Something Special

Another Penny Black for you today. Whilst at Newbury I saw this very cute and adorable concertina card and thought I'd have a go at one myself. This is my effort....There are 2 more sides to this card (front & back) to make it extra special. These are the inside pages...

.... and this is the front... I haven't taken a picture of the back but basically it's the same as above with a blank panel to write a birthday message on. I've 3D'd the hedgehogs again and it was quite bulky when I finished. There was no way it would if fit into an envelope so I made a matching box with a silver elastic belly band with embelishment to go round the middle.It was fairly time consuming to make but it does look lovely. The colours are Pink Passion and Gable Green which go really well with these Doodlebug papers I picked up at the Newbury Show.

Busy day for me today - Jake finishes school at lunchtime and then it's all go for the party preparations on Sunday. We have a birthday cake to find so if anyone knows where I could get an 'off the shelf' Scooby Doo cake from (UK) I'd be very grateful!

Tfl & see ya soon!
