Happy Birthday

 Hi there everyone, here is a card I made this morning the dies and embossing folder both came from the Magazine Simply Cards from Practical Papercraft International Ltd., I used an old piece of paper from an 8* x 8' paper pad from Cre8tiv which I bought some years ago from K Mart, for the background wallpaper.     The doily was cut with Tim Holtz "Distressed Doily" die, which I have also had for a long time and I shaded it with Distress Ink Pad "Faded Jeans"  and the oddments of paper were from my scrap basket, and I stamped the sentiment with "Faded Jeans" and also shaded the inside embossing folder (my 39th in my personal challenge to use all my embossing folders) and I thought it looked good for the inside of the card, thanks so much for visiting today, Jasann

Cool Birthday

Hi there, here am I again today, having made this Cool Birthday card, the embossing folder is the 38th folder and is in the ice cream set which was in the sale box at the newsagent, I used a dark bronze paper for the background to resemble a waffle and used some pink and brown and grey papers for the ice creams and bowl, and some red for the cherry the biscuits were cut from a Lipton's teabag box, just because I liked the colours on it, and I stamped the sentiment with Archival black ink pad, hope you like this one, I hadn't made one like this before, and thanks so much for visiting today, Jasann

Christmas Bells

Hi there everyone, sorry I was away so long but 3 weeks ago I had  a total right hip replacement, and have only just got back to my craft table, making this card with a dark blue card stock and embossing it with the Darice folder "Music", and I used gold cardstock to cut out the christmas bells, which came from China, and the wreath which was a die from the sale box at the local newsagent, which also came with the Sentiment, I am happy with this and hope you might like it also, and thanks so much for visiting me today, PS this is my 37th embossing folder used in my personal challenge to  use all my embossing folders, Jasann
