22nd Birthday!!!

Hi again!

Today is my sons' 22nd birthday and as a treat (hahahahahahahahahaha - I do tell fibs don't I?), he's having a lie-in!!!
That boy is more horizontal than vertical even on  his birthday!

Anyhoo, I'm waiting for him to get up so I can take him out for lunch - It'll be dinner at this rate and I'm starving!

I made his birthday card, which he loves (he did get up for cards and prezzies earlier before going back to bed "for a little snooze"!!!).


I layered spotty paper onto teal cardstock then both onto a 5 x 7" white base card.
I die-cut a rectangle then cut a square into it and added 3d foam to the back to create height.
I stamped, coloured and die-cut the Tim Holtz Crazy Birds.
I then die cut a square within a square to create the frame for the front and added the coloured birds on and behind the frame.
I also added a Marianne design die-cut birthday box and ribbon and some balloons (can't remember where I got the balloon die from).
I typed the sentiment into my digital designer then printed it onto white cardstock, die-cut it out, and added it to teal card with 3d pads on the back again!
The little number 2's were cut from black card and added to a balloon.
Everything was coloured using Spectrum Noir and Tonic Nuvo pens.
Sequins and tiny stars just finished it off.

Ok, so I'm off out for lunch now.

See you all soon, and don't be too jealous of my probably very naughty and  un-Slimming World friendly lunch that I'm about to have!!!
(May the Slimming World Gods forgive my moment of weakness.....!!!)

Ooops!!!

Good morning peeps!
I've just realised I haven't posted my final card for Sassy Chery's stamps - and this is my favourite one too! I made a circular shaped card for a change!


Before I cut out the digi image, I stamped some Leonie Pujol flowers around her then cut them all out together within the circular frame!

The sentiment is from Docrafts.

I've used Spectrum Noir and Tonic Nuvo markers for the colouring and unbranded circle dies for the card base and frame.
The flowers I bought online - again unbranded!

She's really sweet!

Thanks for looking today :)

Sassy Cheryls Stamps - again!

Hi all!
This wasn't intended to happen but when creativity takes hold, it's important to go with the flow, make what needs to be made then blog about it - even though it wasn't expected!!!
Sometimes it just happens!

So, I made yet ANOTHER card for Sassy Cheryl's Stamps - Making Cards magazine call out!

This time, I chose the Final destination digi stamp as this little fella is just so cute watching the cuddly caterpillar wriggle on by!

I have used white cardstock and an unbranded patterned cardstock to make the card, along with Spectrum Noir blendable pencils, alcohol markers, and unbranded coloured gemstones.
I saw the sentiment online and typed it into my digital designer before printing it off onto white card.

I started with a 7 x 5" white card base and added a layer of patterned card to the front leaving a 5mm white border all around.
I die cut 2 pierced rectangles and took the centres out of each one to create a frame and glued the smaller one to the largest.
3D foam is added to the back before placing centrally on the card front.
Once I'd finished colouring the digi image, I die cut it out using a smaller pierced rectangle die then drew a contrasting border around the image for interest.
This was glued to the centre of the frame and sentiments added.

All finished!



So, again,  that's all for now folks!!!

See y'all soon.
