60th Birthday Card

Happy Friday friends!! How exciting the weekend is just about here.
I think we are supposed to be having a lovely warm, sunny weekend which will be wonderful. Love, love, love, spending time outdoors, especially after a wet, stormy week.

Here's a card a friend asked me to create for her Mum. Being it was her mum's 60th birthday she wanted a special, handmade card, using her favourite colours of reds and creams.

I used the gorgeous Emma's Shoppe papers and chipboard embellishments by Crate Paper, a Prima flower, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch and American Crafts fabric Thickers. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up. Lots of distessing and inking which I love.

Have a fabulous weekend.

Playing Catch Up

Hello sweet friends. I am playing catch up at the moment with a number of cards that I have made over the last two months. So there will be plenty of inspiration for you card makers out there and even one or two layouts for you scrapbookers over the next week.

For both of these cards I have used MME Stella and Rose 'Gertie' 6x6 paper pad and TGF stamps.

This first card has the gorgeous Blush Babette coloured with copics.

The TGF here is Cheeky Chat.

Thanks for looking.

Happy Day - Get Picky September Sketch Challenge

Happy Wednesday to you all. Not only is "Happy Day" the title of the LO below but it is a "Happy Day" as I got to sit down and actually scrap book. It has been a long time and it felt really good to get back into it again.

I did this for Get Picky's latest sketch challenge which finishes tonight. Just scraping in there.

Here is the sketch

and my interpretation

I only found these photos the other week and thought I had to scrapbook them as these little ones are still friends (and they are 5 now). It is so nice to have these photos for Dillon to look back on later.

I have used a mixture of Echo park papers and sticker embellishments from 'Summertime' and 'A Walk In The Park'.

Here are some close ups:

Thanks for looking.
Take care.
