Belated Birthday

Happy Saturday.... again, these weeks are just whizzing by!!!

Today I have a belated birthday card to share with you that uses Lawn Fawn stamps with a few adaptations....

I do like to get the most from my stamps and sometimes just by sitting and looking at them for a while you see how else they can be used.... for instance the green flowering shrub behind the mail box is actually the top of the tree from 'Critters in the Burbs' which has been cut away from the trunk and then cut in half to make it peek out either side of the mail box. 
The turtle is from 'On the Mend' and has been carefully inked so as not to include the poultice on his shell and then I drew in the missing detail and gave him a letter to carry instead.

I've used Promarkers to colour the images and popped them up on foam dots, if you're wondering about the yummy grey chevron pattern paper... it is one of the twelve fun patterns from the 6x6 Lawn Fawn paper pad which will be in stock soon... keep your eyes peeled for it at the shop, because the patterns are just gorgeous :0)

Thanks for popping by and hope you have a great weekend :0)
