I feel like a toad

This is over a week later and I still feel like a toad.

I sent my BFF (see? I really AM hip and trendy!) a birthday card. It's a cheeky card which I spotted in a shop a few months ago, and immediately thought of her. It's not hand-made, but it made me laugh, and I thought it would amuse her, so I sent it.

THEN she posts here on my blog to say how much she loves my hand-made cards, loves the designs, gets disappointed with the selections in shops. Aargh! The guilt!

I was going to send her a house-warming card when she finds her new place, but I've decided to send another card as well. Maybe she needs some good luck wishes for her search first. Sorry A - I hope this makes up for it!



For anyone who may be interested, the houses are American Crafts "Craft Fair" patterned paper, the blue/green is the paper back, and the pink is Basic Grey Urban Prairie Morning Glory. To make the enlarged house in the middle, I photographed the paper, colour-corrected it, cropped it and printed it on plain white card. I really like how it's worked out!

Love this card! And I really love how you did the large house. What a neat idea!
