CAS - Happy Birthday

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope that you have had a good week. This post is being scheduled as when it goes live I will be on my way to the Big Stamping and Scrapbooking show at Ally Pally. This is my favourite show of the year there are so many people there that I admire.

This is my Design Team card for the Fantasy Stampers Challenge  34 - Clean and Simple. I actually found this quite a hard card to make I do have such inky fingers.


There isn't much in the way of instructions. I used just one stamp. The hard bit was keeping ink off the rest of the card. 



The image was stamped with Cobalt Archival and then heat embossed with clear powder. I coloured the balloons with Promarkers. I had some gems that matched the colours of the balloons. 


I hope you have a fantastic weekend. I will post pictures of Ally Pally if I get any good ones. 


I thought I would share a picture of our Magnolia tree. It looks fantastic for about two weeks each year as long as it isn't windy.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
