Happy Birthday wishes Val .....

Today is my friend Val's birthday and this is the card I made her. Using the Arianna Blooms again ( I love this Heartfelt set) I stamped the flowers onto pale green parchment and embossed with white WOW powder, the other dies I have used are Tonic Trellis (I used the 'waste' from the front to make my previously posted card) and Joanna sheens Wisteria die for the foliage, banner die S.U. 
Sorry about the awful photograph but it was a very dark and dull day when I took the picture is this was the best of 3...roll on spring....

Yesterday I went to a craft show at Westpoint near Exeter with friends, it was a mixture of crafts and sewing...we were all very good in not buying very much, I did keep to my resolution and not buy any crafty goodies in January but needed  essentials yesterday so I bought two lots of glue, pretty card boxes 50 for £10 from Anna Marie so shared them with a friend, a small stencil, 2 sponges and slightly bigger banner die than the one on the above card and I treated myself to a brooch pennant....
just goes to show I have more than enought crafty stash to use and hopefully  thats all my buying in February too.

Have a good weekend ...

Sounds like you were very restrained at the show Anne. I went to one in Thetford last weekend and always buy my cardstock etc., from Anna Marie, their products are great quality.

A lovely card for your friend and those flowers look so delicate on vellum, must remember to use some of mine.
