'Happy Birthday'

Hi friends!
Whoosh...where did the last week go? hectic here with a birthday thrown in to the mix....thank you those that sent me good wishes...they are very much appreciated.

So while the subject is birthdays, here is a one layer card that I had a go at with my new Altenew Peony stamp...super for posting..

and one in another colour......

I love the effect of these layering stamps and even if you don't quite hit the mark when stamping they still look good.

Ok well I must crack on today with those C cards and more importantly hubby's Birthday's a silly time of year for me with birthdays and then Christmas!

Hope you all had a good weekend and that this finds you well and raring to go with whatever you are doing.

Fingers crossed this will post OK as blogger seems to have been meddling again in what 'ain't broke' and in my book certainly I don't like the changes....I have left feedback and urge you to do the same on blogger site...if you feel the same that is!

Thank you for stopping by...I appreciate it very much, and also any comments you leave me...I know it is a busy time of year for till next good (well only if you have to)!!

  3. These are gorgeous cards Carole. That is such a lovely stamp set and I love the one layer CAS design xx

  4. Like you Carole I have a busy birthday time. This week my daughter's on Wednesday and 4 days after her is my son's 40th birthday. Then my neighbour's diamond wedding anniversary on Saturday. I am also doing craft fairs next Saturday and then the following Tuesday! As for Blogger, I also sent a feedback message of complaint. They have now made it fiddlier than it was. Now your cards are amazing. Stunning flower and love these new stamps. I only have the rose set but yours is stunning. Hugs, Carol S.xx

  5. Ha ha...whooosh is exactly what I said yesterday morning too! Weekends definitely go too fast especially when there is so much Christmas crafting to be done!
    These CAS flower cards are really pretty; the stamps give a lovely effect and that sentiment is fab :-)
    Big hugs, Kat xx

  6. You're right, so much to do, so little time. I've seen these stamps, they are certainly on my wishlist. You have demonstrated how petty they are. I am no fan of the new blogger style either it's so clumsy. X

  7. Hope you had an awesome Birthday! Love your gorgeous set of cards, those roses are so pretty!I'm not sure why they thought they had to mess with was fine the way it was!!

  8. OoH Carole! Happy Belated Birthday! I hope you had a fabulous day and wishing you a beautiful year along with many more! Wow .. these cards are BEAUUUUTIFUL! I love how elegant they look!

    Big hugs Birthday Girl!

  11. Carole, I'm not sure where last week went and I'm not sure where the rest of the year has gone either! It's a wonder we can ever find the time to make our cards:) Your cards are beautifully CAS. The colouring and shading is exquisite on both of them. Have a lovely weekend and happy crafting, Sandra x

  12. These are gorgeous Carole and I love your beautiful flowers. I have those stamps but haven't had the courage to ink them up yet lol!
    I'm glad you had a good birthday and hope your Hubby has a good day too - what an extra busy time it is for you!!!!

  13. Two very pretty cards Carole.
    Hugs, Sarn xxx
