Christmas Birthday Party

Happy Monday to you.
Over the weekend I had the pleasure of doing a young ladies 11th birthday party.
I had been asked last year and as it was a hit then, I was really happy to be asked again.
The theme was to be Christmas and I took the opportunity to use something new
which you will see for yourself when the new Summer Catti goes live on Thurs 1st Dec.
So here is a sneak preview.

There is a new Die and Glitter Paper which comes in 12x12 sheets of two.
I love the combo of the Pool Party, Silver and Whisper White together, very non traditional Christmas colours. I used a Doilie from the Flirtatious DSP and threaded the matching Pool Party ribbon through it.
I then stuck silver glass glitter onto the edges and finshed it off with Rhinestone brad.
Well we all had lots of fun making our own to place treats inside.
Always a winner when you can make something yourself to reuse and place on the tree.
Thanks for stopping by.

Poppy's Birthday

This month, a relative of ours has a special birthday, as it falls on Poppy Day
and for that reason she was named Poppy.
I had a play with the new Hostess set Array Of Sunshine and mixed it with the new DSP Flirtatious.
I also used Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Lemonade, Concord Crush inks which are this years and
and last years In Colours. The " Happy Birthday" comes from the Perfectly Penned stamp set.
I do love these colours together and enjoyed making this card.
I hope you like seeing my creations and feel free to leave a comment.
Stamp Sets: Array of Sunshine, Perfectly Penned
Inks:Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Lemonade, Concord Crush

Desk Calendar for 2012

Hello and long time no see from me.
Life has been hectic, as hubby had to have an op 4 weeks ago and I'm doing his
job for the  meantime, so no time for crafting.
I thought I'd show you something I created alittle while ago and ready to use next year.

I made this for my daughter and for that reason I made the owl into a girl also. See the little bow?
All I did was make a hollow box to slide the draw into and then stuck an Easel card on top.
The DSP is from the Retired Nursery Suite and the colour pallet is Rose Red and So Saffron.
As I have twin girls as soon as this was made I just had to make another one for her,
so when I can find a quick moment I will show you hers.
Thanks for stopping by.
