Anyone who knows me … knows that I have 3 kids’ birthdays within 6 days in January. Yes … not well planned … immediately after Christmas … but the kids love it because the January sales are on … and so they get more value for their pressies! Stacey & Shane had their 27th/25th respectively on Monday … and Sheree’s 23rd is this Saturday. I haven’t given Shane his card yet … because he is in Canada at the moment. But I thought I would share Stacey’s with you today!
I finally inked up my new SU! “Flowering Flourishes” stamp set to use with the Verve “Beautiful Kindness” butterflies. It was the perfect finishing touch to fill in some spaces that looked a bit bare. I can see this set is going to be really useful! The colouring is done with my Prismacolour Pencils … and I added some Stardust Stickles to the butterflies for a subtle bling effect! It was such a fun card to make! Because I had such a long run of male birthday cards over the last couple of months … it was so nice to be doing something pretty! The big butterfly on the ribbon is hand cut & added with dimensionals. Did you notice my new little “Dainty Bows” die? Isn’t it precious! This set has two different sizes of bows. Such a professional look for a hand made card! Sweet addition!
Gav & I have 3 days/nights without kids. It is soooooo weird! There have been several times this holiday season that we have been ‘kidless’! I know 1 got married in December (& 1 6 years ago) … and that only left 3 at home … BUT … it is ridiculous to think that the other 3 have disappeared so quickly too! I am definitely not used to the quiet! Perhaps I will find some time for stamping????? Until next time ……..
