This weeks requests…


 This week one of the kiddos requested a Harry Potter inspired card.

I CASed this card from here

I free hand drew the hair and the scar before cutting out. I used SU Celebrate today for the “happy” and Number of Years for the “st”.  The die cut numbers are from Papersmooches popped up with foam tabs.  The glasses were made with circle punches and a strip of cs.

And for another 21st

A quick and easy card along with a personalised envelope.   The envelope was large enough for the personalised luggage tag and gift card and the card.  I CASed the envelope from here

And my last share for today is Ms A’s request. Ms A chose all the elements including the card base.  For my regular readers you wont be surprised she was very specific about what colour papers had to go where!

Thats all for today

Some simple balloons…


Another busy week.

Today I am sharing a card for one of the upcoming parties we have. I am linking it up to the following challenges (click on the pics to take you to the sites).



and here is my card

TCTC feb 2016 (533x640)

A simple card.  I stamped the first balloon from SU Celebrate Today onto whisper white cardstock in night of navy ink.  I added die cut balloons in crushed curry and paper from everyday chic where I coloured a few hearts with hello honey marker. I drew the balloon ribbons with a marker before adding to crushed curry cardstock and adhering the piece to my card front.  The sentiment is from Endless birthday wishes.

Enjoy your weekend



Time for a birthday or three! …


Yes it is birthday time in my house.

Wednesday Ms S celebrated her 16th Birthday and yesterday Ms A turned 11. Monday will round out the third with Ms E turning 20! Yikes.

So can you guess what we have been doing?

Last weekend Ms S had 15 or so boys and girls over Sunday afternoon to celebrate with pizza.

Here is a pic of the lolly buffet.

This card I used Stamplorations balloons and banners stamp set with hand drawn strings. The balloons have a wink of stella and glossy accents to finish.

Tomorrow we are having a dozen girls over to make bath bombs and lip gloss with Ms E and a couple of her friends helping out.

Monday is another big day with the dual celebration of Ms E’s birthday with Toy Story’s 20 year anniversary. A movie marathon is planned with sushi and dumplings. Followed by a sleepover as most are on P plates.

I sure hope I get some sleep I have a big day at work on Tuesday.
