Happy Birthday

I made this card for my friend Laura whose birthday is today.
Happy Birthday Laura!

I made this when I thought i had lost my mojo but I was quite happy with it  when I had finished even though it's quite plain.

I used my new 'me to you bear' stamp but thought that Promarkers would be to 'heavy' to colour him with so I just lightly went over him with a grey pencil colour. I'm not great at colouring with pencils so don't look too close!! The sentiment is from a 'me to you' set that came in a lucky bag that I just couldn't resist!
I used my Fiskars ribbon punch which I've not used in forever and put some teeny gems in the gaps between the ribbon to finish off.

Thanks for looking.



  1. Gorgeous and understated Donna. I saw these stamps in the Range, they are fab. Did you buy the Creativity magazine as It had a me to you free bear and small embossing folder on the front?

  2. so sweet! Love how you have used the ribbon!

    Hugs Juls

  4. Hi Donna

    I love the finished look of this - especially the ribbon feature with the gems in the spaces.

    Beautiful colouring of your bear too. He is sooooo sweet.

    Love Jules xx

  5. Hi Donna...hope you're ok :-D Have had a bit of a busy time but finally back! I love your card...doesn't look like your mojo was missing. That ribbon threading is it a punch? I'm sure your friend loved it. xx
