My OH's Birthday Card

I have been so busy over the past few days making loads of birthday cards, ATC's, a bookmark, a card for the Crafts Beautiful swaps that I had almost forgotten my OH's birthday which is tomorrow ! In all honesty, I had no inspiration for his card at all that was until my new stamps arrived from Texas this morning ! I ordered the Hero Arts Decorative Birds set, the Hero Arts Sparkle Clear Hello Birdie and Hero Arts Trees, Birds and Messages and Hero Arts Sweet Bird all for about £17 which included the P&P. They took exactly a week to get to me. I was so impressed.

This is what I created for him. I do hope he likes it. I was put off somewhat when Ski said "Oh Mum, its so old days !" How does she know ? She's only 6 !

I used to make this card :

Hero Arts stamps as listed above (not all of them though !) and a Hero Arts stamp for the sentiment

Basic Grey Two Scoops paper

Scraps of paper for the squirrel and birds

Maya Road ribbon "Laughter"

Watercolour pencils and Tim Holtz "Faded Jeans" distress ink for painting.

Brads are Papermania.


  1. Wow fab card, it is brill :-)

    Are you going to share this fab sounding bargain Texas store then?


  2. Oh Jules you beat me to it, I was just going to ask that!
    Those stamps are gorgeous, I'm sure they would "accidently" fall into my shopping cart if I knew where to go. ;-)

  3. this is stunning Jo, well done! your OH will love it! Hope he has a wonderful birthday tomorrow! x
