Fabulous at 50

Good morning and happy Sunday. I'm really pleased to be sharing my second project for Country View Crafts 'hand stamped' challenge, and this time it's a birthday card for my brother in law.

Whenever I need a fun birthday card I always seem to reach for my 'crazies' and my favourite Paper Artsy goodies.

 I started by making my background with my lovely bright fresco's and this fun JOFY mini background stamp.

And added some tactful 50's - just in case he'd forgotten!

 Then I cut out some frames and painted these in the same colours, and stamped and painted my sentiment.

Now for the Crazies! I've stamped and die cut the Crazy Dogs and accessories. 

 I've added Glossy Accents for their eyes.

 What's not to love about these guys?

This is one of my favourite sentiments for a birthday card, I think it really packs a punch.

I always love making these cards, they are such fun and never fail to make me smile.

I hope that you play along with our challenge, what's not to enjoy about stamping, it's my favourite crafting thing to do.

I'm entering this into the Craft Stamper TIMI challenge for November.

Have a great week, and thanks very much for looking x
