Birthday Wishes

When the North wind blows my internet goes! And it's been blowing for days and getting worse.  Fingers crossed I get to load this post .. .. I gave up on it yesterday.  This little Sarah Kay stamped image was one I coloured a while back but hadn't managed to put a card together, then Mum asked me to make a birthday card for her to send to my sister so this is what I came up with. I've coloured with my Copics to match the Nitwit freebie papers that came in a magazine, ages ago.  I've been browsing the Nitwit shop to try and find them - does anyone know which collection they are in?

Apart from those very pretty papers, I've used SU! card in Sahara Sand and the new Primrose Petals to cut my mats and embellishments.  Most are Marianne dies, apart from the pretty lace mat behind my text - that's a Nellie's Choice die.  I've finished with a lace bow, a button from my box and of course the pearls.

So here's the list of Marianne dies for you:
oval mat around my image is LR0240 with the middle cut out
flowers from LR0129 and LR0130 layered up
skeleton leaves from LR0228
red spiky fronds from LR0192
butterflies from LR0158

Totally Gorjuss are looking for lace this time around, Fun With Shapes and More are asking for 3 patterned papers plus pearls, lace and flowers - check! And at the One Stop Craft blog challenge it's anything goes!

Not sure when I will get around to blogging again as I'm busy helping Jason with the DIY - even if it is just holding bits of wood whilst he saws and hammers then clearing up the debris.  Yesterday was destruction day, so hopefully today we can start to rebuild - who knew moving a door was so complicated!
