Birthday Wishes...


How was everyones' Saturday been?

I went bridesmaid dress shopping today - it was so much fun and a beautiful bridesmaid dress has been purchased, its very exciting :)

So as promised, I'm back with another Birthday card I made for a recent order.

I love the simplicity of it, and of course my love of butterflies makes it a winner.  I used pink polka dot backing paper from Papertrey Ink and stamped two butterfly outlines and a sentiment using black ink.  I finished off the card with bakers twine and a few stick on gems!

I think this card is such great design as it can be made in pretty much any colour - good for matching to peoples individual preferences.

What do you think?

I hope you all have a lovely Saturday night, I shall hopefully be back soon (probably tomorrow) with some more creations.

Thank you for reading, take care.

I'm back....

Good Afternoon Everyone!

So as my post explained the other day I am so sorry for my absence, it’s been nearly a month and I can’t believe it feels so much longer. I have missed blogging and sharing everything with everyone – I feel I have neglected you all.

After gathering some lovely comments I’ve realised how much I love card making and being creative and I really hope to have a less busy time of it in the upcoming months.

So enough of doom and gloom – it’s about time I shared some creations with you!

I got asked to make this card for a girly girls birthday.  I was having one of those days where I have loads of ideas in my head but whenever I try and make it, it looks awful and it gets ripped up and put in the bin! This was until I ordered some embossing folders!! I automatically fell in love with this star print.  Isn’t it bizarre how something so simple can create a card I’m so proud of!

Obviously it wouldn’t be one of my cards with out at least a touch of craft card onto which I stamped “Happy Birthday” and added a bit of sparkle with some stick on pink gems!  I couldn’t resist using some of my new Papertrey Ink “In Bloom” paper in such a gorgeous pink colour. I finished off the card with some mini ric rak (which I am completely in love with at the moment) and some bakers twine.  I have to say the card went down really well. After making it in pink I couldn’t wait to try in blue for boys!!

Wow – it feels so good to blog again!! I hope you leave some comments – good or bad, all are welcome!

I shall be back tomorrow following on from the pink theme!

Take Care

Sincere Apologies.

I am soooooo sorry.

I feel truly awful that I have neglected you! There has just been so much going on. My mum has been quite poorly and all my attention has been going to her. Work is manic, loving my new Team Leader role but the new contract has kept me mega busy! And last but not least we have been decorating so everything is everywhere but... fear not I am back.  I have been still busy creating.

I will be back tomorrow to share some cards with you!

Thank you all so much for bearing with me!

I really appreciate it.

Lots of crafty love.
