This year seems to be one of big birthdays- My mum is 65 in a couple of months and myself, my other half and my best friend are all hitting 40! I'm the youngest of the three of us - my friend and partner are both 'celebrating' this week (spooky my other half and best friend of 25yrs were born in the same week!). Needless to say my weekend has been focused on creating cards for them and this is the one I've made my friend. She's a bit of a rock chick and so I've used a recently purchased (from E-Bay, is anyone else addicted?) set of stamps from Inkadinkadoo and my fav distress inks in milled Lavender, Dusty Concorde and Pumice Stone. I coloured with Milled Lavender first, then clear embossed the stars to create a resist before adding the other colours and stamping with Hero Arts dots. My trusty Tattered Florals die provided the feminine touch and a computer generated message finished off.
The guitar is embossed with black glitter EP - (you can see it if you click to enlarge the pic), and for the other images I've used Opaque Pewter by Stamp 'N' Stuff which is a gogeous EP for distressed looks but one I tend to forget about. I made this card purely based on what my friend would like but it does happen to fit a couple of challenges by coincidence so I thought why not...over it goes to -
Now I must dive over to Facebook to remove the Network Blogs post before my friend sees this!! And I better think about what I'm going to make for the Other Half - not so easy...Men are so difficult (and tricky to make cards for too!!)
Thanks for visiting - Enjoy what's left of the weekend....Esther xx
