Birthday Card for a friend

First I should say sorry to all my lovely blogging friends who have been wondering where I have been. I had to have some dental treatment in January which included having some teeth out. It's been a nightmare, pain from the extractions, pain from infections and sockets that just didn't want to heal. All of which lead to the dentist doing more stuff that left me once again feeling like I had been belted in the face with a cricket bat and no craft mojo at all! Anyhow things seem to be on the mend now and I am hoping my mojo is back cuz I have a few projects on the go just now.

A friend had a birthday recently. He and his partner make lovely cards so I tried to make something in a style I hoped he would like. Not my usual style so I am never very sure if my efforts at this kind of card are that good, but I enjoyed making the card and love how crisp and fresh the colours in these papers look. The papers are by ScribbleScrabble and the stamp is from an HOTP set that came in a QVC TSV.


  1. I love it colours are fab WOW!!

    Sorry you've been suffering pleased you're now on th emend and the MOJO has definately returned

  2. Great to have you back, Phree, after all your trials. Those papers look good and I think you've done a great job with them.

  3. So glad to see your back with us Phree but so sorry you have been in so much pain. I do hope everythings sorted now. I'm sure your friends will love this card. The colours go very well together and I love the shape of that topper.
    Looking forward to seeing your creations again.
