I used a gate fold card... 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" , scored at 2 1/8" on either side. I found all kinds of bit to use on the panels. I used the card horizontally instead of vertically. The image is a PTI stamp from the Masculine Motifs set, inked in Sepia archival ink. A few co-ordinating dew drops were added to the bottom of the panel.
Really loved one of the cards Nichole Heady did this month for her release so used the sketch and made a few birthday cards.
I set a lovely table. Nothing fancy. A candle and a lovely plate from a friend.
This is the fish I made. Check out Giada de Laurentis' recipe HERE. I didn't have branzino so I used cod fillets which can withstand high heat cooking.
My lovely salad...
Potatoes... very simple... Boil some small red potatoes until fork tender, cool slightly, smash with the palm of your hand and fry in some olive oil, salt and pepper.
Wish my husband could be here to share it with me.
Delicious nonetheless. There is something therapeutic about cooking for yourself.
I added some dew drops to the banner in various places and then attached all the flags to a piece of ribbon with double sided tape.
This is a Tim Holtz inspired tag that I made for a birthday this month. I really just dragged out all my Tim Holtz stamps and played around with what looked best at the time.
Distress inks were added to the tag and then I used the distressor to rough up the tag all the way around.
Some gems and baubles were added and a little wish ticket as well.
I haven't done it yet but will add a piece of cardstock to the back with a Happy Birthday sentiment.
Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping in***
