Happy Birthday and Congratulations...

Hello Friends

Last week I had to make two cards in a bit of a hurry, one a Birthday card and the other a Congratulations card.  So I pulled out my favourite Penny Black Stamp, the spare A cards I made the other week, some Snippets, punches and inks.

I stamped the PB and SU stamps with Cobalt Blue Archival ink, blasted them with the the heat gun and coloured the flowers in with the Stormy Sky Distress Marker.  I then trimmed the larger stamping to fit the card, punched the tag, stamped a text stamp and punched the butterfly.

The little word tabs are part of the set I am trying to use up.  Inside I have stamped Happy Birthday and Well Done respectively.

As I have used Snippets I am going to pop this into the Playground.  I want to do a wreckie to see where we are going to put the brazier for roasting chestnuts on!  After the Bonfire Party I need to check on the Elf 'n Safety of the idea.

Didn't have me glasses adjusted proper and thought you wos torking bout something different. Also thought Mrs F was using a spade for sumkin!! We don't want any tramps coming into the park at night asking where the soup kitchen is do we so we had best put it round the back of the potting shed. Therre is a nice bench we can all sit on and eat out nuts.
Nearly forgot. Nice cards Sam.
Hugs Mrs A.
