Here she is.....again!

Hello, and welcome!

The beautiful spring weather is still with us.......but not for lo-ong!  Supposed to be much cooler, tomorrow, and for the rest of the week, but this IS England, and we can get all four seasons in one day, lol!

Yesterday, I popped round to spend a little time at my friend, Anne's, birthday was one of those big number ones that you can't ignore :D....but I don't think she was at all bothered, because her son, daughter-in-law, and1 year old grandaughter were here, visiting from the States!
Anne is English, married to an American, but her three grown children now live in the States, so you can imagine what a fabulous reunion they've been havin', :D.
And, to make it even more special, Anne's little grandaughter turned 1 year old, a couple of days ago, so yesterday's cdelebration was for them both.....bouncy castles, cupcakes, balloons, birthday cakes....3 of 'em!......and a great time was had by all......includin' me and most of my kids and grandkids....woohooo!

Sooooo........remember the little tag from yesterday's post?
Here it is....again.....transformed into a birthday card for little Paige.........

I seem to be making mostly clean and simple cards, lately....or maybe it's because I was in a hurry to get it done before goin' to the party, lol!

I used a soft pink pearlised base card, and layered the tag onto a piece of green cardstock, which I'd used my pinking scissors on........inked up the edges of the green cardstock, then added a flower diecut with a clear pebble in the middle.....had to first back the pebble with a tiny bit of brown card, because the number 1 wasn't showin' up too well if I left it clear.......

I ran some pink grosgrain ribbon around the green card, and tied a small piece of cream satin ribbon into a knot....added pink peel-off letters to spell the name (haven't used peel-offs for yonks!).......and she was complete!

Might get a bit more time to create, tomorrow.....but who knows? Heehee!

  1. Anne-Marie, I am so glad you are having fun! Love your little girl and I am not a ric rac lover either. Somehow, really works on this card.

  2. How clever to use the tag on the card! You're a genius :)
