Stamping Bella 'Opal the Optimist'

I am back with my card for the Papertake Weekly Challenge

HAPPY  - - - - - - -

I  was intending to make a Happy St Patricks Day card and then went completely off on a tangent. If you would like to see that card  too just scroll down a bit :-)

A friend asked me to make a 21st birthday card for her niece and this is the 2nd of what I made, I made 2 so that she could choose. THIS CARD is the other choice :-) She is an animal lover so I popped a little kitty on here. 

I was inspired by this card by the lovely Tracy Valur, Designer for Stamping Bella 

and I finished the inside. 

thanks for looking !!

Happy St Patricks Day !! :-)


The best day of the year to go to a pub all day and drink Guinness ;-)

I made this card for Papertake Weekly Challenge starting later today but had a senior moment and got the theme all wrong :-/  So I will be back later with a different card for that :-)

I recently bought these fab Spring Wise Dies, love this Shamrock, it comes in a set of 3 with an egg shape and a jelly bean, I am sure I will be using those a lot too. 

I smooched some watercolour onto some paper and die cut a tag and used that for the inside of the tag, love the soft watercolour effect.
 I added gold accents, thinking Leprechauns, Rainbows and Pots of Gold. As you can see I went completely off on a tangent :-)

Thank you everyone for my Birthday wishes yesterday. I had a lovely day, a little bit of shopping, bought a lovely top in NEXT, and then a lunch with me BFF's :-)
