I've been whipping up a birthday card for my hubby
who will hitting the big Three-O this weekend,
and I am finally ready to post it.
I have been battling with the photos I've taken
for a while, and have decided to
give them to you unadulterated,
as editing these colours has been a wreck.
Do you like my ho-hum insignia?
Don't laugh... I like it!!
I've been playing with some of the
most fabulous images my blogger buddy Sue
stamped up for me.
I've got intense Tilda curiousities
and a very VERY limited supply.
So she sent me some images to play with,
and I am certainly enjoying them,
as you can see, Thanks Sue!!
So this is for my honey love buns,
he certainly covets pastries,
so I felt I could away with this image
for a MAN'S card if
I used some neutral papers with it.
I've used some delicious My Minds Eye papers,
coloured with watercolour pencils,
added Liquid Pearls (pewter) to the pie tin,
Waterfall stickles to the wings,
distressing in frayed burlap and weathered wood,
also gone around the edges with brushed curdoroy,
a little bit of white Sakura gel pen for highlights,
Basic Grey buttons and fibre,
stash lace and ribbon
(I get to stick lace on there because my
honeysugarlovecakes appreciates a vintage flair)
and the sentiment is from the amazing
Inkadinkado Brenda Walton clear pack.
On the inside, I've added
"To the Apple of my Pie"
Mahahaha, you get it, Pie, not eye, lol.
Yes, I have too much time on my hands...
I have played with Rach's fabulous sketch:
And here's where I've played along:
Just MagnoliaRach's sketch

Pile It OnGood things come in 3's
3 papers, 3 buttons and a birthday
divisable and a multiple of said number, haha.
Thanks for visiting my project.
I hope you'll leave me your thoughts
and pointers and constructive critisms,
you know I am new to the
wonderful world of mouthless stamps...
maybe you have some helpful hints??
Enjoy your week,
