Good Morning All

And it’s a dry morning for a change!  There is even a bit of sun today 🙂

This is a card I was asked to make for a colleague of mine, for his wife’s 50th birthday.  He gave me the subject of books as she is an avid reader and told me her favourite colour was blue.  Well, I hunted through my stash but couldn’t really find anything appropriate, so I hit the web and ordered some Magnolia stamps from Sir Stampalot.  Have to say I was very impressed with their service, I received the order extremely quickly 😀

The base card is an 8×8 inch fold back, covered with blue card and some blue flowery paper from the Spice Cake range from Stampin Up.  The central image has been stamped and coloured in with Promarkers and then cut out so that I could sit Tilda on the large pile of books.  The text paper is from Basic Gray and the scalloped circle has been cut using a Marianne die.  The Happy Birthday was done on my trusty Cricut and the bow is made from some lovely lacey ribbon also from Stampin Up.

The pile of books on the right hand side of the card is one stamp, stamped several times and I counted out 50 books to correspond with her age.  These have also been coloured using Promarkers and then cut out.

I managed to find a lovely little poem about books on the web, (a very useful tool) which I printed out and used on the inside.

Anyway that’s all for now, but will be back again soon
