June Birthdays

Hello!

Boy have I been busy ... DH and I are taking off again in a little over 10 days ... just a 5 day break but the things I have to do before then have really kept me holed up in my room.
I have 9 birthdays to accommodate this month plus 1 retirement and 1 anniversary and though I have many cards in my collection ... there were still some to make ... I can never find the appropriate one for certain people ...
Does that happen to you? You make loads of them and then none seem right?

Anyway, with that, my DT work and the projects for Thursday club ... Well, I've missed the gorgeous sunshine we've had these past few days ...

Here's one of my recent birthday cards for a friend


I bought a new balloon Die & stamp set by Lil'inker Designs ... I figured that they would always be useful when I'm pushed for time ... The paint splat stamps have been one of my best buys ever! 


... and I discovered that pretty linen cardstock in our Home Bargains shop ... It's a lovely weight and it's not expensive ... 


... unlike the postage ... I'm off to the Post Office shortly and I just know it will cost a fortune ... some of my cards are going overseas

Tomorrow I have a special birthday card to share ... I hope you can stop by

Wishing you a lovely day

~ Ros ~

Have a great time where ever you get to.
I am off down to London then off again up to Southport soon.
Travelling is fun, but tiring, don't you think?

This is lovely! Like those balloons! Oh and I know just what you mean about the right card for the right person. I always land up having to make one specially...

Charlene said...

What a pretty card! I really love those balloons! Have a great trip!

That is one fun card, your friend will love it!
Although I make tons of cards but I "clear" them out when I get a chance, like sending a box to the schools at work at, or to someone who order cards from me, I just give them extra in the package. So ya, when it comes to someone's birthday or other occasion, I usually have to make them again. : )

Love the card and I hope you have a great break.

Fun, fun balloons and splats! I have the same problem with my card gifting, always making a new fresh card to match with the unique people in our lives.
I hope that you have a wonderful holiday...end of the month!

I can understand why you like the paint splat stamps so much. They look great on everything! I really like that balloon set and your textured linen paper. Great card Ros! Hugs!
