Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside!

Another friend will celebrate her birthday also while I'm away.
I hope you have a very happy birthday Karen
and perhaps you can "be beside the seaside".

Field Flowers

This is a really simple card made with the 2 step stamp set Field Flowers.
I've stamped the stem and background flower in Basic Black and then stamped the filled in flower using Whisper White ink. A message of sympathy stamped and punched out and layered creates a beautiful and elegant sympathy card but you could use any message, "thinking of you", "get well wishes", "thank you" or even "birthday greetings".
All products SU:
Card stock: Natural Ivory, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Basic Black.
Inks: Basic black, Whisper White.
Accessories: wide oval punch and decorative label punch.

Joy Fold Card - I Dig You

 I was asked to make a card for a 1 year old's birthday.
The Great-Grandma wanted something a bit special.
I borrowed the retired "I Dig You" as I thought the little 
dump truck would be perfect.
I also used some of the retired "Storytime DSP"
for the inside of the card.
I was happy with how the card turned out.
