As requested…

Hello

If you have been following me for sometime you would know Ms E (20) is always forward and specific in her requests for cards.  Well we have hit a new level.  I was requested to make a card by her friend’s boyfriend to give to the said friend for her 21st! Follow?

How could I say no.

I started by heat embossing “s” a number of times onto orange card stock which I then punched out with 3/4″ circle punch. These were added to the main card front with some being added with foam tape.  Some of you may be wondering what the “s” circle things are. Ms A (11) thought they were bubbles! and Ms S (16) thought they were smarties.  She was pretty close – the request was for orange skittles. I believe Smarties don’t have an “s”.  I thought there maybe to many skittles, but the response I got was “you can’t have too many skittles”

The sentiments and die cuts are from various sets from papersmooches, PTI, Uniko and Stampin UP!. And as requested I stamped words on the inside of the card.

I will link this up to the current challenge at Seize the birthday here – Anything Goes

One of the ladies I know is collecting hats for prem babies.  I used a pattern from the Craftsy website here by Charm knits and another pattern I am not sure where I got it from.  Thank you to the designers for their patterns.

  1. You are soooo creative! This is a super 21st birthday card – one out of the box! Your kids don’t let you rest on your laurels for long, do they? BTW – I have downloaded the preemie baby caps pattern, and intend to take it with me on a cruise later this year. I have tried to take card stuff, but it doesn’t work so maybe a little knitting or crocheting might be better! I’ll let you know if I’m successful:)

    1. Thanks Ann. Lucky you to go on a cruise – I’m sure it will be here before you know it. Enjoy. These hats are super easy and use hardly any yarn at all. I started on normal needles for the band then went to DP because I really don’t like doing the purl stitch!

  2. Love the little caps and the card is super – your kids are your marketing agents. Now all you need to do is convince them to pay for the materials, and then the time! i love the comment re the skittles too – so typical of the age!

  3. Beautiful card, Love how your daughter puts her order in. Nothing like made to order. Lovely little hats for the premie babies, such a wonderful idea. Cant knit myself for peanuts but I like to admire others work.

  4. Indeed, one can never have too many Skittles! I knew immediately what they were and I think your card is outrageous fun, Vicki!! It will be treasured! It’s so wonderful that you make so many caps for the wee little premmie miracle babies!! Hugs, Darnell
