Happy 18th Birthday!

Our second son was 18 yesterday. I made this card using a Mo Manning digi image and papers from the Very Fine Chap line from DoCrafts( I have had them for years!) I printed a greeting but the happy 18th came from a pack of cake toppers.

White Chocolate and orange cake

Anyway we all had a great time. Especially him!

Card for my sister

I have made a series of cards for my sister’s birthday tis week and you will see various ones over the coming week. Today’s is made using Hunkydory, from one of their Matt-tastic lines. I have double folded one of the backing cards and used one of the toppers. The age and sentiment are from Hobbycraft and the ribbon is re-purposed from an old gift bag.

Cake and running

So, a fiftieth party of fizz and cake, for two friends who like running!  I found these two perfect digis on Polkadoodles’ Etsy store and used backing card from Hunkydory.  I cut some of the backing cards to use the bunting and cupcakes as embellishments.  And di dthe inside too.  (Apologies for the ascribbling, I should have photographed before writing),  I then made a gift tag using the same Hunkydory kit.

A CAS and masculine card today!  I made this using Srif Craft Artist 2 and printed out the guitar and headphones twice so I could decoupage them.

Jasper is 12!

I is my middle child’s birthday today and I have made him a card using a digikit called RockStar from Daily Trail.  The cards is flat and has a co-ordinatinting insert.  The font came from a different digikit.  I love the simplicity of this card as my boy – like most 12-year-olds is not into fussy cards.
