Card - On your 30th Birthday
 Dear Shazza,
For Chall 1 I made a card with my daughter in mind as she 
is 30 next year.  I have used some finger painting with 
green as edges & choose this paper with this 'folly' 
on it...a type of house & a sandy coloured card.
 I really hope we see lots of gals playing along with 
these, this month!
 Cheers, Debi

Hi Shazza,
Here's my entry for FS2S 's extra challenge featuring a green roof,sand and green paint.
I took this photo of an old house in Goulburn,then created a picture. I painted the trees and flower stems,adding Prima flowers to finish them off.The sand printed paper was from Lincraft and reminded me of the parched earth during the drought.I scalloped around the trim and top of the green patterned paper.The chipboard is scrapmatts.Had fun creating this,thanks.Julene Matthews

Hi Shazza,
Please see the attached photo of a card I've made for #1 Birthday challenge.
I used green paint to stamp the love home and the basis for the card was a sand color cs. I also have a little of the sand color on the ribbon and the crochet flower.
Happy Birthday to FS2S!!!

 I enjoyed putting this one together.  I’ve used green paint as a border around the main “frame” of the layout, have striped sandy coloured fabric under the top picture and a cute little bird house shaped chipboard piece in the embellishment cluster at top left. - Jane
