Happy Birthday Sandie!

Hi Everyone,

I made a birthday card for Sandie Munro from London Days - she is celebrating half a century of being on this planet - now that is one good reason to make a card!

Happy Birthday Sandie! 
To the next 50 years, woot, woot!


Since Sandie is best friends with Kylie (who has a linky party going on her blog) I pulled out my HLS sets for this card - I just love that little ellie! Had some trouble with the color purple - not really present in my stash...did the best I could....added splatters and some Washi tape.



I wish I could send that to you - you just have to enjoy it virtually;) - your card will hit the mailbox tomorrow...

Your little balloon toting purple ellie is such a delight, Cornelia ... so sweet ... love all the splatters (of course elephants make lots of splatter with their trunks!). Gorgeous cake ... save me a slice please ... it'd go beautifully with my purple champagne!! Delighted to have you playing along with us for Sandie's special birthday surprise at Time Out!

Freaking brilliant. Using that adorable ellie for the zero in, dare I say it, 50, is a stroke of true genius. Of course, I always knew that about you.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
