My Little Monster


Today is my little monster's 6th birthday! Happy birthday, George!!!! This is the card I made for him using a new set of stamps I got called My Little Monsters from Recollections.

I paper pieced him using papers from the Rich Green collection from Papermania - the first paper pack I ever bought! I'm surprised I've got any left :-)

The sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You....

Then some ribbon, a button and some card candi.... Simple! Love the colours though. I've always been wary of using red and green together since my tutor yelled at me for doing it in a presentation at uni (because of red-green colour blindness....) but I really like this one!

A BIG Thank You

I just want to thank everyone for their patience while I flit in and out of blogland..... My posts are few and far between and my commenting is getting worse! I completely missed my blogaversary altogether!!! To make up for it I will be offering some candy to my lovely loyal followers once I'm back from our honeymoon :-) The wedding is creeping up on me quite quickly now and I've still got so much to do - eeeek!

I'll be back again when I've got a spare moment :-)

Love 'n' hugs,

What a cute green monster! I love how well the red details go with the green papers, especially the spotty button!

Good luck with all the wedding preparations, hun! Fingers crossed that you'll have a gorgeous sunny day.

Also - Happy Birthday, George!!!

much love, Mags B x
