have a puurfect birthday ~DH

today i am showing a birthday card i have made for my DH~using the wonderful sketch over on FRIDAY SKETCHERS and following the challenge on PENNY BLACK~ "special someone" (link on sidebar)

used some new papers i have just received by brenda pinnick, this fab pennyblack image (stamped for me by my crafting friend jo) and also the clear pennyblack stamps, sizzix leaves , flowers and brad from my stash ~ finnished with a little glitter.


also today i would like to say what wonderful service i received from a new webstore in the USA i have just used. been after these stamps for ages ~so took the plunge and ordered a few (about 8 altogether) from http://www.rubbernecker.com/ ~fab prices and also purchase $20 (about £13) of stamps and get a free stamp of your choice ~also goes up to 2 free stamps with $50. dave the store owner takes paypal for over seas purchases, and also dave only charges the amount paid for p&p, so i got a nice refund in my paypal account.
i have met some wonderful, helpful people while purchasing my stamps this month ~with dave from rubbernecker, and jean and malcolm from crafty individuals.
hope you can take a look ~some fab stamps!

have a good day! ~and hope you get some crafting time!

Wow! Love your card Nessy, beautifully coloured and love how you've stamped the border too, that looks so fab!! Great deal on the stamps, can't wait to see what you make with them!!
Thanks for the well wishes, still a bit poorly but hoping I feel better soon (crafting has been a life saver whilst I've been in bed!!)
Love Becky xx

Love your cute little penny black card!!! what a sweet BD card!!! Will have to check out the couple of folks you mentioned-thanks for the tip!! Hope all is well!

Hi Nessy,
first your card is fab, love the PB image, coloured so well.
Second, what a great deal on those great stamps, i have two of those wood mounted and they cost about £12 each. The only thing about buying from the US is if you get tax added to your postage, i did once and the bargin ended up costing more. I will check out that site though.
Thanks and thanks for often visiting my blog and leaving lovely comments. janex

Thought I recognised that cat!! Fantastic card as usual Vanessa...I love the way you put so much detail and attention into your cards and beautiful colouring as well! Still buying stamps - you naughty girl! I'm way out of touch with all the stamps and can't remember the last time I went crafty shopping - will have to change that later in the year! BTW, yes I did make six cards and I'm even thinking about starting my xmas cards...shock, horror!!
