A Birthday Umbrella


Birthday Umbrella BL'13 (4)

Hi bloggies!

Delving back into my files for another card to share! This one also has a card recipe! (I still have several to share that have recipes already prepared!) I am beginning to work a lot more with dies … and this little umbrella one is super adorable!! [CASE via Pinterest Debbie Carriere (MFT stamps)]

Birthday Umbrella BL'13 (2)

This die is from My Favourite Things and the little sweet flower punch is an oldie that I have had in my craft stash for years … and Birthday Umbrella BL'13 (5)I only recently pulled it out when we did a mini reno in my craft room and I had to ‘cull’ stuff that would no longer fit and was no longer useful! I couldn’t bear to part with this little cutie! (set of 3 sizes) The little key charm was an afterthought … but I think it looks really sweet!  I loved working with these pretty colours!

I have already shared this next creation on my Pinterest Board … but thought I would show my blog friends the Christmas tags I made for last Christmas! I made about 40 of these! The looked so gorgeous under the tree!

Christmas 2013 (4)

Sorry … no recipe! 😦 The stamp was a single release from SU! called “Be Merry”. It coordinates with the Chalk Talk Framelits … and Christmas 2013 (2)these tags came together really quickly. The snowflake punch is another ‘oldie’. Crumb Cake card & Whisper White Ink!

I will need to take some photos to show you my new craft area! We converted my craft room into a walk in store / pantry / craft room. It has meant my craft area is much smaller … but it looks great … and has enabled me to declutter my house and get rid of some furniture to give us more space. The store room is fantastic! I love it!

Well … I can only sit at the computer for short periods at the moment … so I will get going. (Shingles pain is quite annoying! … But I am very thankful that I don’t have a severe case!) See you all again soon!
