Woo Hoo! It's Your Birthday FMS #158

Today I have used the sketch by Jennifer Timko, for Freshly Made Sketches. It's lovely, clean, uncomplicated which means it can be interpreted in so many different ways. Even I have numerous different designs in my head for this one!

Big News is a great stamp set and you can colour those spindly letters so many ways. Today I went with the rock 'n' roll technique, but it looks to me that I might have to practice it a bit more. So, not quite a perfect result, but still useable, and I don't mind the effect.

Boutique Borders, another of my fave's from the latest Annual Stampin' Up!® catalogue, adds a touch of interest beside the strip of patterned paper. The numbers on the base card come from 25 Days, from the mini Holiday catalogue.

Frequently, I don't finish the insides of these cards until I need to use one, or I am getting a batch ready for sale. I've had to spend so long this week, finishing off cards, that I will make a bigger effort to do it all at the one time (for a little while at least!).

So, you can see a glimpse of the inside above, but I did take a photo to share with you.
I have to head out now to do some shopping for two small boys who celebrate birthdays before Christmas.
