Bev's Birthday!

Today it is Bev at Happy Dance Blog's birthday!  Yo, Happy Birthday Bev!  Darnell is hosting a blog party and Ardyth has the Linky.  Thank you ladies!

I love this stamp!  Its Penny Black, Tweet Wishes.  I stamped it with black Versafine and embossed with clear powder.  Coloured with Promarkers.  Cut out the image with a Spellbinders die and inked through with a Distress Ink.  Added the sentiment and I was done!

Sorry this is a quick post, struggling with Hubby's hospital appointments etc. at the moment.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

A Little Bit Crafty - Distress it - I have used Distress Ink so I hope it qualifies!
Scrapology - Anything Goes.

Please visit all the blogs mentioned in this post if you have the time, you will see some awesome work!

Thank you so much for visiting me.  I absolutely love it when you do!  Take care.  Christine xxx

That's a new PB stamp to me, Christine, and I love it! You have showcased it brilliantly and I'm sure the birthday girl will love it! Thank you so much for joining the party for Bev!!

On a more personal note, I'm sorry to hear that Darren is in the hospital, unless it's a good thing because it means they are addressing things. Please send me an email when you get a chance. I still have you both in my prayers. Hugs, Darnell

Thank you Chris for taking the time to make this lovely card for my birthday when you have so much going on in your life right now. I can totally relate to hubbies and hospitals! You both are in my prayers. This is a beautiful card. Love the lacy frame and your coloring is phenomenal. Really a pretty stamp!

What a gorgeous card. That fancy frame from the die really mimics the sweeping flourish of the branch.
