Happy Birthday

Hello all,

I thought I would share these really quick and simple cards I have made using some Clearly Besotted goodies and some supplies from my stash.

Clean and simple (and quick!) is totally my style, especially when Henry is running causing the chaos that only a toddler can!  I do have a little confession to make - I stamped all the flowers the night before and cut them out whilst Henry had his nap the next day.  When he woke, he was eating lunch and I was hanging out the washing.  When I came in, he said to me, 'Mama, mama, eat, eat, eat", and I was really proud of him thinking he had eaten all his food.  It was only when I came inside fully that I realised he had reached over the table and was eating my beautiful stamped flowers! Argh! Hopefully you can't see any teeth marks in the pictures...

The flowers are from the Bridal Bouquet stamp set, which is one of my favourite flower stamps.  It's so easy to use and line up, I love it!  I also have used some of my favourite ink colours and they are listed in the 'Supplies Used' list below.

The word dies are also from Clearly Besotted, and I used gold, copper and silver glitter paper from my stash.

Let me know what you think.

I am going to enter these cards in the following challenges and see how I get on:

- Crafting with Dragonflies - Pinktober
- Crafty Friends Challenge - Use your favourite colour
- Little Claire's Designs - Use your favourite stamp
- Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge - CAS design using a large sentiment and tiny stamp
