Father's Day set

Did you know that Father's Day is less than a month away?  How about making Dad a handmade card?  My class this month will be making this set for Dad for Father's Day which includes the card and the gift bag, perfect for popping some of Dad's favourite treats inside.

If you're not fortunate enough to have a special Dad to make this for then you can always leave off the 'Dad' part and make it for someone else special in your life. 

Please book your seat for the class by 21 August.  Click on my class link for full details.

5th Birthday Shaker card

My youngest daughter is going to a birthday party this weekend so I have made a shaker card for her to give to her friend.  The birthday girl is turning 5 and if you look closely you might be able to see that some of the confetti in the shaker is tiny little number 5's in the colours to match the DSP.  And because a girl always has to have a bit of bling, there's some silver ones in there too.

I have made the card base using our newest in-colour Watermelon Wonder.  After I'd made it I decided it needed a matching envelope which I made using the in-colour envelope paper also in Watermelon Wonder.

Let's hope the Birthday Girl has a wonderful day on Sunday and likes her unique birthday card - nobody else is going to give her one the same and that's one of  the beauties of giving a handmade card.
