The first birthday of the year ..... every year it's the same date and person ..... was I ready this year? No! So after a very enjoyable day, art class and retail therapy, I still needed a card!
I am going to use my new stamp, the train. I stamped the image several times and on several different types of paper but really couldn't raise the energy to think ..... yeah!
If you can't win ... cheat!
So I opened up my 'Steampunk Box' and removed a card kit.
Thankfully, Heartfelt Creations included the instructions for making up the card kits ..... unfortunately I didn't have the inks so I had to compromise!
I managed to produce the stencilling on the folded card and remembered to photocopy the white oblong so that I could adhere it to the back inside the frame.
I cut one of the cogs in half and one of the printouts. I grunged the designs and attached to the front oblong.
I added the flowers and leaves but nearly forgot the Birthday sentiment - heigh ho!!
So one card is now signed and delivered!!
