As time goes by .....

...... yes, I know I haven't been posting much recently and I really don't have any particular excuse except to say Mr Mojo seems to have gone on long service leave and left me in the lurch!  That's not to say I don't look at what everyone is creating and wishing I was as clever as them - and, yes I know, everyone has their own talents including me!   I've even ordered new stamps and am yet to play with them and now Stampotique have just released new designs as well - heeeelp!!!

Anyhow, I needed to make a couple of birthday cards this week and remarkably remembered to take photos of both the front and insides before I wrote in them.

You may recognise the cloud paper from the bookmarks I recently made for a swap.  There was just enough left for this birthday card and for something a little different, I made it into 3 panels.

"Romek" was stamped directly onto the cloud paper and again onto white cardstock. I fussy cut around the balloons and "Romek", coloured them with Distress Markers and glued them directly over the first stamped image.

The sentiment is made using Tim Holtz alphabet stickers.

The inside is stamped using "Enjoy Today".  Both stamps are from Stampotique.

I was pretty chuffed with how this card turned out and hope the recipient enjoyed finding it in the mail!

I'm not making any promises but I'm hoping you'll see this blog updated more regularly!!

Happy Crafting!
