Good morning .... Its been a busy couple of weeks .  Had x-rays done on both my knees to try and find out if the pain i get in legs could be something to do with my knee joints and not all down to my ' Fibromyalgia ' .  Should get the results in around a weeks time .  Also my mum hasn't been too good .  She had a scan done on her kidney's .  She has had problems with those over the last few years , but they showed more or less what they expected . But the scan has shown a mass above her kidney's , so they want her to have a CT scan now to see more fully what is going on .  So it has been a worrying stressful time here . ........................................ However i have managed to finish a couple of cards .  It was my Grand-daughter's Laurens 10th Birthday last Tuesday so i'm going to put this one up first .   It is my first time using DIGI stamps , but i've seen such beautiful cards that have been made using them that i thought i would give it go .  I found a lovely site called ' Whoopsi Daisy Design's ' ... beautiful imagies and very reasonable prices , there is also a challenge blog ' Whoopsi Daisy Challenge ' .  Take a look you wont be disappointed !

I used white card as a base , then layered with a pale pink one .  The patterned paper i used is from Papermania's Rose Garden .  The image as already stated is from the Whoopsi Daisy Design's ' , i sized this using 'Open Office ' , i picked the drawing one . I coloured the image using ' Cosmic Shimmer Paints ' and H20's , after it was dry i picked some of the image out with Cosmic Shimmer Twinkles Aqua .  I ran the image through my 'Cuttlebug ' using 'Spellbinders Nestabilities Lables 10 ' and i also run  some glitter paper through the 'Cuttlebug ' using the same nestabilities but the size up .  I then layered the coloured  image on top of the pink glitter paper and then layered this on top of the flowered paper .  I added some ribbon , which i bought from our local cake making shop !! Added some flowers and roses , which i added the ' Cosmic Shimmer Twinkles ' to around the edges .  The Happy Birthday sentiment was layered in the same card and paper .  On each of the corners i also added some brads .  Hope you like it .  As i said it is the first time i have used Digi Stamps and also the first time i think that i have used pattered paper .  

Well thats all from me now , i will add the other card in the next few days but i should be off doing the shopping lol !! .... Bye for now .......Love and hugs Melita xxx
