I decided I liked one of the layouts in the last lot of cards I uploaded, so I thought I'd do a couple more variations of it. I tried to emboss the first 'Happy Birthday' but it didn't work and I got completely messy, with glittery embossing powder all over the place. I love the effect of embossing but how do people do it without getting in a mess?! I mostly struggle to get all the remaining powder off the card before embossing it, so in the end it just looks messy. And then I went and dropped my Versamark pad in the embossing powder, so I don't think I can use it again arghhh! That'll teach me to try something different! Anyway I ended up just stamping it in the end...

I'm back!

It's been so long since I blogged that I can barely remember how to do it. I have gotten very lazy with it, I haven't posted for over a year but I still read everybody elses blogs and love browsing for inspiration :-)

So I will upload a few of my latest cards. I won't write down all the materials I used because it can get a bit tedious but if you'd like to know, just leave a comment. A special mention should go to Birds Blog though, as I have used a couple of her free digital images on these cards :-)
