A bit late...

Today is the birthday of one of my dearest crafting friends. Her name is Julie and her surname Hickey. If you are a UK based crafter you must know her or at least of her!

And this is the card I sent her. Probably will get to her tomorrow, sorry!

For the message, I stamped first the Happy Circle from All Year Round, then I stamped using the same ink -Memento Desert Sand- the initial of Julie's name using a stamp from the Shadow Monograms set in the centre. On top I used a message from the Double Sayings set as it coordinates well with both the All Year Round and the Shadow Monograms.
I used a 1 3/8" punch first and then I layered it up on to a 1 1/2" punch out.

The blank card was made using of of my all time favorite card dies from Sizzix, the ornate card 2 die. The flowers and leaves are also from Sizzix, all available from The Glitter Pot.

And this is the inside.
By the way, have you been to The Glitter Pot's new shop? it is brilliant! I am specially impressed with the studio, so big, so much light!

I have put up the link to the website on the right hand side.
