Sam's birthday card!

Sam is a friend of my daughter, and we've known her since she was 9 - that's 15 years! They grow up so fast!

As you can see, I tried to make a circular easel card without the safety net of using a tutorial, so it's rather flat. The papers are downloads from Bearly Mine Designs and they are gorgeous! The cute Wild Sprout by The Greeting Farm is from Quixotic Paperie here

I'm entering this into the Sketch and Stash Challenge no 39 whose theme is to make a round card. My new stash was the image, not used before, and the digital papers.

I'm also entering it into Anyone for Anya Challenge where the challenge is... Anything Goes!

I used Promarkers, and stamped round the edges with a swirly stamp and stickled - I don't normally do that, but it seemed right this time.

Circles cut with Nesties, of course - what did I do BC (Before Cuttlebug)???

Today is grey, hot and muggy, and even my fingers are sweaty (ewww!). Do I Not Like That. I hope it's better weather tomorrow, as I'm going to London with my daughter to buy books! Woot!

Thanks for looking, and have a good evening.

luv, Mags x

Recipe: The Greeting Farm Maria
