Hope you are all well. The weather has turned a bit colder and wetter here today. Still, it did make for a better night's sleep for me last night. I sometimes think I have a little cooker inside me as I rarely feel cold.
Now before I tell you about my card for today I have a bit of exciting news to share with you all. A few weeks ago Mike and Ian from Kraftyhands put out a design team call. I tentatively applied and sent some photos of my creations not really expecting to hear anything. Well on Friday I got an email from them inviting me to join the team. You can imagine it took me all of a few seconds to reply back to them with my acceptance. I am so delighted to have been asked and I look forward to sharing their fab products with you all. Here is a link to their website and also to their blog.
Now for todays card which is a 70th birthday card that I was asked to make.
I wanted something quite clean and uncluttered as it is for a male. I started by cutting two central squares using a Martha Stewart Punch around the page punch that I have. Onto this I mounted the number 70 which I glittered for some sparkle. The sentiment is from a stamp set that I have had for ages. Now I can't tell you where I got the blue background paper from as it has been in my stash for months. This was simply matted onto black and a khaki coloured coredinations card. The corner cutouts that were left from punching the central squares made nice corner embellishments.
Thanks for popping by and for all the lovely comments you leave me. I do read every one and it is much appreciated. Off to my monthly card workshop tonight so apologies if I don't get round to visit many of you.
