This little birthday card was made very quickly, and went together like a dream, no fiddling around, it all just slotted into place. The border punch is one of the new deep ones by the punchmaker of the century - Martha S. I added a panel of script paper, the branch is a Sissix die, and the bird is from a clear set by Inkadinkadoo. Lettering by making memories and american crafts. The brown bordered card was in a set I found on clearance somewhere, they are by Martha Stewart as well, totally blank apart from the border, so perfect for altering
Phew, no more Christmas card posts from me this year, all done and dusted. Does anybody else love making them, but hate writing the messages? I always try to add a personal note, but refuse to go down the route of a computer printed round robin letter. I did try it once, and tore it up, it made me sound so SMUG. Of course, I only dwell on the good things, so all of a sudden, we became Mr and Mrs Perfect, with our charming successful children and impeccably behaved and super-intelligent grandchildren. The reality being that like all families, we have highs and lows, success and disappointments, feasts and famines. So a handwritten scribble has to do, but it does get tedious scribbling the same stuff over and over, but all done now. Hurrah!
