Rose Wonder meets Swirly Bird

Summer Birthdays Are Here

It was a good friend's birthday yesterday which gave us an excuse to go out and have lunch which was lovely. We went to the local garden centre chatted and wandered round looking at everything before heading home. 

We were supposed to do it on Friday but I was waylaid by my husband and ended up spending Friday in Shrewsbury where we met up with friends of ours from Wales, it's a beautiful place, we went for a walk along the river and a dip into town for the shops (oops spent too much).  It was like being on holiday relaxed and carefree with the sun shining down on us all day.

The materials used are:
Ink: Crumb Cake, Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum
Card stock: Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum, Whisper White
Stamps: Rose Wonder, Swirly Bird
Embossing folders: Brick Wall, Woodgrain
Thinlits: Rose Garden, Swirly Scribbles
DSP: 16-18 In Colors
Accessories: Basic Pearls, Silver Metallic Thread

If you are wondering where I used the woodgrain folder, I embossed the die cut swirls to give them a bit more dimension.

Will be back again soon with more cards

Birthday Boy

Dino-rrific Greetings

It was our Grandson's birthday yesterday and he is besotted with dinosaurs at the moment so the "No bones about it" stamp set was just the ticket.

I put 3 dinosaurs on the card as he turned 3 this year (where the time's gone, I don't know) 

Doing the hills was something new for me, but in the end I was quite pleased with the results, especially after I gave them a bit of texture.
Hope you liked the card

The materials used are:
Ink: Cajun Craze, Delightful Dijon, Garden Green, Memento Tuxedo Black, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Soft Sky, Soft Suede
Card stock: Pacific Point, Whisper White
Card base: Non SU
Stamps: No Bones About It
Thinlits: Little Letters (retired)

Hill texture created using an old non SU embossing plate.

Will be back again soon with more cards

Where does time go

Ten Wonderful Years
Last week it was my eldest son's 10th wedding anniversary and I must admit it doesn't seem anywhere near that long, but it was.  They went to Ireland to celebrate and have had a wonderful time with lots of pictures on Facebook where both they and our lovely Grandson look as if they were having the time of their lives. Hope the next 10 years bring them as much happiness as the last.

The card I made was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest created by Anne Britton, so thank you for the inspiration Anne.

The materials used are:
Ink: Real Red
Card stock: Whisper White, Dazzling Diamonds & Red Glimmer, Foil Red (retired)
Stamps: Number of Years
Embossing folders: Softly Falling
Framelits: Large Numbers
Thinlits: Bloomin’ Heart

Will be back again soon with more cards
