Time For A Party

Hi all,
Well this weekend I have been busy doing a party for a dear friends daughter and also attending a 5 yr olds party.
It was my first childs party and I think it was a great hit.
Mum of DD10 and I decided that we will get the girls to make their own treat boxes and fill them up with
lovely sweets.
Of course I made a sample first and this is how it turned out.
Bold Brights is the colour theme which I thought is great for a kids party.

I had just purchased the Fancy Favour Die Cut which is really easy to use.( Especially if you have the Big Shot Ha Ha). It takes no time at all, so easy for a party. I included the Bold Brights DSP to mix and match with the Butterflies, Markers and Ribbon.
The birthday card I made for her was nice and bright too.The DSP is non SU , but thought it went so well with our new In Colour Concord Crush.

I hope you like my items for you to see today. I was also ask to make a couple of wall hangings as a present from her Mum & Dad. For some reason I totally forgot to take photo's. I will get the photo's at a later date and post them on my blog.
Ink:Concord Crush,Old Olive,Chocolate Chip, & Real Red
Cardstock: Concord Crush, Real Red, Delightful Daffodil, Garden Green & Whisper White

Cottage Garden Birthday

Hi ya
I had to make a card for an Auntie in England who's name is Poppy and her birthday is on Poppy Day.
She is a garden fantic and I decided to use Cottage Garden for her birthday card.
I used Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry and Concord Crush for the colour combo and Cottage Wall DSP.

Unfortunately, SU doesn't sell the Cottage Garden DSP anymore. It is now Sunny Garden, so check that out in the new 2010-2011 Ideas and Catalogue.
I'm getting used to the new In colour Concord Crush and took this opportunity to use it.
Just a quickie today.
Thanks for coming by.
Till next time.

It's Party Time Invitations

Hello to you all.
My dear friend asked my to do her daughters Birthday Party for her later this month.
Of course I said yes, but you can't have a party without invitations.
So I came across Karen Thomas' post for invitations and thought this is such a different way to construction
one. You have to get more creative as kids get older.
This is my take on it.
I rolled the invite to fit inside the milk carton and stuck half Velcro dots onto the ribbon to fasten it.
The card stock goes well I thought with the DSP. Sorry this is not SU.
The colour theme is Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum and Pear Pizzazz.
Mum collected them today and says she will be over the moon.
Now to organise the yummy treat boxes they will be making.

Stamp Sets: Party This way, Got Treats
Cardstock: Blushing Bride,Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum, Pear Pizzazz, and Whisper White
Ink: Blushing Bride,Baja Breeze, Peach Parfait & Pear Pizzazz
Other:Mini Milk Carton Die, Big Shot, In colour ribbon, Scalloped Trim Edge Punch, mini clips.

Thanks for stopping by.

Where Has The Time Gone?

Hello fellow blog viewers.
I have been out of action I know and for good reason.
My 5 yr old son ended up hopsital after picking up Rota Virus. It was a very stressful time and not one to be repeated. We stayed in the Childrens Hospital for 5 days and was so glad to take him home. To look at him now you wouldn't know he was so unwell which is great.
He was so upset that he missed out on Trick o Treating.
His sisters managed to go for him and this is what they looked like.

When we came back it was fast approaching a dear friend of mine's 40th birthday, so I sat down and made up this card for her.
I used for the first time Embosslits-Beautiful Wings. They are so cute aren't they?
My colour pallett is Blushing Bride and Basic Grey.
The stamp set is Party This Way.
Now I'd better get it sent off.
Thanks for catching up.
