Better late than never....

Sadly, this seems to be a phrase occurring more and more in my life when it comes to sending out birthday cards. I seem to spend far too much time playing Words with Friends and not enough time making cards (and blogging, for that matter!).
Tonight's card (or should I say "this month's card") was made (late) for my friend's daughter - her first birthday was a couple of weeks ago. Oh ok, I confess, it was 31st May, so it's really late. She's one year old, she's not going to know! She'll probably just eat the card anyway.
Anyway, back to reality - the digi was a freebie and it escapes me as to who drew it, I'm tempted to say it's bu Dustin Pike, but really it could be from anywhere so don't quote me on that!
Coloured in with my incredibly large collection of Promarkers (I really didn't buy all those markers, Dear, honestly.....) and mounted up with some freebie papers from one the the craft magazines from last year, the bunting included - it was a background paper so I just cut it out, and mounted it on 3D foam.
Just the one challenge today, and that's OSAAT - Use a Digi

See you in August! :D


  1. She's going to love getting a card - imagine having a new picture to look at :o)

  2. wonderful card claire...and cool birthdate that little girl has ;) you did a great job!!!

  3. Thankyou for sharing your lovely creation at One Stitch at a Time. This is perfect for our Use a Digi theme. Good luck with the Challenge. Judy x DT

  4. Doubtful mother would let her eat it. Alcohol content of Promarkers wouldn't be good for a lass of her age. The card on the other hand, something to be kept for her lifetime.

  5. such a cute image and I love the bunting you've created. Thank you for joining us at OSAAT. Jennie DT.
