Love Birds

Hello again,

Today I am sharing one of the cards I made for my brother and sister-in-law’s first wedding anniversary, which was almost a month ago... where did that time go?...

Last year not long after their wedding one of my Aussie card making magazines arrived with this very cute and wonderfully coloured image from Ppinky Dolls, called love in the air, which my Mum felt would make a perfect anniversary card for them, as at the reception they had a large bird cage card holder and lots of antique bird cages sprayed in various colours hanging from the ceiling with vines and fairy lights, their wedding cake also had bride and groom birds on it…

Here’s my card:-



What I used:-
14cm Square card blank
Derwent Academy Pencils
Lily of the Valley Bonnets & Bowties paper pack
Silver glitter card
Bella! Droplets
MFT Pierced oval die
Stamp sets various cover gifts & Kaisercraft Mini Clear stamp set
Memory box Sketchbook ‘Love’ die

Friends Birthday

Hello again,

I’m sure that many of you are asked to make cards for friends by relatives and today I am sharing a card I made for one of my Mum’s friends birthday, Mum and her friend met many years ago when my older brother started at preschool, think early eighties, both recognised the other but it was not until they got talking that they realised why… They had both worked pre-kids in the centre of Sydney, my Mum in a bank and her friend at a supermarket nearby, one serving the other back in the day when shoppers were handed the goods they asked for, not just picked them off the shelves themselves; they have remained friends since they met all those years ago.

Mum's request was for something feminine as her friend had four sons and her hubby, girlie is something she doesn't get often. 

Here’s my card:-



What I used:-
White 5” x 7” card blank
Bugaboo Fancy Rose Vase image
Derwent & Faber-Castell pencils
Pearlescent Black & white chevron paper
Pink card stock
Grey card stock
Merci vintage woodland textured paper
Impression Obsession Border Duo set 1
MFT Pierced fishtail flags
MFT Pierced circle die
Ultimate Crafts Jadene: Happy Thoughts Butterfly
Marianne Design Craftables Basic Round with lacy edge
Spell binders m-bossabilities Splendid 5x7”
Silver Stickles
Black Colorbox cats eye ink pad
Adhesives:- Double-sided tape, Foam tape, PVA Glue
Stanley knife, steel ruler, craft mat
