Birthday Card

Saw a youtube video of Rachelo113 on youtube for a halloween inspired slider card and got inspired. I had to make a card for a friend for her birthday and really wanted to get durty so just went for it.
I used the new Tim Holtz Holiday Stack *Thanks Louise I LOVE it! and stamped and gessoed it and of course stickles. Trying to make a card for a birthday this time of year is very hard not to make it festive themed but I'm sure it's horrible having a birthday so close to christmas! The lock is one I made with Anne out of clay from a Tim Holtz mould *Anne we have to get together and make aload more of them, I wont make them by myself!
Instead of stamping happy birthday I tore a page from the dictionary for B and gessoed around everything except birthday and put it on a ----yokie, cant remember the name of those little bits of plastic*mummy brain know what I'm on about!

Tag of Christmas

Ok so obviously I don't have enough time to play along with Tim's tags but had a go with Number 1 today. Not the same at all but it just inspired me :) I love how it turned out and it jingles, could it get any better!
