Happy Birthday

Good Sunday morning all!  Time for a good celebration card!  I started with a white background and then added a piece of Pixie Powdered card to the lower part of it.  I used mostly Midnight Blue, but added a splash of Emerald Green Pixie Powders to it.  I used the straight die from the Dotty Streamers die set to cut into the top edge of the card.  I cut two round balloons from the Dotty Balloon die set out of Cobalt Blue card and used Cosmic Lacquer on them to give them a shiny appearance.  I cut two of the squiggly balloon strings out of white card and glued them to the balloons.  I added the balloons with foam to the top corner of the card.  Using an extra bit of the pixie powdered card, I cut the Hip Hip Hooray sentiment from it and glued it to the upper corner.  I cut the Noble Happy Birthday die in white and glued the words to the lower portion of the card.  The card was completed with white and Cobalt Blue card mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Morning Sue. Woah, what a windy crazy night nothing to do with my Crohns or supper lol hope everyone is safe. And if it's anyone's birthday here what a beautiful bright happy card for you. I just love the Happy Birthday die Sue it's so valuable either a big and bold or for smaller clean and simple card. The balloons are brilliant too and can be used in so many ways it's hard to know where to start, I could say they are the best gift 'my keeper' has ever treated me to but considering dies are the only choice on my gift list, that wouldn't be fair, so these dies are so useful everyone should get them ☺ have a wonderful day Sue, keep warm and safe everyone xxx

Hi Sue, what a statement, I love the big Happy Birthday and the Hip, Hip Hooray sentiments. They look great with the blue against the white. I looked again for this blue pixie powder in my local craft store but still haven't managed to pick it up lol. Anyway day off, so I'm off to craft. So glad I dont need to venture out in the stormy winds. Stay safe everyone. Hugs Donna x

Hi Sue, from a very windy UK. I hope everyone is OK? Love this card for it's simplicity, great for when you have forgotten to make a card for someone provided you have a suitable background in your stash! Love the dotty border which adds just enough decoration to the card.

Do you understand there's a 12 word sentence you can tell your partner... that will trigger intense emotions of love and impulsive appeal to you deep inside his heart?

That's because hidden in these 12 words is a "secret signal" that fuels a man's impulse to love, worship and guard you with all his heart...

12 Words Will Fuel A Man's Love Impulse

This impulse is so built-in to a man's mind that it will make him work harder than ever before to take care of you.

Matter-of-fact, triggering this influential impulse is absolutely essential to getting the best ever relationship with your man that the second you send your man one of these "Secret Signals"...

...You will immediately find him open his soul and heart for you in such a way he never expressed before and he will perceive you as the one and only woman in the universe who has ever truly understood him.
