Spring is in the air !

Hello to you all,
Well the snow has all gone round here, (so glad I let Zoe stay off tuesday,) and it's rained on and off all day :( Rubbish.
So, today I have to share with you, a card for my mum's friend who's birthday it is in a couple of days. My mum likes to send larger cards so this 8"x8" card blank from CWC is perfect. I covered one of their chipboard wellies in DCWV glitter paper from last years spring stack- lovely paper that- and stamped with my Doodlebug clear friends set onto green for the border along the bottom. I then water coloured the flowers using my whispers pens. I cut out a couple of the flowers from the paper and layered them onto the welly with silicone for some texture. Paper flowers and a crotched one at the top attatched with gem brads. Heidi Swapp Happy Birthday stamp which I embossed in gold. Not really showing up very well on the picture as it's quite dull here, thats why I'm explaining in every detail, but please, feel free to ignore if you can tell for yourselves !!!!

I have even done some stamping on the inside as I thought, in such a large card it may be a bit too much to try to fill the space !! Sentiment says 'friends are the family you pick yourself ' I do hope they like it (both my mum and her friend)

Do let me know what you think,

Hugs, Sarah-Jane xx


  1. Marvellous card SJ! I just love the flowers coming out of the wellie & I know just how hard it is to cover an 8x8 so well done for managing it with such style :) xxx The inside is so pretty to!

  2. What a fabulous card Sarah-Jane, love the wellie!! Your mum's friend is going to be thrilled to bits when she receives this.

    hugs Bev x

  3. what a fab card, love the way you let the flowers hang off the top of the card! i might have to give it a go, i always try to squeeze everything into the square. great colours too! love it :)

  4. Love the wellie! I have the spring stack and love that daisy paper! I like the way you have decorated the inside. Big cards can be a bit bare inside.
    Great card!
