Sara here - thought i'd just nip on to let you know that it's our Meg's birthday! For any of you who don't know, Meg is our marketing lady here at CCHQ and she's been with us for over 4 years now, but her and I go way back, as we were best friends at University, and she lived with me in my student digs back in York in the 'good old days' and was there holding my hand, and making me multiple cups of tea to get me through those stressful, intense early days of the business!
Anyway, she's turned the grand old age of 28 this morning, so I set to yesterday evening to make her a card - I wanted to use one of my favourite images - I love this stamp from the Strawberry Kisses Collection (it's called Birthday Kitten) and i've just used a couple of the beautiful papers from the Strawberry Kisses CD ROM and chosen colours that match in with my stamp colours. (The sentiment stamp is actually from my Humphrey's Corner set - the Make a Wish plate from a Year with Humphrey Collection)
I of course used my Spectrum Noir pens and here are the colours I used:
Kitten shades of pink and cake icing: PP1, 3, 4
Purple Cake Case: LV1, 2
Cream on the cake: TN1, 2
Candle Flame: CT3, 4
The ribbon is from the Beatrix Potter female selection, ad the Gems are also from our Beatrix Potter collection. Core'dinations is from the Pastels selection (which I just LOVE) and those are some bits of flowers from my stash at home!
Hope you can all join me in wishing Meg a very happy birthday!
