Birthday Hugs with Neat & Tangled

Birthday Hugs with Neat & Tangled
This set of Birthday Hugs cards was inspired by a set Tara Sell made (see her blog post and video) and the colouring genious of Laura Bassen (see her blog post and video). I love the Neat & Tangled stamp sets and I had a lot of fund combining the Better Together set with a few Avery Elle products to create this set of three colourful cards.

Space Birthday with Gerda Steiner
It is my Dad's birthday today and I made this wonderful space birthday card for him. When I was about 8 years old I learnt a little song in school and I came across it again a couple of months ago.
