Happy Birthday & Happy Anniversary

Time for Family birthdays again!

I was happy to find a little more cardmaking mojo after my previous card for Mandy, and tried a little experiment for the sister-in-law Rosa's birthday card.

I played with some Digital graphics from Creative Market  in Photoshop, added text and printed on linen cardstock.  Highlighted features with Kindy Glitz - quite happy with my result!



Then for brother-in-law Greg's birthday card, I returned to rubber stamping - stamping 3 candles from Kaisercraft birthday set multiple times, coloring in with sharpies and highlighting with Kindy Glitz, sentiment is black peel off stickers.



Then we come to their wedding anniversary - they got married on Rosa's birthday, so Greg has no excuse to forget LOL

I stuck with some simple stamping with Stampin' Up Little Bit of Happiness - Love stamp, stamped using Chocolate Chip - my all time fave Stampin' Up ink.  Sadly my little ink pads are starting to dry out and I am hoping to find some refills around the traps.  I used to think Stampin' Up stuff was expensive, but I have found them to be great quality stamps and the ink pads I have been using since 2008!  So I believe, if you look after them, they are great value for money!



All cardstock from Blue Edge Crafts.

Happy Birthday Mandy!

My friend Mandy, celebrated her 60th birthday recently.

A small group of us, myself, Cynthia from Cynthia's Ark, Beth from Huggies Crafts and Mandy from Blue Edge Crafts met up for a lunch at The Topiary Cafe.  The Topiary has been on my 'to do' list for quite some time.

the food was lovely, if a little pricey for me, but then I don't dine out very often, apart from a pub meals, so I am always surprised at the cost of meals & drinks at a restaurant!


Here is the card I made for Mandy - using a stamp/embossing set that came with
the Australian Papercraft Essentials magazine.  

and here is what I made Mandy for her birthday.  I recently did a class for this 'Tree of Life' at Need4Bead - and I can tell you I really enjoyed myself.  Below is what I made in class - you can see my tree has a bit of storm damage LOL


and this is Jelly Bean, who kept us company for a little while :)
