Daughters Birthday card...

It is my daughter,Holly's,21st birthday on Tuesday,April fools day!!!! So I have made her this card,as she did comment that she liked it as I was colouring it in.
Doesn't time fly?! 21!!!!!! I remember my 21st,Holly was 1 week old!!!!Bless!!!

I made this card with another new Tilda.paper is DCWV from a pad.Initials are Making Memories,I coloured with sakura pen & then glazed.Rest from stash.

Thats my lot for today!!! What makes you think I missed my crafting?!!!

Have a luvly evening & Thanx 4 lookin :o)x


Not my usual style,but fancied having a go,saw it in some mag!!!
I had to scrumple pic after colouring,then smooth out,then rub over with sanding block.It gives an aged,distressed look to image.I also inked all the edges for effect.
I rather like it,my Husband was horrified,haha!!!
I used K&Co Wild Saffron papers again,stazon,timber brown ink pad,all other stuff K&Co (can u tell they are my fave brand!!!)
Thanx 4 lookin :o)x


I have been very creative today,making 4 cards in total!!!
I will have to show the 4th tomorrow as was too dark to take pic when I had finished it.
This card is 1 of the new Tildas,my Hubby calls her Hilda,lol!!!
I used K&CO Wild Saffron paper & grand adhesion button.Bellas of stuff from stash.
