Happy Birthday Helen!

Hello! Wow isn’t it hot here in the UK at the moment! We really aren’t used to weather like this! I hope you are managing to stay cool somehow. We have loads of fabulous Design Team projects to share with you and we kick off the week with a really gorgeous card, made for me (Helen), by the very lovely Jane Tyrrell featuring our stunning hummingbird stamp…

Happy Monday all…. phew what amazing weather we enjoyed over the weekend, it is like being abroad. The temperatures are set to get even higher this week too! I enjoyed some crafting and gardening time… keeping in the shade after lunch as it got so hot.

Today I can finally share a Birthday card I made for someone very special…. no guesses as to who it is….

Yes none other than the lovely Mrs Visible Image aka Helen. Helen celebrated her special day last week. I made an alcohol ink background using lots of pinks and purples on Yupo paper.

I then stamped the fab Hummingbird stamp from the Life is Beautiful stamp set

I stamped out Helen’s name using alphabetical

and also ‘Happy Birthday’ from the Go to Words stamp set

I cut out the letters and words and added thin satin ribbons. I then added them to my card with foam tape for dimension.

Here are some close ups…

Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments. Long may this glorious weather continue… even though I am not sure my garden would agree!

Keep cool and carry on crafting.

Bye for now,
