Strawberry Birthday card

Today is my Grandmother's 93rd birthday! I wanted to make her a special card to celebrate her birthday, but not too fussy because it had to go in the post!

Hey there little lady card

After the loss of my step brother I have been restless and found solace in some papercrafting.

Birthday card

One of my nieces is 4 this month, so I made her this card. I hope she likes it! I used a white square basecard. The flower paper is from the Dovecraft set 'Tea Party', that I just can't get enough of at the moment! I ripped the edges with a metal ruler to get… Continue reading Birthday card
