Hi everyone, my first card of today and it's my DT card for Lili's Little Fairies the theme this week is '2 Backing Papers'.

It's my brother's birthday on 12th January so I decided to use this opportunity to make a card for him. Last year my mam's funeral was on the 13th and we lost my dad a few hours after, so my brother has decided to celebrate his birthday in July. But, I became a sister on 12th January so I was going to make him a card anyway, I stamped and cut out the 'Happy Birthday Brother' sentiment, and when I went for it it had vanished. I did look for it for a while, but then thought there was something more going on here, so I'll be making and giving him another card in July.

I've coloured Ooops with my distress markers, and used glossy accents on the vase.

The papers are Assembly Too from Nitwit, and the edges have been distressed with Walnut Stain ink.

I don't do CAS cards, and I find it hard to stop and I never feel as if they're finished.




  1. Lovely card Becky !!

    hugs Astrid

  8. Oooh hun, such a cute card. It must be so hard for both of you at this time. I can so understand why he wants his birthday on a different day. Bug Hugs hunni. Jen xx

  9. That is exactly how I feel about CAS cards, they don't look or feel finished if it is mine, others are beautiful. I love this card that you did for your brother. It is such beautiful coloring and love the image. You did a great job and your card looks perfect to me.

  10. Love this card hun, such a cute LOTV image and you've coloured him perfectly! Great card for a lil' dude. Hugs, Wends xxxx

  11. Was sorry to read your bro's birthday coincides with such a heartbreaking day for you both. One of my closest friends mama's passed away on her hubby's birthday! Which will remain forever bittersweet, but we can remember the ones we've lost with love and yet still celebrate the ones still with us. Thinking of you both and hoping your bro' can enjoy his birthday despite the sad connection. Hugs, Wends xxxx

  12. Oh, so sorry to hear that, Becky, it must be very hard for both of you. A friend of mine also lost her mum last year on her daughter's 5th birthday. Thinking of you at this difficult time.


    P.S. So you do know how to do CAS after all. :-)
