Happy Birthday my Friend....

Hello Friends

Today is a Very Special Friend's Birthday and whilst I was playing with my new texture paste to make Mr Hettie's card I got out another (unused) steel stencil (not quite as old this time) which I had bought from Homespun Hearts, who are usually at the Quilt Shows.  The lady keeps chook stuff back for me as she knows I will not be able to resist them and this was one such stencil.

I used the same technique as the bee card and then sprinkled glitters before letting them dry.  I was sooooo excited when I made these I nearly got carried away and showed Mr Hettie his design!!  Oops

Once the paste and glitter had dried, I cut the piece of card with my Spellbinders die and some glitter card with the scalloped die (at a push as it is soooo thick!  I edged the teal piece with my bronze pen.  The blue spotty background piece is a Snippet of Boofle paper and stamped with my favourite Hero Arts stamp.  A Stampin Up tag and a banner from my new Tim Holtz die and some ribbon and it was complete.

I now know it is safe to post this on here as the Birthday Girl has opened her card.  I can now take it to the Playground.  Happy Birthday my Dear Friend.  Have a GREAT day! 

Hugs

Hettie
