"Simple Birthday"

Hello Blog friends, followers and any visitors.  Thank you for popping into my little corner of Blogland, I love having you here.  If you leave me a comment and have an active Blog I can get back to you and return the favour.  If not thank you for calling anyway I appreciate that.
Today I have a very simple card to show you.  Hazel lent me the Die while she was off on holiday.  I have a wee confession to make .... at one point I lost and it started a major "panic".  Anyway while looking for something else I found it ... it was between the two sheets of card I had taken out to make the card.  I had been interrupted, picked everything up, put it to one side.  With the Die being between the sheets of card I could not "see" it ... panic over, BP back to normal!!!  I made a few cards using the Die, it is very effective.
Here is my card for today:-

Base White card from the Papeterie Aberdeen. I must get up there soon for some more.
Pale lilac from stock
Sue Wilson Diagonal Die cut three times
Banner stamped with a Phil Martin Stamp
Hearts ... waste from the Die
How simple is that???

That`s it for today folks
Thank you so much for calling by I really appreciate that you do that
Till next time

  1. I feel your panic Patricia but glad it was just playing hide and seek!! What a pretty card and I can see this die being useful for lots of different styles and occasions. Love the stamped sentiment, might just have to investigate this set!! xx

  2. Oh, big sis you never told me about my die giving you high BP. I remember that happening with one of your dies and it was in the packet all the time but in the back. Love what you have done with it, another use - great! You know me I like to get as much use as possible, Hazel xxx

  3. Morning Patricia, love what you have done with this die, so effective,
    Take care

    A lovely way to use the die, I can just see in a panic, I think we have all done it at some time.

  8. Good Morning Patricia what a pretty card I love this die.
    And I like you can use it for a simple card or a fussy card but they will always look wonderful.

  10. Hello Patricia,
    I "lose" things all the time on my desk. Then when I've stopped looking (it could be days later), I find it!!!
    I love the way you've added just a couple of hearts to compliment the striplet, very pretty.

  29. This is such a pretty card and what a lovely die, think I'll have to add it to my wish list! Hugs Carole Z X

  30. Know just what you mean Patricia. Especially being one of a Hazel's. I am one missing at the moment but at least it is I be of mine. Love the card you have made with the die. I haven't got to connect the last few days but love your flowers and the Man box. Your tool sounds like something I had for sewing. You put carbon on the pattern and ran the tool over the top on the stitching line etc., will have to look for it.

  31. Hi Patricia,I just think this birthday card is gorgeous & very pretty ,I love the Die's as well.
    Hug's Lynda xx
