daughter's birthday card
A bithday card for our dear daughter, Louise, who has her birthday today. I can't believe our baby girl is thirty-eight!! Where have all those years gone?
This image is "Shy Willow" and they are from an old stamp set by Elizabeth Bell for Whiff of Joy, (also strawberries and sentiment). I'm quite fond of the red and orange combination and have used it quite a lot in the past. The papers are from my stash, the image and strawberries are coloured with copic markers, and the flowers are a mix of WOC and Prima. The leaves are punched with a Nellie's paper punch, and are much closer in colour to Willow's apron irl, than it appears on the photo.
We're off to sunny Portugal tomorrow, so no more cards posted for about ten days. We can only take one case as we're flying Easyjet, and we can't afford the second mortgage it would need to take an extra case or the cost of excess baggage. Only 20 kilos too, so a very mean allowance! No more bringing back lots of goodies from the market. Sigh!!
I always appreciate it if you leave me a comment, and I can then visit your blog too! Many thanks for coming to call. xx Jill B
