Sweet 16

My fabulous little sister is turning 16 shortly, which is hard to believe, & I have made this card to celebrate the occasion. She is a wonderful girl full of love, warmth, & spirit. I can't tell you how much I love her and how proud I am of her. Let's just say there are many, many years separating the 2 of us.
This 2nd photo gives a better idea of the true colour of the card:

Thank You

I am very happy with this card. I was thinking tonight I should really post one of my layouts to the blog. I feel like I want more practice 1st. There just hasn’t been one that has felt right for the blog yet. It will come in due time I’m sure.

In the meantime, I have 6 birthday cards due soon & we’re off to the UK for vacation in just 7 days for 3 weeks! Yeah!!!

No layouts in the near future for me ;-)


Happy Birthday Heidi!!!

I made this card for both the Simon Says Stamp Challenge & also the Basic Grey Challenge. I hope you enjoy my creation as I know I had fun making it. My only stumbling block was creating the image. I have yet to work with stamps & markers so I stamped the cupcake & used stickles as the main decoration for it. I can't say if I'm sure I like how the cupcake turned out but it is always good to try something new :-)
  • The Simon Says Stamp Challenge was a layout challenge using a fabulous sketch by Iris. I just had to give this one a try this week as the prize looks FANTASTIC and it was in support of Heidi's birthday. I made a birthday card - I hope you like it Heidi!!! The picture of that cake on the blog was too funny for words. My guess is Heidi has a great sense of humour and I love that!
  • The Basic Grey Challenge was a colour combo using the following 3 colours:
Brown Yellow Pink
For BG product I used brown brads, elite paper from the sultry collection & straw paper from the urban prairie collection.

Happy Weekend All!!!
