I made this card for a fabulous friend … she’s fun, generous, enthusiastic, insightful and supremely creative … she had been and/or is on numerous design teams … and is the owner of Muse and the sparkly new Muse: Christmas Visions. Well, if that didn’t give the game away I don’t know what will (maybe the post title … tee hee!) … it’s for Ardyth over at Maskerade! I had the amazing good fortune of meeting and spending a week with her at the Lake House last year … what a delight! So, Ardyth, my fellow BABE and lovely friend … Happy, Happy Birthday to you … wishing you a wonderful day crammed full of everything that makes you happy … and a year to come chock a block with blessings, love and laughter! This card’s on it’s way to you …
You all know Ardyth, right? If you don’t, you really need to go over for a loooooong visit … you’ll come away inspired, entranced and completely blown away by her designs! Whether you do or don’t know her, though, you can always pop round to wish her a Happy Birthday … or maybe even sing it … she’s very musical!
Here, I stamped a panel with PTI‘s Ombré Builders in more-than-a-rainbow-of-colours (there are nine of them … wonder if the pot of gold will be bigger!!) and then die cut four of the five letters from the Winnie & Walter In A Word:Happy out of the space I’d left at the top. Some more ‘happies’ were cut from white card and one from shiny silver card, I stacked them together and slotted them into the die cut space so the ‘h’ was hanging off the edge. The rainbow panel was matted onto black (also die cut so the white card base could be seen through the word), I stamped the birthday from Annabelle Stamps (no longer operating), added lashings of Wink of Stella to the rainbow and popped the panel up on foam dots on the base.
Ardyth‘s card is heading to …
Seize The Birthday – Anything Goes
Simply Create Too – Keep It Simple
SSS Wednesday – Anything Goes
SSS Work It Wednesday – Rainbow
Finally today, an apology … life’s been a bit crazy lately and the time I usually have available to spend in blogland has been gobbled up by the time eating monster (who, considering his munch rate, likely has a bad case of indigestion by now). So I’m behind with my visits and way behind with my emails … sorry I’ve not been around much! Looking forward to spending some quiet time over the next few days doing some catching up, seeing what’s been going on … and being inspired! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita:)
