Happy Birthday John

I made these cards for my Brother In Law's 70th. I cased the first one from Cherrita's swap card and made a couple of design changes.

Stamps: For Father, Sanded BG, Say It with Scallops
Card: Basic Grey, Going Grey, Real Red, Watercolour Paper, Whisper White
Ink: Black Pigment Ink, Real Red, Basic Grey Stamp Pads, Creamy Caramel, Real Red, Basic Brown, Brocade Blue and Close to Cocoa Markers
Accessories: Red Ribbon and Brads, Clear EP, 1 1/4 & 1 3/8" Square Punches, Sponge

I created a scene with this card for my SIL. My BIL has raised a number of Emu's on our farm, so I chose that theme for the card.

Stamps: Stamp It Emu & Chick, Acacia Tree Large, Young Blackboy, Stampworld Grassy Hills
Card: Creamy Caramel, Old Olive, Whisper White, Black
Ink: Real Rust, Creamy Caramel, Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Ballet Blue, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard Markers, Stazon Black
Accessories: Mask, Scallop Circle for template for clouds, Sponge Dauber, Sponge, Word Window Punch, Computer for Sentiment

Cat's Ink Siggy


  1. Love the toolbox card and I'm off to google Emu. Pretty sure Emu's are not hanging around here in Atlanta! Your clouds are fab (behind the Emu). Emu -- what a funny little word.

  2. Great cards Sue - love them both! Wonderful job on the colouring!
    Wish John a very Happy birthday from Brian & I and we'll have a beer for him!
