It's My Boy's Birthday Today

Morning everyone, Becky here today. Twelve years ago today I became a mam, and fell hopelessly in love with my son, and everyday I become more and more proud of this lovely young man that I brought into the world. The card that I have today is the card that I have made for him...

I have used the same sheet of DP from Maja design, just rotated it by 90° to make this effect, the sheet that I have used is Pocket Square from Denim & Friends.

The clipboard is from the Magnolia Halloween Kit, and I can see this getting a lot of use! I have also used the Galaxy Lace die, I love how this works for both male and female cards.

And, again I have used the Jute die behind the image.

Tonight I am taking my boy out for a steak, and a custard cream birthday cake :)

Halloween Kit


Today we are joining with Shawn from Magnolia-licious as already Shawn has been the owner here for over a year!!

Today Tamara, Liz and I from Swedish House Crafts are showing our designs using items from the Halloween Kit, available from HERE

Make sure you pop around our blogs and leave a comment as on SHC's first birthday, on 5th November, someone will win some Gummiapan goodies.

I have coloured Toothache Tilda with my distress reinkers, and used the tooth tag die and tablet bottle dies too from the kit. The shape of the card has been cut using a die from an earlier Doohickey club kit.

I have used a 'Get well soon' die from Gummiapan, available HERE, these dies cut like a dream, I have also used a Gummiapan die to cut Tilda out, it is one of the Nesting Stitched Ovals.

And here it is in close up.

Unusually for me I only have two flowers on here, a white curled flower and a vintage white flower.

And here is the tooth die.

Thank you for popping by, and remember to check out the blog you will see the goodies up for grabs.

Birthday Boy

Morning everyone, Becky here with you this morning, with a card that I have been asked by a work friend to make for her brother.

She told me that he supports West Brom, so I immediately thought of this image in these colours, and the papers from Denim and Friends are perfect. I have used the 12x12 POCKET SQUARE and STARS AND STRIPES. I have alos used some sheets from the 6X6 PAPER PAD.

Behind the image I have used the Doohickey JUTEand I have used the GALAXY STAR LACE too.

I have also used the CELEBRATION STARS to keep the star theme going.

I do like using the 6x6 sheets that have a lot of blank space for the inside of cards.

Thanks for popping by,

Sweet Pants Tilda

Morning everyone, Becky here with you this morning. Autumn is fast approaching us here in the UK, with dark nights and mornings, and getting cold, and SOOO not my favourite time of the year. I like late spring with all of the flowers coming out.

I have made todays card with papers from Pion Design's Where The Roses Grow collection.

SWEET PANTS TILDA has been coloured with distress reinkers, I think her little bunches are so cute. I have used three sheets of Pion Design papers, ROSE PATCH, IN THE GARDEN and also ROSE MEADOW.

Here is a close up off Tilda, I find colouring with DI's sometimes involves a bit of luck how things turn out, this time her hair worked lovely for me :)

Here I have used a leaf that comes with the VINTAGE WHITE PAPER FLOWERS WITH LEAVES and one of my favourites, WHITE PAPER FLOWERS WITH CURLS.

Tucked behind Tilda is one of my new dies, and one that I think you will see a lot of, its from Gummiapan and is called Hens Net.

Have you seen all of the new flowers that Suha has? You really have to keep checking as she sneaks them in without us knowing, lol! I have used some more leaves and also a flower from the VINTAGE WHITE FLOWERS WITH LEAVES. GLISTENING WHITE FROZEN POMEGRANATE the red ones of these will be perfect for Christmas cards. There is also a CHERRY BLOSSOM, a STRIPED LIGHT PINK FADED FLOWER, a BABY PINK PAPER FLOWER and another WHITE PAPER FLOWER WITH CURLS.

And here is my arty shot so that you can see all of the layers.

Thank you for popping by,
