Happy Birthday

Sharing today with you my latest crocheted rug, along with a floral birthday card

The rug is a Polly Plum design - In a Tizzy

  • Stamped the floral from Flourishes- Winter Blossom, in black Versafine around the edge of white card panel
  • Watercoloured with Distress Inks in yellows and blues, and used a white paint pen to add colour to the pussy willows and flower stamen
  • Stamped sentiment from Close to my Heart - Joyful Birthday Occasions with Versamark and silver embossed
  • Layered with a mid blue border on white card and finished with a few spots of white Nuvo Crystal Drops

I am playing along with 

Thanks for stopping by my blog    --  have a wonderful day,   cheers Robyn


  1. Love that rug Robyn - I have just picked up my hook again after many years of neglect.
    Your card is beautiful - love the way you have stamped and coloured the flowers

  2. I first saw your rug and thought Wow - very modern looking - love the colors too. Then I saw your card and did a double Wow!!! I really love the way you have stamped this beauty and the colors are fantastic. I need to write to you as I think of you often, but what do I write? Last night I cooked dinner -- pretty ordinary life but I am content. Will write soon!

  8. This caught my eye straight away Robyn and I love the way you have the beautifully coloured flowers framing the sentiment which is such a lovely font too and matted on to that super blue card which brings it all together...a gorgeous card! x
