Friend's 50th Birthday Card

Friend 50th

This is a card I made for a friend who was 50 on the weekend, her boyfriend surprised her with a party, which she knew nothing about, but she was so pleased and we had a fabulous evening.

I made this easel card, which in real life is a bit softer, the pink isn't quite so bright, but the sun was actually shining when I took the pic and it's slightly overexposed.

Here's the details (all SU!):
Stamps - Vintage Vogue and Fun & Fast Notes (sentiment)
Cardstock - Rose Red; Whisper White
DSPs - Sweet Pea

Buttons from stash
"50" cut out on Cricut

I'm glad to say she was thrilled with the card too!

Finally a card!

Best Friends

Where have the last two weeks gone? It's just whizzed by and all my promises of keeping up with my blog (and everyone elses) have just not happened!!

But here I am, a day late, with my DT card for Craftalicious, our theme this week is Purple & Green, which is a great combo, chosen by Tasha.

I've used a Mo Manning stamp on my card, as once again, my printer is still playing up & so I couldn't use one of the digi's that our sponsor "Some Odd Girl" gave us. I've coloured my image with ProMarkers & SU! markers and the rest is all SU! as follows:

Cardstock - Perfect Plum; Old Olive; Whisper White
Stamps - Very Vintage wheel; Fun & Fast notes (sentiment)
DSP - Sweet Pea

Other - Martha Steward punch

Hope you can join us again at Craftalicious & a big effort will be made on the blogging front!!

One Card for 2 DTs

Sunflower Fairy

Bit of a cheat this week as I just ran out of time, I've started working again and I need to get myself back into a routine as I don't seem to have time for anything at the moment!

So I thought my one card make this week would do for both DTs, our challenge at Craftalicious this week is "Swirls and Pearls" and over at Charisma the challenge is to make an easel card.

I used one of the decoupage sheets from "The Crafty Purple Frog" who are sponsoring us at Craftalicious but I've just used the base layer rather than decoupaging as being short on time this was the quickest option.

I've used the lovely Summer Sun cardstock from SU to go with the sunflowers on the image and my favourite Chocolate Chip as well.

The swirls I've stamped with an odd stamp I found in my stash as were as the two pearl hearts, the flowers have been stamped and punched out.

Here's the SU details:

Stamps - One of a Kind (flower) and Oval All (sentiment)
Punches - Oval; Scalloped Oval; Boho Blossoms
Cardstock - Summer Sun; Chocolate Chip; Whisper White
Ribbon - Chocolate Chip

Hope you can join in with either or both challenges this week & TFL!

Teddy Bear

Forever Friends Chocolate

This is my DT card for Charisma this week, which is all about teddy bears.

I couldn't use the lovely digi we were given as my printer still wasn't working (finally fixed today - hooray) and I discovered I had a distinct lack of teddy bears in my crafting stash! But I did manage to find some Forever Friends stickers and they're definitely teddy bears!

Stampin' Up! used:
Sentiment - Best Yet in Chocolate Chip ink
Cardstock - Whisper White; Chocolate Chip
Punches - 1 3/8" circle, scalloped circle
Ribbon - Chocolate Chip

Other - DSP - Forever Friends, card candy from stash

Hope you can join us this week & thanks for looking!
