Beardie Bows

Westie Wishes

Hi everyone,

Well another miserable day weather wise, I have just done a second load of dog towels in the washing machine and am fast gathering another pile!!

I have a Birthday card to show today which is for someone who's Birthday is tomorrow (I don't think she looks at my blog so it is safe to post it today).  The person who it is intended for has a Westie so I thought this DigiStamp Boutique image was perfect.

Using one of my 'cut down' hammered white card blanks I have rounded the corners back and front with my WRMK Corner Chomper.  I have then taken a piece of K&Company 'Brenda Walton' design patterned paper from my scraps box (this is very old stash so I would be surprised if it was still available)  cut it to size and again rounded off the bottom corners.  A piece of My Mind's Eye floral patterned paper was used for the border across the middle, this came from my scraps box also (oh what a good girl I've been) and was a free paper pad with Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine ages ago.  Around this I have wrapped a piece of pink organza ribbon from my ribbon scraps box, there was only just enough to make the little bow.  The image which is called 'Mac & Flowers' was printed onto Craftwork Cards Digital Cardstock and coloured with my Copics  it was then mounted onto yet another piece of card from my scraps box which had been cut using a Nestabilities 'Lacey Circle' die and mounted to the base card with 3D adhesive squares.  To finish off a Craftwork Cards sentiment which I have rubbed over with a Dew Drop chalk ink pad in 'Pixie Dust' to tone in with the card and mounted onto a little mat cut with my Stampin' Up Large Oval punch which seems the perfect size and shape for these sentiments.  Finally, I have used three JosyRose nail heads for which I am eternally grateful to Jules for pointing me towards these, they are fabulous and I want loads more … lol!!!!! 

Right that's it for today ~ my photos are marginally better, but I would love them to look bigger on my blog once the post is published ~ I look at other peoples photos and they seem so much nicer than mine, but I can't find a tool on blogger to change the picture size.  If anyone out there knows the trick I would be most eternally grateful .....

Thank you for visiting today.
