Froggy Birthday Wishes

Started out making this card for a friends son's birthday but sort of turned out a bit girly so made him something else instead. Love this little froggy guy. This was for colour challenge 145 on splitcoasters. I was inspired to make this card by AudreyAnn on this site although hers is much nicer.
Materials used are: Unfrogettable, For A Friend (Hostess), cardstock in elegant eggplant, wild wasabi, so saffron, whisper white and some watercolour paper. Wild wasabi ribbon.
Date for upcoming stamp club is Friday 30th January at 7pm contact me for your reservation!

Bucket of Balls

I made this card for my brothers birthday and I cased an idea that I saw in rdooly's gallery over on splitcoaststampers. I used my cuttlebug to give texture to the balls and my new cricut machine that my hubby bought me as an early birthday pressie for the lettering. Thought it was appropriate as he is a golfer.

Have been trying to do a bit of scrapbooking over the break (when I haven't been working). Honestly the box of photos in the cupboard seems to get bigger and bigger and most of the photos are stored digitally now! Love the simply scrappin kits for my scrapbook pages especially for themed albums as everything coordinates so nicely.

Hope you are all crafting heaps.

Today is my little man's birthday. Happy 2nd birthday Oscar. We have spent the day down at the beach and he had a ball. Thought he would be scared of the water but dove straight in. Had to pull him out a few times and he was pretty water logged by the time we left. Tonight is just dinner with the family and more presents I don't doubt. He thinks he is getting a present everyday since Christmas! Thought an Oscar card was appropriate and he is getting an Oscar cake too which I will post a photo of later.

Happy Birthday Ben

Hi everyone here is a card I made for a friends little boy who is turning 8 today. Happy birthday Ben. This was for CC161 and SC208 over on splitcoaststampers. As you can tell I like to partake in these challenges quite a bit. I find they inspire me.

Hope you all had a good new year. It was a late one for us and I think I'm just recovering. Looking forward to getting into Sale-A-Bration with lots of free stamp sets to earn! Contact me if you want more details.

Off to make some more projects and wrap some pressies as it is my little man's birthday tomorrow. Can't believe he will be 2!

Happy crafting.
