Well, long time no see! I’ve had a few big trips to the city to see specialist doctors and physios leaving me exhausted for a few days after each one, the doctor has altered my diet again so now off all grains, seeds, nuts, nightshades, dairy and fermented foods, trying to see if I am reacting to natural histamines in foods along with plant proteins that I’ve been off since April.
I did find some time to make a few Christmas cards for my stash and I’m only just finding the time to blog them along with todays card, a birthday card for my niece who turned 12 late last monthfeaturing three of Bugaboo Stamps images– Birthday Bird 2, Birthday Bird 3 and Birthday Bird 4 which I won during their birthday celebrations last year and coloured at some point in time, found them sitting with a bunch of images I have coloured…
I dug into my scraps box and unearthed some brightly coloured card stock pieces which worked well with the colours I had used then hit one of the Sugar ‘N’ Spice paper pads from Spotlight and found a nicely and co-ordinating striped paper, finished the card off with two orange flower brads from my stash, wink of Stella over the cupcakes, shine of the balloons and for fun on all the little birds eyelids. I backed some blue cardstock with double sided adhesive sheets and cut Happy Birthday sentiment with a Lawn Fawn die.
Here is my card:-
