Superduper Birthday

Superduper Birthday (3)_thumb

Happy Monday everyone! I’ve stopped for a quick cuppa before I pop out to do the school walk and I thought I would share the Birthday Card I made for my Mum-in-Law, now it has been given to the recipient.

I am trying to create some different card styles and as most of makes have a coloured image I thought I would put the markers away and dig out my Scan’n’Cut.

For this make I’ve used papers from the fabulous Serenity Fairy Wishes Download Bundle:

The printed sentiment is made from a mix of sentiments from other Polkadoodles kits.

And the letters and letter mats have been cut on the Scan’n’Cut.

Sometimes (read quite a lot) I get carried away colouring in images and haven’t actually got a card planned for them. This as exactly what happened with the super sweet Wryn’s Texting:

I’ve popped her in a little frame as she looks like she’s about to take a selfie.
