Special Birthday cards...

Banner Card...

There have been a few special birthdays at work, mine included!  I was 40, I wanted to do something that involved my little ones so bowling was the best option!  I don't think I have played for about 8 years apart from on the wii!  It was good fun and we all said we should get together and go there more often.

So I made this A4 card for a lovely lady who is always complimenting my artwork!  I was fed up of dreary winter so as it's nearly spring I went for the bright colour's.

The bunting is made with a Stamping Up punch, the green and blue flowery paper is First Edition Spring collection and the plain cardstock is bazzil basics.  The flower is made up with qvc petaloo brights and the 40 was cut out using my silhouette.  The smaller letters are a Tim Holtz die vintage market.  It is all edged with a baby blue ink pad.  I added a butterfly from spellbinders at the end but didn't get a picture!  I will get one though and add it on here later!  I loved the spring colours on this and even a few guys said how much they liked this one!

Another one, this time a 30th!  Very different though, my spellbinders have definitely arrived! Again A4 using cream bazzil and black A4 cardstock.  A couple of pins which I obtained from create and craft. The black ribbon was from my local craft shop and the feathers were donated to me ages ago from a colleague who obtained them from a party shop!  The gems are papermania. 

My boss kindly sent me an email with everyone's birthdays last week so now I had better get on with them now I have some advanced warning!    Also starting to work on things for a guest design team role with another blog website and I am trying to build up some stock to start up my business so no time for me to get up to any mischief at the moment!
