Girlie Birthday

I did a little bit of paper piecing on this one, along with some pink gel pens to add in glittery hightlights on the bag and lingerie. It's mainly done with some peel offs I had in the back of the 'craft table top box' so thought I'd use them up. Along with a pretty sentiment (from the wonderful Di as usual!) and some spotty background paper.

The edges of the matted and layered section were rounded with a corner edge scissors I bought. Only some of the edgers work and I did email, then write to Fiskars, but they never replied. Just shows they really care about their equipment and the people that use them.

Some companies are brilliant - and some aren't.

Hope you like the card!

Hi Karen

I commented on this and it went walkabout :( Love the card honey, so girlie and of course I lurve pink! I had a little play with my scissors and they sure don't live up to the claims do they, they don't cut a small inwards corner - just snip a little straight line off! Flipping nail clippers would do a better job. Di x

A lot of companies just don't want to know which is a real shame as they lose customers, and also they should remember bad word of mouth goes further than a compliment!!! Us crafters look after each other!
