While walking in our garden, I found this small piece of birch bark hanging off the tree, so I gently peeled it off, and decided to make an ATC with it. I stamped the border with The Stampsmith stamp. The main image - the Romanov family in the early spring, digging in the snow, is also from The Stampsmith plate (From Russia with love).

This week I had to make several birthday cards. The top one is for my forum friend Joanne, and it is a homage to Joanne. I hope she found it amusing. I used an Inka stamp.
The one in the middle is for my dearest friend David, who's in his 80s, and is like a father to me. He's been very poorly recently, but he's a fighter, and is my hero.
The last card is for a forum friend Paula, another talented crafter.

I've been invited to take part in a birthday book project. I had to make a page, anything I like, but within a colour palette. Lilac and blue are the colours I seem to work a lot with recently. I used a BG patterned paper for my main background, and painted it over with powder blue and lilac acrylics. The main image is by Stampsmith.
Stars are BG chipboard, painted with silver acrylic. There's a bit of an empty space on the side for binding.

My dearest friend Anne is 81. The other day, over lunch at Fleece, celebrating my birthday, she asked me to make a birthday card for her friend. "Maybe flowers... And a Happy birthday message" So far so good. "And could you add her name Joy on the card?" OK. "And her age - 82" (No! I'm tearing my hair mentally, lol) So here it is, as been requested. Adding name and 82 made me wince. But what won't you do for the sake of friendship. :)

Stars is this week's Wednesday Stamper theme.
And Caardvarks micro challenge is Say No to Patterned paper, which is almost a sacrilege to me, as patterned paper and I are the best friends. :)
So, I decided to combine the two challenges.
