A Surprise Birthday Card


Chloe has a surprise birthday party for a friend tomorrow, and I’ve almost cleaned out my stash of cards.  I needed to come up with a card for Charlotte and since inspiration was lacking I have combined two challenges to create this card.  The first challenge was Colour Q #119 using Pretty in Pink, Going Gray, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo and Whisper White.  The second challenge was Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge #367.  Here they both are 🙂

Stamps: Pennant Parade, Delicate Doilies, Outlined Occasions (Sale-a-bration set, available Jan 25)

Paper: Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Subtles stack DSP

Ink: Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Pretty in Pink, Going Gray

Other: Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Petite Pennants punch, White Baker’s Twine, Blender Pen.

This gorgeous greeting set will be available during Sale-A-Bration – Jan 25 ~ March 31.  Isn’t it cute???




Kim’s Birthday Card and a sneak peek!


Don’t fall off your chair there 🙂  Yes, I’m actually posting a card on my blog today.

This is the first card I have made since my last post almost 3 months ago.  I couldn’t get away with choosing a birthday card for Kimberley from my stash since she has seen them all.   I had some brand new goodies to play with too which made this card lots of fun.  As I was unwell and left my card making until the last minute, I have cased the design for Kim’s card from Nichole Heady’s blog.  I saw a card very similar to this a few months back and loved it.

Some of the items I’ve used are from the brand new Stampin’ Up! catalogue which begins on September 1st.  If you would like a copy to drool over, please email me.
