A card for Edward
Edward is a very special young man - and he adores his Westie, called Izzy. So, Izzy it had to be when I made his latest birthday card.
The decoupaged Westie image, doggie dish and ball were all from a decoupage sheet by Jolly Nation - of course the bowl didn't come with Izzy's name already on it....that would have been just tooooo much of a coincidence:)
The background (err, easel card again!) of grass and sky used card from my stash, the ribbon and button were also from my stash. The 'Happy, Happy Birthday' stamp is an Anita stamp. I got it ages ago from a rummage box in Hobbycraft - reduced. It has a little bit of rubber missing from one of the letters - probably why it was reduced - but it's a great stamp to use on lots of cards, especially for youngsters, and it's easy to fill in the missing bit with a teensy brush and some ink from the inkpad.
For Edward's name I stamped different coloured letters onto little squares of white card using a See-D's alphabet by Do Crafts - bought from Mad about Cards. These unmounted sets come in all shapes and sizes and cost about £1 a set. I just love Mad About Cards - they have ever-changing offers in their 'Pound Shop'....some bargains to be had here, and we all love a bargain!!! On hindsight perhaps I should have drawn a line joining the letters to make it look like bunting - but Edward was happy and that's good enough for me :)
