog today which were her demo cards at Elgin last week. Having seen this set used in different colourways now it's definitely going on my Christmas wish list. Lucky Kath to have received this one.
