Cardmaking with Plundered Pages: Fliptail the Otter

Hi, hi, hi. First things first, in relation to my previous post, I just thought you should know ...

My sister saw the post and my instructions for her not to read on any further as it contained photos of her birthday gift and ... she obeyed! I told you she didn't like spoiling surprises!

And now here I am today with my Mam's birthday card ... but it's OK, because at least this birthday has already happened!
As you've probably guessed it's another Plundered Pages card:
This time it's an image taken from a Fliptail the Otter story-strip in an old Playhour annual:
And I chose him for several reasons - she likes rainstorms and robins - but also because I thought it was a beautiful, Autumnal-coloured image just perfectly suited to an Autumnal birthday.

The 'of good things' half of the sentiment was cut from a 1970s comic book page:
 And the rest was stamped with my newest toy, an alphabet roller stamp:
 It's just like a rotating date stamp .. but with letters, how fabulous is that? It's tempting to stampeverything I own with it .. so don't be surprised if you see it cropping up on projects again and again:
Thanks for dropping by today. Just don't sit there too long ... I may just stamp you ...
Julie :-)
