Top Tip Tuesday What a week!

I know I know its only Tuesday and I said what a week in the title…. But I was referring to last week and our Top Tip Tuesday birthday bash! what a fun week, AWESOME entries and so many winners and a special thank you to all of you that came to comment on my blog!!
This weeks Challenge is Challenge 51 - Birthday Time!
We thought we'd keep our Birthday Celebrations going for a week longer so this challenge is one of the most popular.... and we all need birthday cards right?
SO then to the Gorgeous Sponsors for this Challenge…
The Emerald Faeries Garden
And our lovely Lisa has written a brilliant double wiper card tutorial and I have to say its mega easy to follow! and really a fantastic fun card for a child!
Well I have to say I had not made a wiper card and when I started to look at the instructions I quietly thought to myself no way! can’t work that out! HMMMPH! being dyslexic I could not make head nor tail of it… Soooooo I decided to not do one!….. But me being me could not give up and once I has cut the sizes out it seemed easier…
so here is my first wiper card using Isla from Emerald Faeries Garden, Thanks Debs, hope your feeling better…
This is the card closed and would fit in a standard envelope.IMG_3668 (800x600)
Something I have been having fun doing
decorating the back! thanks to my good friend Dorte for getting me into that..

I also used a new spellbinders Shapeabilities to make my card its called Blossom Tags and Accents which we now have at Penrith crafts too! Saying that we have a truck load of new stock! if your passing pop in there's so many new things, yummi!
Card with the wiper popped up.

Ok so I also used Hello Luscious Basic Grey papers, TH tattered florals die and an EK success punch, distress inks, sentiment from the tiny sentiments clear set, ribbon, robins nest gems, jute, the flower is made from the waste from one of the Shapeabilities dies look closer at the shape behind the main image to the back left, then a small punched flower and Robins nest gem and pin centre.. By the way if you can not see the card so well click the image in will enlarge…
