It was my goddaughter's birthday on Friday and this is the card I made her. The papers are from the Sweet Shoppe and the image is Chatty Cathy from Stamping Bella. Quite a few things went wrong when I was making this card. I made a mistake when I was sticking the letters on for her name and the paper tore when I removed it but I think I made a good recovery and that know one would ever know if I didn't tell them! Made a matching envelope too.


I made this next card for my goddaughter's sister whose birthday is on Tuesday. I thought I'd experiment with a more simple style than usual, the layout is adapted from a scrapbook template I saw. The papers and doodle are by Mindy Terasawa at Designer Digitals and I used Chatty Cathy again cos they're both chatty kinda gals.

I wish you could post more often Julie, your cards are always so amazing! I'm a big fan of these images so it's great to see them on your cards. They are both fab but I have to say I'm lovin the second one simply because it's a bit different, really catches your eye! xx
