Birthdays are good for you...!

Hi Everyone,

I have another quick card to share with you today - this time for a lady with a lot of sense of humour who was celebrating her 70th birthday. Her friend, who ordered the card, said that the lady loved cats, so she asked me to make something cat-related. She also asked to have the number "70" on the card somewhere, but to ensure that this was not the main feature of the card. 

This is what I came up with. The recipients were thrilled, so I guess I managed to comply with all the requests! :o) The cats are from a freebie stamp-set that came with a crafty magazine - I knew they would come handy someday! And the sentiment? Well, it has always made me chuckle! ;o)

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Crafty Friends - use a punch
A Gem of a Challenge - Birthday wishes
I Love ProMarkers  - Pets

Have a great day and week!


Happy Birthday with a teddy

Hi Everyone,

Hope you're all keeping well! Just a quick post today, I am sharing a bit of a last-minute birthday card I made for my mum's friend - she loves teddies, and so mum wanted to have a teddy on the card. I decided to make a little easel card, and used some cheerful summery colours on it. Of course, I couldn't resist a few little punched butterflies on a summery card! :o) The bear is a freebie stamp that came with a crafty magazine. 

Hope you like it! For some reason the colouring of the bear doesn't look too great in the pictures, it was much nicer in real life... :o(

Happy Birthday card with Stamping Bella

Hello Everyone,

I am finally managing to share a not-baby-related card with you today! But do not worry if you want to see more baby cards - I am about to go to my craftroom to make another one, LOL. And I will even be using the same stamp I used in my recent creations - that's what my friend requested, so I guess it is well liked not only by me! Can you guess which stamp I am referring to? :o)

Today's creation is a girly birthday card with a Stamping Bella "Posh has a present" image, which is also dearly loved by me. The card is similar to a creation I made last year (you can see it here) and was especially requested by a colleague in work who really liked my original card & asked for a similar version. 

Please forgive the photo quality - somehow, the camera was not willing to cooperate with me this time, and I was in a hurry to give the card to the recipient - it was a bit of a last minute order & make! 

I don't think I even need to add that there is Wink of Stella & Glossy Accents involvement in the card, do I? I did tell you I was addicted! ;o) The dress is paper-pieced, the rest is coloured with ProMarkers. Oh, and the bow on the dress is a Mama Elephant die - fiddly, but gives good results! What do you think:

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Crafty Friends - Anything goes
Stamping Bella - Sketch 14 July
Inky Impressions - 2 or more die-cuts
I Love ProMarkers - Sport (yup, a bit of a cheeky one, but shopping is a sport for many, including the recipient of this card!)
Passion for ProMarkers - Fancy that

Have a great week,

Yes, yet another baby card! :o)

Hi Everyone,

How are you coping with all this heat?! Well, we're having a proper downpour right this moment in Dublin, so I can tell you - it has come as a bit of relief! I do hope, however, that it's not the end of summer, and that the lovely sunny days will be back soon.

Today yet another baby card to share with you - I did say there is a baby boom around, right? :o) We're going more blue this time, with a Baby Boy theme. I used one of my recently favourite LOTV stamp - Balloon Basket. I think it's super cute! And, of course, the image simply had to be accompanied by some Glossy Accents and Wink of Stella - barely any cards of mine make it without at least one of these two recently!

Have a look yourself:

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Crafty Friends - Anything Goes
