Wishes Do Come True...

Hello to all my lovely blogging buddies...hope you're having a great week, so far!! Me? I'm so excited and I just can't hide it's my birthday tomorrow!!! Keep your fingers crossed that I get to eat copious amounts of cake and the sun stays shining all day long!

But before I burst with anticipation of the big, I thought I would pop on to share my latest little creation and here it is, hope you like it!
This card was another one that I made using the watercolour technique that I featured in my previous two posts but this time, I overstamped the flowers with one of Tim's quotes, to make that the focal point of the card. I must say that I am loving Jenni Bowlin's ink pads. They are so rich in colour and are an absolute joy to use. I might even treat myself to the whole set because these are some of the very best ink pads I've used.
To complete the card, I made a handmade flower using the Tattered Florals die and some Fired Brick Distress Ink. The paper is from an old paperback book, I think it was Oliver Twist if anyone recognises the text!! lol I added a die cut branch flourish, some vintage ribbon that I hand dyed with some Distress Ink and finally, last but not least...a button!

Thanks for stopping by and looking and I'll see you all tomorrow!
I'll be around as soon as possible to visit all your lovely blogs and creations!
Love Emma

  11. Happy WOYWW anniversary, Emma, but even more important HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Have a wonderful day. I am looking forward to seeing more of your lovely cards on Sunday.

  12. PS Forgot to say thanks for your visit and kind comments. By the way, the reason I have a box of cards for use is not through organisation and forethought. Far from it. It has grown through playing with different things and then deciding that the card I had made for one person does not quite fit the bill for the moment, so it goes in the box. There now, I have given my secret away.

  13. Fabulous! I Love it! Enjoy your day tomorrow. :)x

    I hope you've had an absolutely wonderful day, Emma and done something really special.

    Have a great weekend.
    Hugs Lisax
