Happy Birthday


Hello and welcome back!  I'm sure that you expected to see a "Happy Birthday" among the new Mini Expressions die range!  I wouldn't want to disappoint, now would I! LOL  This is probably going to be a much reached for sentiment if you are anything like me!  It seems that it is always a never ending battle to keep up with the monthly birthday cards!  Again, this one has been designed so that the two words are independent of each other, so it is entirely your choice how to use them in your cards and projects.  Side by side, up and down or even offset them if you like.  It is all about having that versatility that makes die so valuable in our crafting.  Well we have come to the end of today's post and there is only one more day to come.  It kicks off at the usual 6am here.  All for now, Sue x

I love how you've used your Christmas background die for this midnight panorama card. It's beautiful.

Would you consider doing a pixie powder tutorial for us, as I don't seem to achieve the artistry with them, that you do?

Also, thank you for the Happy Birthday request. You fulfilled that in three hours, which is totally brilliant! he he

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a lovely card and the essential sentiment die. I do have one but yours is in a much nicer font and it will be good to be able to vary styles, definitely on my 'must have' list. The City Skyline scene looks so realistic against the night sky. Looking forward to tomorrow and hopefully some Finishing Touches which are always my favourites.

Hello Sue, a great Happy Birthday die set, love the font, and I always try to make sure that birthday cards don't end up with the same font as the previous year, so a different one to add to the collection is always good. Your card is lovely, the city scape die and that background are brilliant. Bx
