40th Crafty Night

Hi Stampers

Last night Juanita, my lovely downline, came round and she needed two 40th birthday cards for her friends who are not only husband and wife but whose birthdays are only one day apart!  We set about looking for cards and Juanita came up with the idea of "his and hers", essentially the same card but one male and one female.  Here is what we came up with.  We used the set Cheers to You and Whimsy jumbo wheel and schoolbook serif numbers.

The colours used were Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla & Pumpkin Pie CS, the background was coloured using the marker pen in Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie & Not Quite Navy.  Isn't it great?  Juanita did the boys one and I did the girls one ;o)

An inside view, just finishes it off, don't you think?

Here is the girly one, the same stamp sets are used only the colour palette is different.  Here we used Melon Mambo, Whisper White & Pumpkin Pie CS and the markers to colour the background circles were Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.

And a peek at the inside of this one, aw!

I think that was a great nights work and to be fair we did fit in a good dollop of chit chat and gossip.
Thanks Juanita & I'm sure Jon & Sal will love their bespoke cards.

See ya
