Have you got any chocolate left or did you guzzle it all yesterday? I've been trying to lose some weight but I allowed myself a couple of days off and now I must get back to the straight and narrow. One way of keeping my hands away from the goodies is to get crafting so it is great that today is time for the PTI Blog Hop.
I stamped kraft card with one of the Twinkle background stamps in cream ink and then matted it onto fine linen card before sticking it onto a cream card base (the stars look a little like dots here but if you click on the picture you get a better view). I then cut some banner pieces using the Banner Builder dies out of the same card and inked the edges before sticking them down with foam squares. The letters were cut from brown card with some Sizzix dies. I then cut a Mat Stack 3 die from fine linen card and used part of a stamp from the 2009 Holiday Tag Collection, stamped in brown at the top and a sentiment from Signature Greetings at the bottom. The central 'birthday' strip was stamped in cream on brown card and came from Big Birthday Wishes, and I cut two little holes in the strip and threaded some raffia through and secured it to the card with some square vintage brads from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great time hopping along to all the other participants in this months blog hop.
