Happy Birthday Chanelle!

I have made this for Miss E’s friend who is having an 18th tonight.

You are probably saying to yourself right now there is a lot going on here on this card and tag!  As Chanelle loves owls – owls had to be involved. As for the colour choices – simple they had to match the owl necklace we bought at a chain jewellery store. She has a rather good sense of humour – so we managed to find (a child’s) back pack made of an all over owl print YEAH. We then proceeded to fill it with owl only contents YEAH. I’m sure others observing 3 girls and their mum shop were very entertained. I can’t say choosing a gift for Miss S (13) to take to her party tonight was as much fun.

Cup cake toppers

A busy week(end) for us.

Miss 12 is now Miss 13 and these are the cake toppers for her party on Saturday night.


I used ABS stamps, the new ABS digi paper and the back was plain card stock. I posted a pic of her birthday card a few days ago – so if you missed it scroll down.

She celebrated with about 15 girls at home with pizza.

And Miss 7 is Miss 8 today these are the cake toppers for her party on Sunday and she celebrated with 14 girls and some party pies, chips and other party food.


I used PTI tiny birthday treats and cardstock.


I used ABS Tomorrow’s Dream for her card coloured with markers before being cut out along with MSS Simple Salutations, Creativ ABC and PTI Heart-2-Heart #2 for the balloon. I also used paper from Jillibean Soup and MFT die.

Now don’t think it’s all over – later in the week Miss 16 will be Miss 17 – so I will be back later in the week to share her card.

Thanks for visiting and taking time to leave such lovely comments.

AnnaBelle Stamps ABSC052

I have made this card for the AnnaBelle Stamps challenge this week. Getting a few Chrissy cards finished off early.

 I used a silver paper I found in my scrap pile (sorry I don’t know which company – I need to keep better notes!) mounted on AC cardstock. I used the balloon die from PTI heart-2-heart #2 and turned it upside down. I then stamped it with Round for Christmas stamps from AnnaBelle Stamps using SU Marina Mist ink. I also highlighted parts of these images with spica clear pen for some sparkle. The tops of the baubles were coloured using Zig silver marker. The strings and bows  were made using silver embroidery thread. The baubles were popped up with foam tape. The sentiment is from AnnaBelle Stamps Round for Christmas and stamped using Versfine Onyx Black cut to make a tag. I then used a blending tool and Marina mist to add colour to the tag.

Hope your week has got off to a great start.



Tremendous Treats – Birthday


These are a couple of cards I made a few weeks ago using Papertrey Ink Tremendous Treats Birthday stamp set along with sentiments from Birthday tags and Heart-2-Heart #2. I used EK Success 1 3/4″ and Fiskars 2″ circle punches for the images. The pattern paper in the top card is from a magazine while the bottom card the paper is Romani from Basic Grey. I used Stampin UP! inks to stamp the images.  The sentiment circles are popped up with foam tape. Quick and easy cards to put together.

Thanks for taking a look.
