I love sharing creations by my SU! groupies … and thought I would share a couple of cards that Skye got for her birthday recently! Of all the cards she received … all but two were hand made – how special was that! (2 were shop bought … and 2 were created on the computer!)
These two cards were so pretty …
The first is the one Christine (my sis) created for Skye. What a sweet colour combination! Christine has used some lovely Apricot Appeal Patterns DSP to create the background and has stamped the butterflies with Apricot appeal & Pumpkin Pie. This is such a gorgeous set … Flight of the Butterfly … and I although I did resist for quite some time … I actually got this set a couple of weeks ago. And … GUESS WHAT!!! A blog friend from the US (Michelle) has let me know that in the brand new US catalogue that was released on Jul 1 … there is a PUNCH that fits this stamp set!!! How cool!!! A butterfly punch!!!! Yay!!! 😀 😀 I have now officially started my wish list for the 2010/2011 IB&C … even though it will not be available until September next year!!! Perhaps if we wish hard enough … this butterfly punch might be included in one of our mini catalogues released between now and September??? Did I tell you that in our Spring Mini there is an oval scallop punch??? Yep! Very nice! And … VERY SATISFYING!!! Being a demo … I get to preorder … and have mine already!!! I am planning to hold a CARD BUFFET in August … so you can all see what is available in the new mini catalogue. So … keep watching for dates … I will let you know once this is finalised! And … once I am back from hols … I will post some samples using some of the new products … so keep watching for that too!!!
This card was one given to Skye by my mum … but … I do think this may have also been made by Christine??? I dunno why … but often you can see a certain “style” coming through in an individual’s creations. And … I know how much Christine just LOVES blue!!! 😉 So … let’s see if I can work out all the colours etc … hhhmmm … a little tricky all those blues!!! The DSP … I think … is Spring Silhouettes … but I’m not absolutely sure about that!!! And … I am pretty sure the two blue cardstock/ink colours are Soft Sky & Blue Bayou. I am pretty sure that Grandma added the “17” stickers herself. Cute Cute Cute!!!
Skye had a really happy day … topped off by a surprise visit by her boyfriend from Q’ld! Isn’t he just the sweetest!!! 😉 It did end up being a very busy weekend … lots of school work (important assessments for Yr 11) … eisteddfod performance … but … I do think she had a happy time! No longer sweet sixteen!!! How can we stop them from growing up???? 😦
