My Mother had her birthday last month and my maternal Grandma asked me to make a card for my Mum that she could give her. She asked the card to be "extra special" and to have golden lettering and numbers on it. This is the card I came up with but I have to say I'm not sure I'm 100% happy with it, although my Grandma and my Mum both loved the card which, of course, is the most important thing. The rubber stamp I used is Casual by Penny Black, I coloured the stamp itself with Impress markers, misted it with some water and stamped it on aquarelle paper which I then die cut with a Tim Holtz die (Styled Labels). I have received the pretty paper I used on the background as a gift (thank you! ;) ). In addition to that, there are just some pink cardstock (I rounded its corner with a Corner Chomper), some pretty lace, a pin that I made and some stickers for sentiment ('Congrats') and numbers.
Ajattelin tähän loppuun vielä hieman mainostaa, sillä kaksi (blogi)ystävääni on avannut pienimuotoisen kaupan netissä (molemmat siis omansa). Kissinia Irlannista on avannut Etsy-kaupan, jossa kannattaa käydä pyörähtämässä, myynnissä tällä hetkellä on ihania pupusia. Skotlannissa taas Junie on avannut oman kynttilänettikaupan, jossa hän myy itse koristelemiaan kynttilöitä. Kannattaapi käydä sielläkin kurkkailemassa.
I thought I'd do some promoting here before I go :) Two dear (bloggy) friends of mine have both opened their own little online shops recently and I think they're both worth visiting. Kissinia in Ireland opened her very own Etsy shop a few days ago selling at the moment some really cute Funny Bunnies. There's more to come, too, so make sure you pop by her Etsy shop! Over in Scotland Junie has opened her own website selling some lovely candles she has decorated herself. The candles are distinctly Scottish and so cute! Pop by Candle-icious as well!
