Well it was my lovely daughter, Bethany's birthday yesterday and she had a wonderful day. She was especially touched by the cards she received from Dawn's Crafty Cards Group (please see the link on the right and join for crafting companionship!)
Bethany is very keen on Japanese Manga and Anime, so I decided to create a manga style card , with characters from "Ouran Host Club" (Please understand here I have no idea what that is other than it is something she likes!)
I used copics to colour the cartoon (which I adapted on my laptop) , foiled with black foil and used my Cricut to cut the rose shapes. I curled the black fronds using a pencil. she was very pleased with her card which was a great relief for me as there is more than a little pressure each year to get it right!!!

Hi! Your card is so cute and clever using the Manga! What a great idea!

You asked about the Remember When stamp on the LOTV blog and it is from Close To My Heart. I'm not sure where you live, but they only sell to the US and Canada and are similar to Stampin Up!

Hugs, Dena

Thank-you both! I do live in England Dena, so I guess for now I will just have to admire the way you have used the stamp :) x
Jo, really can't wait, hope Wendy has the cases in! x
