Happy Birthday ... Percy Pig Style!

Hi there. Yesterday was my Daughter's birthday and since she loves Marks & Spencer Percy Pig Jellies, I thought I would make her a card on that theme. I remembered that the lovely talented Kirsteen had made a really cute Gift bag a few months ago on her blog, so I did a direct CASE of her's and then made a matching card to go with it.

These little pink pigs were stamped with the Stampin' Up! Button Buddies 122737 Clear mount Stamp Set and the cute button noses were some of the medium buttons in Pretty in Pink colour from the Subtles Designer Buttons tub 119745. The stamp used on the card, saying 'Deliciously MADE for YOU' is from the Creatively Yours Stamp set 122612 Clear Mount. I also used the Stampin' Up! White Organza Ribbon 114319, the Top Note Die 113463 and the Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder 123128. I hope you like this as much as Naomi did when she opened her card and wee gift.

Happy Anniversary card and 'Vintage' Scrapbook page

Hi there! Today we are celebrating my 31st Wedding Anniversary, so I thought I would share the quick card I made for Phil. I am so pleased that I made this a few weeks ago when I had a quick moment, as I haven't been feeling well enough to do much crafting lately. It's not often that I am that prepared though LOL!
This card was made with Blushing Bride Card stock, Twitterpated DSP and Mocha Morning flocked Speciality DSP, You Are Loved stamp set and embossed with Cherry Cobbler embossing powder. I love the gorgeous red Glimmer Paper which I used to punch the hearts and Decorative Label. Inside the card was matted with Whisper White Card and I stamped some images from the You are Loved stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink. It looks far better in real life, than in the photo, but as always, my photography isn't up to scratch (oooops!).

I am looking forward to tonight's meal as I've bought some Donald Russell Ribeye steaks to cook as an extra special treat! I still need to think of a special desert to make (gluten-free of course!).

I thought I would share the Scrapbook page I made in April (under the talented Carolyn's expert instruction) at the Tartan Stampers Mini Convention. The photo on this page was taken 31 years ago today LOL!

Happy Birthday.... my lovely Auntie Pat!

I just couldn't help it ..... I just had to play with all these gorgeous products that are in the current Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalogue - The Twitterpated Designer Paper, Satin Pleated Ribbon, Apothecary Art Stamp Set, Framelits, Edglits, Embosslitts and my super-duper simply scored scoring tool to make the rosette/pin wheel. Wow!!  I love this card. Thankfully I was also able to part with the card and post it down to Auntie Pat, in the knowledge that she would love it too LOL! I don't want this catalogue to finish at the end of this month as I love everything in it.
