Happy Birthday 2 U!

Happy Birthday 2 U!  

A one layer card for Less is More using numbers is the challenge this week.  I've used a retired stamp set - Party This Way - for the Happy Birthday.  This set has balloons with numbers on them which I've used loads of times before but decided I'd just go with the funky sentiment.  I stamped stars from Simply Stars but stamped off first.  I then added the 2 U from Outline Alphabet & Numbers and coloured in with Stampin' Write Marker Peach Parfait.  Then it was time to have fun with the rest of the numbers.  Did you spot the deliberate mistake (not)!  I accidentally stamped the 4 in Tangerine Tango so did some more to make a feature of it.  I've now got an aged 4 card!  Hee Hee.

You'll see I've been mixing old sets with new.  It's fun to receive new sets but also not to neglect your old. 

I'm pleased to say that I will have a new Virtual Hostess Club starting in October.  I'd love to help you to build up your stash of new goodies.  It's a super way to spread out your wish list and I can help give you some inspiration for your old sets too!  Have a look at the Virtual Hostess Page to see the details of the club or drop me an e mail -  

We've had a great day today.  I'm loving this weather.  Here's an up to date pic of Jess at the park. 

She was a great hit receiving loads of attention.  

Speak to you next time. x

I'm not surprised Jess got a lot of attention! She's lovely! Great card. I came up with an idea for this challenge (in a dream, no less) but then realised upon waking that it isn't one-layer. Ah well, I still intend to make it anyway!
