Birthday Celebrations

I just managed to sneak in with my entry for this month’s Art By Mi Ran progressive challenge on Facebook. It does seem to be the story of my life at the moment – going to the wire, usually more by accident than design! Still I did get there in the end!

Materials used:

Art By Miran digi stamp – Birthday Betty (I think it is the reserved listing, but best to check on Facebook Page)
Copic X-Press It blending card
red and black card
Little B handwritten script dies
glitter gel pens
corner rounder punch
white A5 card blank

I really enjoyed colouring in this one, especially as it gave me the opportunity to get out my glittery gel pens for the first time in ages. A bit of glitter makes all the difference!

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
