Birthday Card ....

Hi Everybody,

Yesterdays  card has been  very well liked on  here, on YouTube and on  Facebook and one or two of you have already tried it for yourselves .... and like the results.

I  knew you would love it ... Yaaaaay !!

Todays card goes back to a birthday theme and would you believe ... it's pink !!

I have used several different dies to make the card and  layered them all together with Mirror Card and foam tape.

The ribbon is from  Mei Flower  and the Diamante swirl is from Want2Scrap

The Bitty Blossoms  flowers have been glittered with a really fine blend from  Glitter Magic

And of course I had to do a video on these particular templates, and other Blossom dies,  and this video has been around now for almost two years.

Now this is the bit that amuses me no end .... it has had 8,350 views ... 27 comments ... 64 people like it ....
  and one person doesn't !!

What is there not to like ????  If it's not what they thought it was then all they have to do is leave the channel.....   Beats me !!

The  "Give Away"  is still on and will run until Saturday.  There are lots of new names on this list and please remember you need to be a follower to win ... and although 404 people have entered there are only 65 comments.

Please leave me a comment and then I will know you have been ... especially if you want the prize ... not too much to ask !!

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

    Have a great day

  2. Gorgeous card as always! But you didn't list which dies you used and I love to see if I have the same dies as you so that I can recreate your lovely cards! x

  3. Beautiful card.It surely is going to brighten up somebody's b'day

  4. Christina, I look at your posts every morning and enjoy your creations. I wonder how you can afford the time and money to create the videos and tutorials and produce such fantastic giveaways. I would love to win, but that is highly unlikely, but good luck to everyone. X

  5. Lovely card Christina, that pearl swirl is fab. Pat x

    Love Sheila xx

  7. Gorgeous card as usual thank you Christina

  10. Hi Christine, really enjoyed your tutorial on the flowers. Your directions are very easy to follow and you explain things well. I have picked up some great tips.

  11. Your card is as beautiful as always! I often comment, but not every time, just due to some time limits on my part. I love all of your videos and always learn something from them, even if it is a technique I have seen previously. There is so much to learn, and I love the way you explain and show every step. Thank you so much for all of the inspiration that you provide to us. PS Maybe the person who didn't like the video just pushed the wrong button!

  12. Awesome video and spectacular card my friend, I love the way you did the ribbon around those gorgeous flowers and wow that butterfly rocks! xxx

  13. Loving this as usual Christina. I have put my name down for the entry, but dont think I left a comment - probably because I am finding it difficult to find where to put it . |Maybe the others are too :)

  14. Your cards are so pretty. I keep coming back for the videos, too. It's easier to learn from watching than reading instructions. You do it so well!
    Thank you

  15. Good afternoon Christina,
    another beautiful card with beautiful hand made flowers this time. Thank you for going through the different types of flowers we can get from the flower dies. Mines never seem to be that good but perhaps i'm just being to critical of my own after seeing that yours is turning out just like my own. I think i will retry this process again after seeing that maybe i'm not making a mistake at all. Thank you once more and to your camera crew for his camera shots once more.
    Love and crafty hugs

  16. I go to your Web site first thing each morning (as soon as I get my coffee). I am quite new to card making but I just love it and you have been a tremendous help in learning techniques etc. I love your cards and you are a most talented lady. I appreciate your tutorials, and i LOVE your charming accent.

  17. Hi Christina
    Another fabulous card you never fail to amaze, your instruction as so easy to follow, I am learning so much thank you.
    I will have a go at making some flowers but I adore the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, yes go say it, lazy girl! I will have a go though, promise.

  18. Hi Christine,
    Beautiful card, and thank for the great video, so helpful.

  19. Christine I love your glitter magic...what color do you use mostly...there are so many to choose from...but I want what you use....
    I'm sure the person who didn't like you was a non-crafter for sure...don't let it brother you...we love you and your wonder videos and beautiful cards...I look everyday in my emails to see if you've done a video..and it's always the first one I watch...sometimes several times...

  20. I don't always comment but I never miss your videos and reading about what you use in the cards. I am trying to build up my spellbinder dies I love them all there are a lot of dies out there and I have a few but the spellbinder are stunning Your cards are always so above what you could buy in stores. can you tell I am a fan. Hugs Kay

  21. Christine, although I read and enjoy your blog everyday, this card is fantastic. I love pink so it is one of my favorites. Thank you for your new videos about the a2 borders.
