Hero Arts Thank-you Cards

Just a quick post while Jamie is having his morning nap. Wow, I thought last week flew, this one has passed even quicker!

As you know, it was my birthday a few weeks ago. A week after my birthday I had a birthday tea with 7 of my girl friends. I got some lovely little gifts, and of course then had to make some special thank-you cards, to thank my special friends.

I have admired this little birdie stamp from Hero Arts for a while, so I was so happy to finally get it with my birthday stash. As you may know, there are normally 3 birds on the stamp, but the size I needed could only fit 2, so I covered up the smallest little birdie. The sentiment is also by Hero Arts.

I love beige/brown & blue together, it is one of my favourite colour combos. These cards came together so nicely, and I really enjoyed putting them together. I used my Swiss Dots embossing folder and a bit of stitching, which I think always finishes off a card. The ribbon is some I got at a flea market for a bargain, just wish I had bought more!!

I will hopefully post again this weekend. I am busy with a card using a lovely umbrella stamp from Stamp 'n Stuff. I am trying my hand at paper piecing.

Speak to you soon!
