For my friend…

I have made this on behalf of our walking/book club group of friends. One of our lovely friends is having a birthday this week. We will be celebrating by going to lunch, a spot of retail therapy and discussing our latest read (Me before You – Jojo Moyne). Unfortunately our dogs will be left out this week! I am sure they will cope – although mine cries when she misses her normal walk with “her” friends. I don’t know how she knows it is dog friend walking day, but if we don’t go she sits at the back door crying. Any way I am off track. The lovely friend who I meet at playgroup with our youngest kiddos and who introduced me to the rest of the group is having a birthday this week.

One of the group has bought a joint gift and I have made this card. The dog in the cart was the most like a Jack Russel stamp I had (she has a jack russel) and my friend loves gardening. Doesn’t miss the annual flower and garden show so this was the perfect image for her.


I used a number of markers from SU, Tim Holtz, Zig and Marvy Le Plume to water colour my SU image. I sponged the edges with SU Bashful Blue before matting on to black cardstock. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Market Street Stamps Simply Salutations stamped onto a SU Sizzlits Lots of tags label die the whole panel is popped up with foam tape. The card front is SU DSP Cheerful Treat mounted again onto black cardstock with white ribbon from my stash added before fixing to card base. The final touch is felt flowers cut with MFT rolled flower die with a pearl centre.

I am pretty sure she is going to love it.

I am going to link this up to the following challenges
