The dsp are my minds eye lost breeze collection, doliy from my stash, dewdrops from mmcs , laces from stash and the sentiment is from my new paper smooches stampset whoo hoo.

MMCS CHALLENGE

Here is my entry into the challenge over at my mums craft shop challenge blog
The challenge is clean and simple so I pulled out my penny black' Betsy Bluebell' stamps and some lavender card stock, mixed in some silver mirri card and white ribbon. I was going to stop there but thought it needed something else and I have got the new hibiscus flower die from mft and it was screaming at me to use it LOL so I made it up and placed a purple flower in the middle from my stash.
I coloured using Copics and couldn't resist putting a bit of sparkle on the presents!

I have sold a lot of my crafting stash so  I can buy some new whoo hoo! The ribbon and flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. Gems and brads are Papermania. Butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch and the little flag I made with half a cocktail stick and a scrap of paper!
Hope your having a crafty day! I have been good and packaged all my parcels to post and I strimmed the back grass as well as prune the bushes and bag everything up all b4 lunch! and then the rain started so I came in and sorted out my kitchen and recycling! I don't think I have done so much boring house work in one day b4 LOL

CAKE ANYONE?


Hi All I have been so busy over the jubilee break that I don't have a card to share so I thought I'd share my dad's birthday cake LOL chocolate fudge cake yummy. We had a great laugh opening presents and eating cake it was gone in seconds, hopefully I will get a card done today as the heaven's have opened and I won't be going anywhere in that!







Here is a picture of my dad and son Jake, dad is looking at the Manchester City framed picture I brought him as one of his presents the caption should be 'wishful thinking' as dad is saying it should read not 2011/2012 winners but to infinity and beyond LOL you only won on goal difference dad!

HAPPY 60TH BIRTHDAY DAD!




Well the title says it all my lovely dad is 60 years young today

                  HAPPY BIRTHDAY

 and I'm lucky he doesn't know about computers because I'd be getting a right telling off telling you how old he is LOL
I made these two cards for him one from me and one from Jake and seeing how his football team won the premiership [ only on goal difference I'm a Utd fan!] so I used the colour blue and I'm even blogging in blue too!
We are having A surprise cake when he travels over to see us so I can't wait. I will post a picture as I will be taking loads to scrapbook and smash.
