Hooray for Birthday Week: Day 7 - Botanical Builder

Yippeee, we made it to day 7 and today is my Birthday!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you so much for all the blog love that you guys have shown me this week. It's made this week extra special!!

Today's card I actually made for myself. Now I know this sounds a little weird, because who actually make's cards for themselves, but it all started after a conversation I had with the hubby the other day.

We were in the car talking about my birthday coming up, when I suddenly couldn't work out how old I was going to be. After doing some very poor maths, I suddenly realised that I had told everybody I had turned 35 last year, when in fact I'm 35 this year?!?!? And so I had to make a card using this sentiment:

Of course if I am making a card for myself I'm going to use all my favorite colours too and so I picked out all the beautiful mints and aquas in our ink collections.

I was really pleased with how I got the two tone look on my numbers. I had tried inking straight from the pads, but the look was way too heavy and wet, so I decided to get out my trusty finger daubers and I sponged the colours directly onto the numbers and then stamped them.

Wow, that's it! a whole week of Birthday cards all finished and are now waiting for their new owner. Who is that lucky person who gets to keep all these cards, I hear you say. Well it honestly could be YOU!!
