Hello! I’ve not been around in blogland too much recently (apart from Time Out DT posts that is) as I’ve been fighting a virus that’s been a bit of a challenge to shake off. Today, though, is the birthday of one of our sweet friends and I didn’t want to miss wishing her a wonderful day … so this is for Carol (Just Me:C) … have a Very Happy Birthday, my friend … hope it’s a magical one and that the year ahead will be full of marvellous delights! Your card is currently winging it’s way across the ocean …
In homage to Carol‘s fun relationship with Distress Inks, I used them for her card … smooshed some onto my craft mat, sprayed water around and used a panel of watercolour paper to pick up all the colour. Once the panel was dry, it was Shimmer Spritzed it to give it sparkle (you can’t see it here, but it’s very shimmery IRL), I white heat embossed the Mama Elephant sentiment and then added a scattering of sequins and gems. The base card was masked off, I sponged the black border and popped up the watercolour panel over it. Voila!
For those of you who don’t already know Carol (if there is anyone who doesn’t!), you’ll want to … she’s fun, humourous, entertaining and fabulously talented … so do have a meander over to her blog, take your time to absorb all the deliciousness … and enjoy!
I’m linking up Carol’s card to …

Due to my … erm … indisposition, my Feedly list has been rather neglected in recent times … and now it’s very, very, very long. I’m looking forward to seeing all the wonderful inspiration that’s in there over the next few days … and to catching up with what everyone’s been creating!
Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
