Birthday Girl Side Step Card (Make it Crafty image)

Hi everyone,

So happy to be able to post a card during the week rather than only on weekends lately. I have had a few hours spare to colour and create, my favourite things to do in my spare time.

How 70's cute is the girl from Make it Crafty. I had to create the tag to match so used a bellbottom font hehe. My butterflies have been made with a Martha Stewart punch and some pearls from Flourish with a Bling who are having a 50% off sale, see below for more details. The pearl flourish and flower are also from Flourish with a Bling.



Flourish with a Bling have a 50% off sale all throughout August, everything is half off!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide. Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage!

Gamer Boy Birthday card (Kenny K image)

Hi everyone,

I hope you're having a great weekend, lovely to see a little bit of sunshine here in Australia, hoping there's more to come as we start heading towards Spring (1st Sept), yay!!!

This image from Kenny K was perfect for my son's Birthday card, he is obsessed with Minecraft, anyone else have this problem with their kidlets? I just don't understand the fascination with it but he loves it.

Celebrate card (The Stamping Chef image)

Hi everyone,

Here is my last card for today, hope you've enjoyed seeing all 3 of them. I have to make a couple of male cards this weekend so they may be next on my blog.

This card was created using a sassy girl from The Stamping Chef. I love how her hair flows, it's really easy to colour. For a change I went around her with a mustard coloured copic rather than my usual blues. 

I have used a Jasmine puffy flourish (orange) and Antique Brown rhinestones from my company, Flourish with a Bling, who are having a 50% off sale this month, see below for more details or click on our business name to be taken to the website.
