Happy Birthday Sue

And today it is the turn of Sue from Crafty Bunch to celebrate a birthday.

Sue lives in the lovely village of East Coker where we meet and opens her garden for the National Gardens Scheme.  When I went last year I sneakily took a picture and am very impressed I've remembered I had planned to use it for this card!

This is an 8x8" card which might be why I confused DOCrafts Digital Designer in printing it out as the 5 sections aren't spaced evenly - but I didn't notice until I came to stick it down and this was after my printer had gone through an 'episode' which has resulted in several days of no printing, so at least I have some pictures.

The layers only just show on the pic but do have 3D pads between them which makes a little more of it than a flat picture.

Sentiment is a new set (to me) called Perfectly Penned from Stampin' Up (of course) as are the petite petal flowers (with matching punch).  Leaves are from a Martha Stewart punch.

At least this card should surprise Sue if nothing else!!


  1. Well done for remembering you'd taken that photograph - it has made a lovely personal card for Sue and I'm sure she will love it. Shame about your printer and I hope it gets sorted soon as it is seriously annoying being unable to print as and when you need to.

  2. Sue will be so surprised to see her birthday card with a picture of her own cottage...such a lovely idea Jill..


  3. Sue will absolutely love this Jill......well done on remembering you even has the photo after so long! Hope your printer gets over it's fit of pique......
