More Birthdays!

July - September is chock full of birthdays amongst my family & friends. I spent a lovely day yesterday making cards, mixed in with a bit of washing & cleaning. For the first one, I CASEd a card from p13 of the IB&C, changing the stamp set, papers and colours. I embossed images from the 'Upsy Daisy' stamp set with white embossing powder on 'Baja Breeze Patterns' DSP. I was quite happy with how it turned out. The pearls are from Kaisercraft, they have a great range of stick on half pearls & gems.

I CASEd the 2nd card from Teneale Williams, though her card is stunning. I do not know how she does such perfect bows. I changed the colours around, as my friend really likes blues. I used the 'Great Friend' stamp set & the co-ordinating 'Summer Love' rub-ons, also from the new mini. Don't know how I'll cope come November, when the mini is no more. I went looking for my clear buttons when I saw my box of 'Build-Brads' (B-a-B), so went with that instead. I stamped the little heart from 'Cheep Talk' for the image. I love B-a-B, such a great idea.

I made another card for a very good male friend who is turning 40 soon (I keep telling him how old he is, but he is really only 10.5 months older than me). I won't show it yet as my friend, & upline, is also very good friends with Ian & I don't want to spoil it. Will have to remember to show it in September. Still have to make another male card yet, as my group of mates are holding a 3-1 birthday night out next week. Better get shopping too!

Must go & get ready as am back at work tonight. Hoping for a 'not too crazy' shift.
Catch ya,

Hi Fiona,

I really like the effect of embossing Upsy Daisy on the DSP, it makes for a really elegant card.
