Autumn Time Birthday

Evening peeps

Well I was really looking forward to a lay-in this morning until I got a phone call from my Mum last night asking me to go up to Orpington with her early this morning, she won't drive that far on her own.

That's fine I thought, I can get a lay-in tomorrow morning instead.  That is until I got a phone call earlier asking me to go to a charity coffee morning.  As much as my body is screaming for sleep, I can't say no to anything that's raising money for charity.


Anyway, I have made an Autumn / Halloween themed Birthday card to night.  The digital stamp is called Pumpkin Fun from Di's Digi Stamps and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.

You're A Star

Afternoon peeps

I take the mick out of my Mum all the time about her funny little ways, but one night this week, I realised I was starting pick up so of her traits.  Don't get me wrong, some of these would be a good thing to pick up, but the others have stopped her doing certain things because she is scared of picking up germs and she only seems to be getting worse with age.


Anyway, my card today is a very quick clean and simple card with a music theme.  The digital stamp is called Eve from Crafty Sentiments Designs and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.


Other materials used are:

White card stock
Pink card stock
Crafters Companion Seasonal Music embossing folder
Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry Distress ink pad
Laser cut musical notes
Glossy Accents
Pearl stars
