Becky's London Birthday

At Kate Hadfield Designs there are so many fabulous sets it is really easy to get inspired to use them. There are digital stamps which you can colour, coloured versions you can scrapbook or make into digital layouts. Papers, patterned overlays and doodles galore. No matter what your skill level there are so many goodies to play with.

This card is for my youngest niece who is 27 today! I have no idea where the years are going to. She has gone to London for the weekend with her parents so I thought a London themed card would be appropriate for her. 

I started off with the plain blu paper from Red White N Blue and made a border top and bottom with strips of the striped paper. 

I then added the crown border from the Jubilee Freebie. You can download this here

The rest of the elements are all from this great British & London themed pack Cool Britannia. I selected iconic landmarks, played about with the placement and then added text boxes. This was printed out with a black border and then added onto to white card base.

Becky sent me a message this morning to say she absolutely loved it so I am a happy Aunty right now.

Becky was born with learning difficulties, autism, ADHD and suffers with narcolepsy (that girl can literally sleep anywhere!) She works full time as a carer, has an amazing career despite being told she would never amount to anything. She has the sweetest disposition and we could not be more proud of her. Her childlike sense of wonder is so pure, she is just a happy person to be around and I love her to bits.

Over at Kate Hadfield Designs there is lots going on. Kate is really generous with her freebies which are readily available. If you sign up to the newsletter you get access to an extra subscriber area the Doodle Den where there are loads more freebies. There is a gallery full of projects by the Creative Team and customers and so much inspiration for crafters and teachers. I would highly recommend you pop over there and join in the fun.
