Happy Birthday Darnell!!!

Hello everyone and a very warm welcome to Jo of My Crafting Corner who is joining us as a new follower this week. Jo is on several design teams and shares lots of crafts including cards, jewelry and home decor, so a visit to her blog will leave you with lots of inspiration.

I'm sorry I've not been round  for a while but we went away last week and although I scheduled a few posts while I was away, I didn't get round to visiting. We had a lovely time in Northumberland and Scotland, and the weather was very kind to us, but  I was really pleased to get back into my craft room today to make birthday card for my bloggy friend Darnell. I'm really sorry Darnell but my real card will be late arriving because of my holiday but I hope this one will tide you over until then.



Darnell will be pleased that I inked up some NBUS for this card - Summer Sweetness from Papertrey Ink. I think you call these popsicles in the US but to us Brits they will always be ice lollies, and I gave Darnell 3 to keep her cool in the hot summer sun. I cut the panel with one of the Custom Dies from Avery Elle (NBUS)  and embossed the Paper Smooches Happy Birthday sentiment with white EP.

I'd like to enter this into the

  1. How adorable and refreshing is your card.Popsicles or ice lollies...they are all great for a hot day like I'm having today (closing in on 100 degrees. It hasn't made it yet, but the high 90's and we are getting there. I love reading the differences in our words.
