A Birthday & A Thank You

First up I have a birthday card to show you which I made for Carol, my Chrysalis forum buddy.

First week of the year and Im already feeling fresh & ready so it was reflected in the colour scheme of this card. Papers are BG Sultry. I used Xcut shape cutters & Papermania Urban stamps teamed with zesty bright colours and naturally a clock image along with my favourite best friend the Secret Garden embossing folder to give a girly edge. Clcok is Heidi Swapp black embossed over the stamped image which was stamped in Bundled Sage distress ink.

Next is a Thank You card for my sister for all the lovely presents she gave me for Christmas.

This was made with the same girly theme but Stormy Sky distress ink for the big label. My sister is very fond of wildlife & feeds the birds so I thought this blue tit image perfect.
Other news, I am going back to France with my sister this year :0) :0)
Back to La Marchaderie, St Mathieu for a whole week in September! :0)

Two gorgeous cards Paula (especially mine! lol) I've always loved that Sultry paper. Your sister's card is beautifully put together too.
