I had these two pieces of card that I'd trimmed off when I made the first two cards and thought why not give it a go and see what happens. The long rectangular shape made me reach for the Background Builders Vines stamp set and as I love the large Happy Birthday stamps - use them all the time - it was an obvious choice for the sentiment.
I'm really smitten with the Vines set, always looks good and always looks different no matter how often I use them. And I'm loving them all over again in purple on this card!
Stamps: Uniko Studio, All Occasion Sentiments #2, Background Builders Vines
Inks: Memento, grape jelly, London fog; Ranger distress, tattered rose; SU, rich razzleberry
And the reason for my quick posts earlier this week - a little to do with preparing for the AAA Cards blog hop on Sunday (8 prizes to win!) and a lot to do with a visit to watch my grandsons' school sports day. This visit involved a long drive, a flight (on the way out delayed for 4 hours) and three days away from my crafting supplies. There was a whole load of scheduling posts and early preparation of cards. But every bit of this was worth it and I've memories to cherish until we see them again - but probably not before Christmas.
Thanks for looking at my blog today, your visit is very much welcomed.
