It's all about Birthdays at PanPastel UK

Got a birthday project in mind for this week? Then head on over to PanPastel UK challenge blog and join in the celebrations with us.


I have more of the mini blueprint stamps by Tom Holtz (I really can't help myself LOL), they are from set 4, I am just loving these at the moment and so this is my make - a birthday card. 

All the elements of a great birthday, 


the cake, 


the pressie, 


the party hat 



and the birthday balloon



Have a great birthday if you are celebrating yours this week. 

Some quick notes - for the images I stamped onto pearlised paper and used the Graph'it markers, they really blend beautifully. On the text paper mount I used PanPastels and another stamp from Mr. Tim off of the Ultimate Grunge set. I also got the sewing machine out and had great fun with the stitch dial LOL.

I hope your weekend is going well and that you have some creative time for you.

Take care and thanks for visiting.

Really gorgeous I love the vintage look, that style of artwork reminds me of the early episode of winnie the pooh and how the scenery was drawn in them love it (lol I am winnie the pooh mad though so maybe it's just me) Hope you have a lovely sunday
