Birthday Girl

Hello to everyone,

Can't belive that this week my baby girl turned 15, I still remember her as a tiny little thing bellowing for her bottle.  But 15, where have the years gone.  Now she is taller than me (ok not hard) much smarter and twice as lippy.  Anyway I had to make her a card, and as I was just itching to try out my new Molly Blooms Summer stamps range, just recieved and not even stamped, they had to be incorpriated.Here it is......................

It is a centre step as I wanted a bit of depth between the girls and the windmill.  I will put a few other pictures on the Birthday card page and the template when I get chance.  So have a go it is rather easy.  Beth loved it so it was worth all the colouring and cutting out.

Hope it inspires you to have a go, as it looks really effective
Best Wishes

Steam comming off my Promarkers, or what do you do when you only have an hour to get a card in the post.

Hello again,

This week has been a bit manic as I discovered that it was my nephews first birthday on Monday and I hadn't even started a card for him. Where did that year go?? To make it worse, boys cards are my nemisis and I tend to take ages on them.  So for help I turned to my favorite Molly Blooms stamp range and Clare Rowlands new magazine Birthday Parade.  I only had an hour to get it into the post so simplified a card shown in there, I was rather pleased with the results, and it just goes to show that I can make a card very quickley if I have to. Still I would rather have a bit more warning next time, so I must get my calender organised, accually I must find my calendar!!!  Thank goodness for facebook..........

I just loved the cupcake with the one candle as it gave it a bit of depth, it was also free with the magazine which made this a very economical card.  I have put the full details of how I put it together on my Birthday cards page so take a look at how I finished it off inside. I think I am into making boys cards now.

Hope it gives you a bit of inspiration, Best wishes Maria
