Another Birthday Card

Another friends birthday last week and then another one this week
but you will have to wait till later in the week to see that one, she hasn't seen it yet!
but here is the one from last week.
 Everything is Stampin Up except the greeting that one was a freebie
from a magazine ages ago. The stamp set is an old two step set I got off
ebay and is supposed to be a rose, it looks more like a cabbage to me but it is still very nice.
I have also used my new Stampin Up Top Note Die which came in the week
and I used for the very first time on this card.
I love it.

Bye for now

Not Stampin Up

I can't believe it, I didn't use a Stampin Up stamp for this birthday card for a friend, it was a Penny Black one instead. Can you believe it. The rest of the card is made with, yes you've guessed it, Stampin up card (Whisper White, Rose Red and Not Quite Navy) Rose Red ink and White ribbon, I thought I would start using some of the many clear stamps I have got (only because I re-discovered them, they were hiding in a cupboard) I had forgotten all about them. Why do I do that, I even found out that I had bought a set twice! I must really of liked them, so why have I not used them?
Here is the card I made, I love doing the masking technique, I must buy shares in Post it Notes!

Bye for now

An Altered Birthday Pressie

This is a notelet holder that I altered for a good friend as a present for her birthday, when I bought it, it was a funny grey colour and the paper in it was off white so I spiced it up a bit by painting it cream and chocolate then added some fresh ribbon and a button and also cut some cream paper into squares to fit inside.
Hope you like it because I know Kim did.

Bye for now.

May already?

I can't believe how much I have missed the silence, the boys went back to school yesterday and even the dog looked less stressed he made the most of the free seats on the sofa as soon as they had stepped out the door, those two weeks have been so long! 

Anyway here is a card I made for my sister in laws birthday yesterday.
As usual it is all Stampin Up materials except the embossing folder
that is a Crafts Too one.
I had my very first and will no way be my last Stampin up party on the 29th April
and it was wonderful, thank you to Tracey you are a star, though I am annoyed
that I didn't take my camera so I took photos of what we had made when I got home.

Are they not just adorable?

I made everyone who came a little thank you box with a treat inside to take home with them and they proved to be a hit with a couple of people wanting the template, no doubt I will be demoing them some time soon.

 All were different colours but again all were made using Stampin Up materials
Can you tell I love Stampin Up?
and these beautiful flowers were a gift from Tracey.
Bye for now
