Double sweetness


 Thank you to everyone for the numerous and heartfelt Birthday wishes yesterday!
It was a good day.

This card was made to try the double bow technique that Clare uses. She kindly made a video to show how she does it and I couldn't resist giving it a shot!
Some old Basic Grey paper, a notebook border punch, some fine linen twill, a few die cut felt butterflies and some pearl pins! Stamps by PTI.




Most of you heard or "saw" on the forums and FB that my hubster bought me an iPhone4 for my birth day. He also made me dinner too! And I received some simply beautiful tulips from my best friend Mary, and had key lime pie for my birthday "cake" and my kids made me some sweet cards. All in all I'd say it was a wonderful day!






Hope you have a great day today, thanks for stopping by!

Your birthday pics look wonderful. I had a birthday recently and took pics all day to document the day--I'm hoping to scrapbook them someday.

What a beauty! I love the warmth of this card and the elegant finishing touches. Thanks, too, for attaching the vid. Now, I too, (sort of) can tie those pretty double bows I've been marvelling at. Awesome!

Dana, I ADORE this card! A touch of vintage and I love the stick pin/brown felt butterflies! Your double bow looks fabulous as it appears to be "wings" of the butterfly! Thanks for the video on the bows!

Hope you enjoyed your day! Have you stopped playing with your new phone yet? I don't know what I'd do without mine!

Dana said...

An absolutely gorgeous card! I can't stop looking at it! I keep finding new things I love about it...
A few questions:
Where do you get those gorgeous pearl pins that you use?
What did DH make you for your bday dinner? It looks delish!

Clare said...
