Birthday card for a special friend

I have not blogged anything for ages. Normally I don't blog my cards but thought I would make an exception with this one. It's for a special friend and I have to say it looks better in real than on the picture here.

I also have some exciting news. I was contacted by Stampington's Artjournalling magazine and they have accepted one of my journals. It will be published in the January issue.

Next Saturday I am off to see my son in Australia over Christmas, so probably will not be blogging much in the next few weeks.

This is the card

and this is the card with matching envelope
The stamp used on the card is by Oxford Impressions.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
