Happy Birthday to Me! (and Phil)


Happy Birthday to Me & Phil!

Well by the time you read this we will be in New Plymouth having a birthday holiday.  As we share the same day - how cool is that! - every second year we go away for a short break to celebrate OUR birthday.  I haven't been to New Plymouth since 1975 so thought it was about time I went back.  I'll try and take some photos while we are away and post them next week.

I had to be sneaky in getting Phil's card made without him seeing it.  As we share the same hobbies room I had to wait until he went out to do some photography so I could have the room to myself!

I always struggle making masculine cards so here is what I made for him.  I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

I cut the large star out of Daffodil Delight and then added Crystal Effects to give it a nice glossy finish.  I had tried to photograph the inside of the card but it wouldn't stand up so I gave up!  I had stamped the 'stars' for the set in Tangerine Tango.

Stamps - Starring You
Cardstock - Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White

Well this will be me until we get home on Sunday.  Hope you have a great weekend.
