Lots of Birthday's This week so lots of Cards!!!

Well I have been busy making lots of cards for many people, I was asked by my mum's friend to make a special 1st birthday card for her Great grand daughter, the spec was in the night garden theme, pink and cream, that's where I started to panic how do i make a card special I went to pot everything I put together just didn't look right so I finally came up with this I decided as it was for a 1yr old i would try to make a Shaker Card so here it is what do you think??

1st Shaker Card:

Ingredients - c/s: papermill,

acetate- papermaina,

beads and stickers - from stash,

Image- BBC website

Letters- Cuttlebug alphabet die

Hearts- Martha Stewart punch

Sentiment- Stamped with pigment ink and heat embossed with Pink

The next 3 birthdays were all for the same family, yep they are all in the same week, My mum's best friend Kerrie was the big 40 on St Patrick's day and it was also her daughters 12th birthday, the Tuesday after was Kerrie's other daughters birthday who was 13 this time round!

Kerrie had all her children by Cesarean section and was twice given her birthday as the 1st date the hospital kindly moved it to the week after for the 1st child, but the 2nd child the hospital wouldn't moved the date so its like Christmas all over again!!

Here are the cards i made

A very very Late showing of my Valentine card

Yes ladies and gents I did say valentines card!!! As some of you may know I have recently split up with my boyfriend of 6yrs so why make a valentines card I hear you say??? well a few of my friends have also split up with partners so we are all single again and enjoying it immensely so as this would be the 1st year for a while that we wouldn't receive a card to our knowledge, one of my barmy mates came up with the idea to make a circle of love (yes you heard right) so we each had someone we had to buy for to make sure we all got a card and a little something for valentines day.

So here is the card I made .... i have to say im really impressed with the turn out of this card let me know what you think

Ingredients :

Cs- bazzill basics + papermaina
Hearts- stamped and heat embossed with
Sentiment- Stamp love set (cant remember who by)
Stamp- Penny Black
Medium- Prisma's with sansador
Ribbon- from stash

Unfortunately my friend was meant to be picking everything up but she still hasn't. I wouldn't mind she only lives 4 houses around the corner but I think she may be coming from Australia it's taken her that long, which also meant my sister didn't get a card in the circle of love although she did get one from a secret admirer which was good!!


I'm back for good i promise

Hi folks, I'm really sorry I haven't been around for a while I have had a lot on at the moment but that is another story, anyway I have been making cards and purchasing craft goodies oops (I am naughty) so this may be a very long post so I apologise in advance just bear with me and keep awake as I always appreciate your comments and opinions and would like to know how I can improve!!

So Here Goes .....

My 1st card is one i made a few months ago for my friend who had recently been made redundant and was struggling to find a job she was seriously prepared to do absolutely anything as she just needed money as she was finding it extremely hard only have one wage coming in and two children to look after, which in this current climate there will be many more people in the same predicament at the mo which is very sad to hear, Well after many interviews for a range of positions Vicky has finally got a job working at Manchester Airport which is some thing she trained in at college a few (i mean many) years ago!!! So congratulations Vicky I'm so pleased for you she doesn't start training till next week but she was prepared to wait,

So here is the card i made:

Sorry about the quick photo she arrived at the house just as i was adding the finishing touches to the card!!!
