Steam comming off my Promarkers, or what do you do when you only have an hour to get a card in the post.

Hello again,

This week has been a bit manic as I discovered that it was my nephews first birthday on Monday and I hadn't even started a card for him. Where did that year go?? To make it worse, boys cards are my nemisis and I tend to take ages on them.  So for help I turned to my favorite Molly Blooms stamp range and Clare Rowlands new magazine Birthday Parade.  I only had an hour to get it into the post so simplified a card shown in there, I was rather pleased with the results, and it just goes to show that I can make a card very quickley if I have to. Still I would rather have a bit more warning next time, so I must get my calender organised, accually I must find my calendar!!!  Thank goodness for facebook..........

I just loved the cupcake with the one candle as it gave it a bit of depth, it was also free with the magazine which made this a very economical card.  I have put the full details of how I put it together on my Birthday cards page so take a look at how I finished it off inside. I think I am into making boys cards now.

Hope it gives you a bit of inspiration, Best wishes Maria
