Birthday Boy!

Thought I'd quickly share this special card with you whilst I'm waiting for Lewis's birthday cake to cook! Can't believe my little boy is ten already - only seems like yesterday I was in agony trying to push him out!!! Anyway, Lewis is very keen on cardmaking and scrapbooking and always asks me to make him a card rather than buy one so I do try to push the boat out a bit for him. This was my first attempt at a star card and I was pleased with how it turned out. I do love my Penny Black stamps but was pushed for time so cheated and bought the PB Stickeroos! Have also used Bazzill cardstock, some scraps of patterned paper (I knew they'd come in handy one day!), Cuttlebug embossing folder, Cricut George and Basic Shapes cartridge (for front cover) and Pink Petticoat sentiments. I haven't shown each individual page but basically, there's an image and sentiment on each one. He was chuffed as nuts with it! Better go and check on the cake.....I can smell something very chocolatey! Yummy!

Card Requests

Been quite busy recently trying to juggle work, home life and the card requests I have received.  This type of card has proved very popular so here are the ones I have made so far...still have a few more projects and cards to complete before I am able to start on my own!

The two 50 cards do look almost identical however, they are for twins!


Here's the last of my Christmas makes...

A Special 60th

My lovely Sister is celebrating her 60th birthday today so had to make her a special card.  Her gift from us was money so also wanted to dress it up a little so made a Tim Holtz gift card holder to put the money in and attached it to the MDF 60.

The bag was a little rushed to say the least!
