More Birthday's With A Box

Hello to a very wet day in Sydney.
I said this month is busy for birthdays and here is another card and box to show you.
Now I'll warn you it is bright.
See I told you it's bright.
Now this card is special to me. Apart from the person it went to I learned how to do a bow from a very clever and talented Teneale Williams. It is from her Workshop Wow card 1 from convention and I just had to have a go. I had always been curious how she does those bows so perfect and now we know why.
The colours used for this two items are Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Very Vanilla and Pumpkin Pie.
Top Note Die for the big shot and scored across 3/4 of the way up and fold and their is your purse.
A button is placed in the center of our purse and there you have it. So simple.
Well I hope my post brightened up your day especially if it is miserable outside.
Not looking forward to the school pick up run to get soaking wet again :(
Till next time.

Birthday Purse

Howdy fellow readers.
If you read my last post I mentioned this month is a busy month for birthdays and parties.
I love the new DSP Sweet Stitches from the new Autumn - Winter Mini 121781 $16.95 and decided as the
card is for a little girl I would used it here.
It's loud I know, but I think it's what kids love.
From the Big shot I used the  Top Note Die. I cut 2 pieces stuck them together and scored 3/4's of the way up to fold over.Now you have your purse.
I embellished it with an Eyelet to disguise as a button.
The card stock buttons are embosslits also from the Autumn - Winter Mini 121813 $21.95  aren't they cute?
Hope you enjoyed the post.
See you soon

Busy month for Birthdays

Good day to you all.

Not such a nice day out there, so stay indoors and keep warm.
I've had a few cards to make this month as their is a few birthdays going round and funny enough they are
all female.
The card I'm going to show you is a copy of a card we made at our team meeting a little while ago. Very very simple to make and yet cute.
It's like a shadow box because we used deminsionals to give it that 3d look.
The cupcake I stamped is from Got Treats and in fact I coloured it with SU's markers Blushing Bride and Peach Parfait.
For the Happy Birthday I used versa mark. Not that this photo shows it so well but I did stamp flowers on the Blushing Bride cardstock from Good Egg. If you click on the photo itself you can see it better.
So like I said a nice simple to do.
Thanks for stopping by and I'll be posting again soon.

Goodies Used:
Ink: Blushing Bride
CardStock: Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait, Whisper White
Stamp Sets: Got Treats and Good Egg
Markers SU: Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait and Versa Mark
Other: Brad, Blushing Bride In Colour Ribbon, 1 3/4 circle punch and Dimensionals

It's been awhile.

Hello to you all out there.
As the title says it's been awhile.
Where do I begin,well I'll try and make it short.
Hubby went to the UK and came back with pains in the tum, so off to the hospital he went.
He stayed for a few days and whilst this was happening I was doing his job.
Just thinking soon he will be returning to work when he took himself back into hospital because he was in extreme pain and he had done more damage.
So still working. This time he was in hospital alsmost a week.
Again he is signed off and now for a month.
It has been at times extremely hard and it has been a complete role reversal for me and my husband.
On a happier note, it's our daughters 9th birthday today and pre-celebrated over the Mother's Day weekend. It's a very special time because I share my day with them.
Here's a card I made to share.

What's different about this card is I did a spin circle and placed it in the center of the punched flower.
Our team made something like this at Stamp Camp from a shoebox swap.
From the same flower punch is how I made the love hearts.
The colour combo is Concord Crush,Old Olive and Whisper White. 
Thank you all for stopping by.
