Birthday Worm

Another hectic day! It was so hot and sunny down here today and I found myself wishing I didn't have to do a single thing and could just lie in the garden and sleep! In reality, I had to work this morning and then made all the housework wait while I made a few cards which really had to be done (one for a birthday tomorrow and the other to be posted on Monday!). Then I tackled Lewis's scrapbook. We nearly completed the cover and the first page......only another 19 to go!!

Anyway back to the card I made. This one is for my nephew Aaron who lives in Germany, so this needed to be completed today as my Sister is sending a parcel on Monday. Decided on the birthday worm from Whipper Snapper - I just adore this little chap!

As you can see, I thought I'd be a good girl and make a spare to try and keep on top of things - they're only very slightly different (brads, sentiment and the colour of the earth). Used Promarkers to colour him and Rainbow Sherbert paper from SU. Sentiment is from Craftwork Cards, clip is Making Memories and ribbon is Dovecraft. Large green brads are Bazzill and smaller sparkly ones on the other card are Doodlebug. Also used SU punch to round the corners.

Going to have a nice glass of wine now and sit and watch a bit of TV. Hope you're all having a great weekend.
Crikey! Nearly forgot to mentioned I followed Dawny's fabulous sketch on PTW - hope I've got the right one as I printed off a couple of hers lol! I'll soon find out when I go to link it to their blog!!

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...

Birthday Wreath Card

Saw this design on one of AMD TV shows and fell in love with it immediately so set about making two different projects with the same design.
This is the first...

...a birthday card for a friend of mine.  I haven't quite finished the other project so I will show that another day.
