happy {belated} birthday goodies!

i missed my good friend Ruth's birthday last to make up for that...i thought i'd better make her somthing extra cute...and here's what i came up with.

the card is made from my favourite embellishments of all time...the daisies {K&Co.}, some ribbon for the stems, the ric rac border and the silver bow...and my new favourite Hero Arts message stamps. the pp is by brenda pinnick. its a simple design, but by keeping the colour palette small i think i think it looks very pretty :)

the little book first creation using my newly acquired BIA machine! love this easy to much fun :)

this little book has blank pages ready for shopping lists or favourite photos...and the chipboard covers are covered in garden themed papers...because ruth's garden is her pride and joy...well...that and her lovely boys ;)

i've cut the pages and cover using my Big Shot and by using a clear die was able to line up the flower so it looks as tho the flower is cut out perfectly...actually it looked quite different before it was cut. remember this LO *how did i get it so wrong?* this is actually the same flower!! its one of the things i love about this you can play with things and make them totally different according to your needs!

a green circle, a chipboard R and a few yummy ribbons...and there you have it...a cute and useful gift...and not only that...she seemed to love it!

tomorrow...i've been asked to share some ribbon flower if you love this space!
