It's Another October Birthday Card!



This is a quick and simple birthday card I made for my friend Lisa ... I had to be careful and not make it too "girly". I used my Gypsy to lay it all out. The argyle card base is from Wild Cards (Lisa loves argyle ... I be she has a hundred pairs of argyle socks), the ovals are from George and the dog and butterfly are from Paper Pups. I used some brown "pearls" for the dog's eye and to add a little detail to the butterfly. And, since I think no card is complete without ribbon, I added a little bow. This was a fun card to make and Lisa was tickled pink!

This is fab Jo, I love that argyle pattern, and the little dog looks so cute. How clever to do that on the gypsy. So far I have managed to cut out a shoe...yes, a shoe :)

Wow, your blog is awesome. I love your cards and this little argyle patter with the little dog is adorable. I also like what you did with Tilda and the pumpkins. Now I'm going to go look up that stamp website.
Ciao,

I love your work. So would you say that the Gypsy is easy to use? I've been on the Michaels message board and I've read some comments from those who were having problems. I've been hesitate right now to invest more money, but it would be nice to not have to drag my expression out to cut one card.
