Birthday Wishes

Hello Everyone
Squeezing in a quick post, prior to my regular DT post for That’s Crafty on Sunday.
There is no tale to share other than this card was made for a friend who celebrated her birthday last month.  I wanted a card that was feminine with a touch of whimsy!  The whimsy appears in the form of the Character Constructions stamps I used.  Now you might not associate me with Character Constructions stamps but it was either my very first blog post, or thereabouts, in December 2009, which actually featured Character Constructions stamps and then through connections with one of my first DTs, The Altered Element, I would at times receive Character Constructions stamps to play with.  In the near future I hope to be sharing more Character Constructions artwork as it has been the biggest surprise, a complete bolt out of the blue, to know I will be designing with those stamps!  I still might have reservations about Facebook but I am in no doubt that if it wasn’t for Facebook, the lovely Catherine Moore would not have learnt that I used her stamps.

    Hi, Lynne…..just catching up with all your blogs. What a gorgeous b’day card! I love Catherine’s stamps! (I was actually privileged to meet her in 2011). She is at the top of my list of stamp designers. The lace is exquisite and perfect for this lady. I’m sure your friend is beyond thrilled with this lovely creation. The book text and lace give her a special touch of vintage. Keep bring us such wonderful works of inspiration! Cheers! inkybru xx
