Birthday Memories 1st Birthday Card

Hello there and a happy Friday to you. 
Today I am sharing a special card I made for a lovely friend to give to her nephew for his first birthday last weekend. My friend is very musical, in fact it's her career and her passion so I wanted to incorporate this into the card and what better way than the little creatures from the Birthday Memories papers who are playing their musical instruments!
I did get brave and I drew on some music notes, been a while since I did these and I had flashbacks to my GCSE music in 1989 which is probably the last time I had to draw notes!
I used the same fold as I have been sharing all week, and I just LOVED how it turned out with the little creatures creating a birthday march along the card. The sky and grass was achieved by sponging some Whisper White card with the ink pads.
I decorated the back so there was room to write a message for Jamie.
And then I decided to cut out another creature and added the bear to the envelope for a finishing touch! My friend loved the card and Jamie's Mummy couldn't believe I had made it! A good job done I reckon!

Petal Garden for Tuesday Club

Hello and welcome back to my blog today! Today's card is the last in my Graceful Garden series and is a simpler version of the one I have shared over the last 3 blog posts.
As you can see from the photo below this card doesn't have the full foldy party and just has a square on the front piece with a square to write on over the back piece of patterned paper. 
Just love this card, think I might save it for myself for my birthday!
Thanks for reading today, I'll be back with something different on Friday.

Petal Garden for my friend

Hello there and welcome back to my blog today. Today's card is pretty much a replica of yesterdays but with a different sentiment. My lovely friend got taken into hospital and I had to send her a lovely card to cheer her up. It actually arrived on the day she was back home so it was great timing. 
I thought the sentiment was nicer than a Get Well Soon sentiment and I wanted to send a hug so it was perfect for the card.
Don't you just love the colours? Old Olive, Calypso Coral and Pool Party - what a combo!
And here is the card almost laid flat so you can see the full effect of it!
Thank you to those of you who have used my code so far this month. It will be open until the morning of June 30th.
