A Card for Scrapbooks Etc. Blog

Last week Valerie asked if I could do a card for a guest post she publishes on the Scrapbooks Etc. blog once a month. Just like all Valerie's other sketches, this once was fun and easy to work with.

I slightly angled the label/tag, but furthermore stuck to the sketch all the way. Here's my card:

Inspired by some of Ingrid's cards lately, I chose to use October Afternoon's, Modern Homemaker papers. Instead of the gazzilion of stamps that I have my collection, I used a font I purchased recently as my sentiment. Totally love this font.

You can find the sketch and other designs on the Scrapbooks Etc. blog.

Yesterday one of my good Dutch Nike friends celebrated her birthday. She's the baby of our group of seven friends. We now have all reached the milestone of 40!

This card was inspired by Dawn McVey. When I started making the card, I'd kind of forgotten it was her 40th, so I intended to put something else in the centre of the circle, but than thought I could only really put the number 40 there. The numbers dies are from Papertrey Ink and the patterned papers are from SEI.

Happy Thursday! The weekend is near.

Great cards as always! I keep reminding myself that I need to make more cards, because usually I need one when it's most inconvenient to make one...
Hope you are feeling better! :)
