Birthday cards

I was lucky to receive some lovely handmade cards this weekend for my birthday. 

This one is from my parents.  It shows the versatility of the stamp where Mum has used both the top of the flower on the circle and the full length flower on the inside long panel.  Thanks Mum - you've made a gorgeous card.

Stamp sets: Happy Watercolor
Ink: Calypso Coral, Basic Black
Cardstock: Calypso Coral
DSP: Watercolour Wonder
Other: Circle card Thinlits Die, Rhinestones, Scallop Oval Punch

This one was from my upline Julia Leece. 

Stamp sets: Flower Shop
Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush
Cardstock: Whisper White
Other: Needlepoint Border Embossing Folder

Julia has used 3 of the current 2013-2015 In Colours. These colours are here to stay for another year.  Not that I'm able to share them with you yet, but we do know what the new In Colours for 2014-2016 are and they are gorgeous.  Watch this space to find out for yourself when the new catalogue comes out on 1st July.

Lastly I thought I'd share with you the two cards my daughters made me at Nana's house.  One wanted to draw me a picture on the front (and I must say I love the picture) and she's put stickers on the inside.  The other has covered the outside with stickers and drawn a picture inside for me

It's very special receiving cards they've worked so hard on, as it is receiving any handmade card.  And that's part of what we love about what we do - to see the joy someone gets from receiving a handmade card.

  1. You are very welcome my darling daughter, I couldn't do it without you being such a great teacher and inspiration.
    Your girls and I had fun making your cards from them, although they were pretty set on what they wanted to do, they didn't want any help from Nana :) .Going to take after their mum
