Ruby's birthday card

No not my Ruby (I'm not quite that bad that I give my dog a birthday card!), this one's for a friend of my Mum.

I was inspired by Anita's beautiful card over at the Muse challenge - I kept her floral theme and layout, but I've used some of this oldie unloved DP and coloured my Simon Says Stamp flowers to match.

Sorry I haven't been round blogland much - my pc is playing up and just turns itself off after half an hour, and when it does want to work its superdooper slow.  Grrr.  Might have to put a new one on my birthday list ;)  Can't complain much though, it's nearly 10 years old.

The Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge
And here's a wee quickie that I had to make when I found this ice cream DP in my stash.  The picture's a bit glary as the sun was streaming through the window when I took the photo.  It was lovely to see it, our weather has been a bit damp and yeuch recently!

My image is from Eat Cake Graphics:
Unselfishness (MMM ice cream)
I wish I'd used a bigger circle die and I've lost most of my enormous dog's butt and tail!

Love the contrasting feelings of these two cards! Such pretty flowers and a fun birthday card full of whimsy! Thanks for joining us at Muse!

Great card. I love the colourful flowers & stripey backing. It's cool that you've taken just what you want from Anita's card and made it your own.

Two fab cards. The human Ruby will surely love her card! I smiled thinking of you finding some interesting DSP and feeling inspired to immediately make a card. That happens to me, too, from time to time. And not always at a convenient time. But I have to allow my mojo to do its thing, and whatever I "should" be doing has to wait. he he

Two gorgeous cards, Lynne! I love the sunshine-bright colours!

My daughter in Co Dublin sent me a short video of the rain last week, the raindrops were bouncing a foot off the pavement! I hope the worst of it is over and that you have many sunny days ahead!

love Mags B x

Two great cards and great to see patterned paper being used, I really must make an effort to use mine more. A great interpretation of my design too.
Thanks so much for playing along at Muse this week, Anita x
