Sweet Birthday Wishes

Supplies:  Chicken Wire and Compact Sentiments - Waltzingmouse 
Stamps, Button Boutique Stamp Set & Die - PTI, Raspberry fizz  
buttons and ribbon - PTI, Papermania pearls, Upper Crest 
Border Punch - Fiskars, Pink cardstock - Canson, Magenta Hue - 
Anita's kraft card blank, embroidery floss, machine stitching,
Stamp Press - Fiskars, Guillotine - Purple Cows
and white cardstock.

I knew as soon as my new "Chicken Wire and Compact Sentiments" stamp sets hit the hall floor (delivered by the mail carrier) yesterday morning from Waltzingmouse Stamps I would have to ink them up!

Plus - I have forgotten a February Birthday of a dear friend of mine who is a very talented artist and I need to send her a card and gift yesterday!!!  You know when the panic sets in when you realise you have forgotten?  That's the feeling in the pit of my stomach at the moment.  Thankfully I have a couple of cards sets made, packaged and will send one of these to her.

I used my new Ranger ink (love this colour - Magenta Hue - available at Simon Says Stamp now!).  I had some buttons already stitched onto the stamped cards and was looking for a home for them!.  I soooo love raspberry fizz buttons and ribbon.  I even love the name.  I machine stitched the ribbon on to the card and decided to run stitching all around the button card (barely visible in photo above - you can click to enlarge!).

Challenges
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Mother's Day/Special Girl (for my friend Deirdre, yeap my namesake!)
