It's getting chilly

Tuesday, 18 October 2011

The mornings are getting a bit chipper here. I cycle to work at 6am, so I've really noticed it. Must get the winter woolly's out to keep my handies warm :)

A little bit of colouring and embossing on my card. Love these stamps, you get 4 elegant ladies to play with.

Joshua's 21st Birthday

Saturday, 8 October 2011

Where did those years go?? I can't believe it's our youngest son's 21st birthday on Saturday. He's off to London to spend a few days with friends and meet up with his brother. I'm sure he'll have a great time.

He's not big on cards, so I went for super simple. There are 21 candles on the card. The rest continue inside.

Sheryl's 50th Birthday

Thursday, 6 October 2011

Not sure my sister would thank me for telling the blogging world how old she is, but I've gone and done it now :) We had a get-together with family and friends just before she was whisked off to Las Vegas to celebrate her special day. Hope you're having a great time Sheryl.

Here's the card I made for her. I couldn't decide whether to go for a massive unsubtle 50 on the front or go girly. You can see what I went for. The background text comes from the book Breakfast at Tiffany's which was made into the film in 1961. The dress outline comes from a birthday card that my sister-in-law received some time ago. I just loved  it, so she kindly scanned it and sent it to me. I just tweaked it on my laptop to remove the colour, creating a digital stamp and then printed it onto some 1960's paper.
