A Birthday card or 3…

Hello

Hope all your Christmas prep is well underway.  No. Mine either! I’ve been busy with other events my December babes and all the things that go with the end of year.  I find I can’t do Christmas shopping until after their birthdays cause they will get things from friends that were on my list! and I’d only have to take them back.

So today I am sharing the cards for those December birthdays.

Ms S was 17 on 2nd December

She celebrated by taking a small group of friends to a local restaurant and with GF cupcakes with meringue topping for dessert.

Ms A was 12 on 3rd December

We celebrated her birthday by having around 30, 12 year olds at home.

The treat bags

To round out the birthdays Miss E was 21 on 7th.

We celebrated by having around 85 friends and family at home.

I made an exploding box.

Thank you to all the inspiration around blog land which helped me to come up with this.

I did have in mind this was to be a birthday cake – however everyone agrees it looks a little like a Wedding Cake. OOPs! Pretty sure we wont have need for one of these for a while yet, but my kiddos like to through me curve balls every now and then!

So over 4 days we had 3 parties (Thursday through to Sunday!).  Ms A also had to attend a party on the Friday night so we went to a party every day.

Last week we had Ms A’s Graduation from primary school ceremony and dinner. This coming Friday will see me finish at primary school after 16 years!

I do have another post planned before Christmas.  I hope you can pop in again.

I must get on and start planning Christmas Lunch.  Yes we are hosting.

Until next time

Cheers

  1. Where do you get your energy from? Amazing cards all of them – please pass on my best wishes to all involved. I thought I was hard done by with one on the 9th and one on the 30th. The one on the 9th was a 21st too, but as she was in NZ and we don’t see her for another week………no card done yet! Hope life i settled now and the holidays come soon!

    1. Thanks Susan. Will pass on. It is a busy time. Looking forward to 27th when I should get a break 🙂 I know these birthday girls are going to want to go to the Boxing Day Sales to spend their birthday vouchers.

  2. As usual your ‘business’ astounds me, I don’t know when you find time to breathe let alone make cards lol. Love the birthday / wedding cake card, it’s so beautiful and clever, actually, they are all beautiful Vicki!

  3. Wow Vicki totally agree with Therese, how do you find the time to make cards. Always so busy then you make these amazing creations, the card for the challenge is fantastic as is the box flower creation.

  4. Fabulous card, I love the adorable scene you created with the elephant and the balloon. thank you for sharing with CUTplorations
