Dutch Girl Birthday

I went back to what I enjoy most for my card today and I've been wondering why I don't do it more often - basing what I make around a pretty paper set. I've had the Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl paper for ages and not really used it enough.

This is an eleventh hour entry to A Passion for Papertrey's challenge - use at least two flowers on your card and one Papertrey product. Here I've used Floral Frenzy stamps and some Ocean Tides ribbon. I distressed the edges with some vintage photo ink and added a few cream pearls from the SU Pretties Kit.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you've had a great weekend!

Birthday - Wishing You

This is a bright and bold card - for a bright and bold lady! My dear friend Lana turned 40 last week - congratulations Lana! Please excuse the poor photo taken on my office window sil in the gloom.

I used my new Octagonal Nestabilities here withthe PTI Wishing You stamp set. The paper and inks are a combo of New Leaf and Pure Poppy.

Father's Day

Sorry that I haven't posted for a while - I've been a bit poorly and my mojo has gone South I think!

I'm not sure it's good to make a Father's Day card when you're not feeling 100% but my dear Dad didn't hold it against me. As my mojo had deserted me I used a card from the Papertrey Ink forum gallery as my starting point and used the Everyday Classics stamp set from PTI for the stars - because my Dad is a real star :)
