One of our fab Sponsors is Hobby House  and so I've used one of their gorgeous Elisabeth Bell Toppers, and some of their pretty Patterned Cards for my creation. I made this special card for my good friend Lynn... it was her Birthday a couple of weeks back and so it was lovely to have this theme as inspiration for her card. I also got to try out my new Joy Crafts 'Banners' Die! thank you Laurie.. I really love it! :-)


Image: Hobby House - 'Elisabeth Bell - Summertime'
Patterned Card: Hobby House - Love Me Spot and Spring Hearts and Spring Blossom
Die: Joy Crafts - 'Banners'
Flower: Prima
Buttons: Papermania


I'm really disappointed with the flower in these photos... it has come out really peachy... but in real life it is a lovely dusky pink that matches the pink in the rest of the card... Grrr!! and they say the camera never lies!!! 

I am giving this prize on my blog....

(sorry it's in two photos...  but it is all one prize)


Some lovely Hobby House Toppers and Papers

Adorable birthday card sweetie! Love the fab image and pretty banner with the flowers and the polka dot paper is such a treat, too! Don't worry about your camera, I think we all have the same feeling, you wouldn't want to know the amount of shots I sometimes have to take (and even then I'm still not pleased with the result, lol!)
