Another day, another birthday card!

As usual it's none stop here at Funky Hand Towers but I've had to fit in making a few cards as it's Fathers Day on the 15th June and Ians Sister has a birthday this week as well. My Fathers Day cards can be seen on the craft forum Blog here blog.craftsforum.co.uk if you'd like to see what card my Dad will be getting this year!

I was struggling with an idea for a card for Sandi until I looked at
Di Hickmans blog. So this card has been made using Di's latest sketch.

I used papers from my latest craft backing paper download Shabby Saturday. I printed the polka dot paper directly onto the base card so that the paper design is all over , that's something I have been finding I am doing regularly at the moment it's simple to do just make sure if you are making an A5 card like this one that you set you printer to borderless print then your A4 card blank will be covered completely. The flower is by Brazill and I attached it to the card using my trusty 21 gauge craft wire and a button. The lettering is large Doodlebug All Mixed up rub ons which I am still in love with using at the moment!

Since my last card post where I introduced you to Kendrick Kat I have had a few queries asking if I am going to make stamp sets. Well that's the plan. I am still in the designing stages at the moment and I'm having talks with manufacturers so it's not going to be any time real soon but I will keep you posted on my progress.

The weather has been so fantastic here in Newcastle for the last few days it makes it really hard to stay in doors so today I might venture out into the garden with my laptop and try to do a bit more designing for the new CD away from this office, which even with all the windows open is like a sauna this morning!! Have a great day whatever you are upto.
