A minty birthday card

It was my friend Vics birthday on Bank Holiday Monday so I got the chance to try out the new Sizzix die that I bought when I visited my parents a couple of weeks ago.

It is a jigsaw die, one i've had my eye on for a while but just hadn't got around to buying. I just printed two papers from my download collection Minty Madness and cut out the shapes and then swapped the pieces around alittle. I did orginally cut three papers but it looked better with two so expect to see a stripey jigsaw sometime in the future on another creation!!

The sentiment is a stamp that I purchased ages ago and haven't used before by an American company called Pink Paislee, it's from their Office Lingo stamp collection. I bought them from Craft Obsessions. I think I will be using it again as it fits for so many situations.

The topper is a stamp from one of my fav companies Stamping Bella. I just used chalks to colour the girls in as I wanted it to be quite neutral and gentle.

It's the usual madness here at Funky Hand Towers but with an added ingredient as Ian has taken the whole of September off to work with Funky Hand! We are working very hard on getting the new CD release ready..I'm sooooo excited about it as it's going to knock your socks off when you see it!

Also to prove that I do listen to what my customers say and ask for I will be bringing you details very soon of two new Word Book download releases..Christmas themed ones. I'll be back with more info very soon.
