Coffee and Friends

Evening. I hope you're enjoying your Friday evening. I thought I'd pop by and share the card I made for Cass - it was her birthday on Monday but I wasn't going to the cabin until last night so have been unable to share!

I've used an Uptown Girls stamp but I've cropped it down a wee bit. I paper pieced the dresses and mug and if anyone ever tells you that's a good idea then it's not, especially for the girl on the right of the mug!

Moving Along With The Times Challenge


Morning all.

It's time for a new challenge at Moving Along With the Times.

This week our theme is

A Stitch In Time

I've used Billie is 10 from Ladybug Crafts Ink for today's card. This was made for a friend's daughter whose birthday party we went to a couple of weeks ago.  I actually made the card in the time between returning from the Sunday School trip and going to the party so I hope you're impressed! 

I went with shades of brown and cream and if I had had a bit more time I might have used some Glossy Accents on the wee chocolate heart decorating the cupcake.

Continuing the School Theme

Morning all.

It seems like a good idea to share all of the school cards so that next year (unlike this) I will not be sharing cards that were made a whole year (and more) ago. 

So this is one from this year. My friend Sandra's daughter started high school this year and this kinda looks a wee bit (if you squint slightly) like Emma. Well, she wears glasses and has blonde hair! I've kept it simple but I've paper pieced her book.

The Birthday of a Genius

Hello

We had our annual Sweet Stampin' meet at Edinburgh Zoo on Saturday and while we were there we celebrated the birthdays (which were actually yesterday) of Abi and Cass.  Now Abi is known as our resident genius and some time ago I bought this fab Tiddly Inks image which I had never used so Abi's birthday was the perfect opportunity to break it out!!
