Belated Happy Birthday to Darnell

Happy Birthday to Darnell for yesterday!  Lots of you will have the awesome pleasure of visiting Darnell's fabulous Blog - she is such a lovely lady and friend!  Here is the card I sent which hopefully made it across to Darnell in time for her birthday!

I masked the panel off with tape then applied Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distess Inks then spritzed with pearl Glimmer Mist.  I then used black Versafine to stamp these fab little images from Dee's Flowers and Frames by Stamplorations. After I removed the masking tape, I stamped the sentiment (I can't remember the make) then added splatters of the watered down Distress Inks and mounted the panel on a purple base card.  I really hope Darnell likes it!  She makes the most awesome cards!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Penny Black and More Challenge - Anything Goes with a Stamp
Stamplorations Third Birthday - Party/Celebration/Birthday inspired by mood board (mine is birthday and I think my flowers and leaves could be sprinkles on the top of the cakes in the picture. - in my head anyway!!! There are splatters in the mood board too!)
Stamplorations Never Ending Challenge - Anything Goes

3rd BIRTHDAY Blog Hop & Linky Party!

This is a bit of a short blog post.  I will try and do another in the next few days.  Sorry I haven't been around much.  In July I have a few things going on, including meeting Darnell on her visit to the UK - that is the absolute highlight for me!  But it all means I have to take things very easy to manage everything so I apologise for my very infrequent visits and posts.  I will do my best though.  I went to the Newbury craft show yesterday with my friend Julie and had a fab time.  I am pretty shattered today so apologise for any mistakes in this post or if it doesn't make sense.  Sorry Darnell it is late!

I am off to bed know so goodnight and take care and thank you for your visit and continued, very valued, support! xxx

Chris, your card for our wonderful Darnell is beautiful, I am sure she will treasure it. I too am so excited about Darnell's visit, she is one brave lady for braving our horrible weather (fingers crossed it improves before she gets here!!). Please do rest up so that you can enjoy Darnell's visit. I look forward to catch up soon too! Big hugs, Anne xxx
