Smile its your birthday

I always want to add 'laugh this is your present' after that sentiment, maybe I've read too many unfunny shop bought cards!

This is a bit of a CAS card, no flowers and its not all covered in papers - wow! I'm entering it into the following challenges who, would you believe, all have the theme 'things with wings' (the chick on top of the prezzies) Fab & Funky Challenges, Charisma Cardz, Love to Create and, Stamptacular Sunday Challenge 'less is more' and if I'm not too late into One stop Craft Challenge 'bake a cake' (cupcake the chicks holding).

Stamp: Popcorn the bear 'Party Time' (coloured with Copics)
Papers: DCWV 'Citrus Stack'
Punch: Martha Stewart Doily punch
Dies: Nesties oval and scalloped oval
Ribbon and gems from stash

Thanks for looking x

You and Me

Another card with a Wee Stamps digi stamp on (I should be sponsored by them at the moment!) Such a cute image of little love birds and so many ways to colour them, I may try at making them into Robbins for Christmas cards.

Digi Stamp: Wee Stamps 'Bird Swing' coloured with Copics and stickles
Papers: MME 'fine and dandy'
Flowers: wild orchid crafts
Dies: Nesties oval and scalloped oval, Quickcutz heart, sizzix swirl

Thanks for looking x

Thinking of you

I've used a different colour pallet to normal for this cute stamp from Wee Stamps called Sympathy Bugs, I don't do too much black but I really love the colour combo on this card.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges: Divas by design 'Friendship', My Mums Craft Shop 'anything goes', Papertake Weekly 'Anything goes' and the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge 'Animal Antics'

Paper: MME 'Ooh La La'
Stamp: Wee Stamps 'Sympathy Bugs' (thinking of you sentiment unknown) coloured with Copics and stickles added.
Flowers: Wild Orchid
Dies: Nesties 'labels 3'
Ribbons from stash.

I'm struggling at the moment to make a male 60th Birthday card, ugh I hate doing men's cards I find them so hard!!
