Birthdays Three (or is that four?)

Hi again,

My good friends have 3 birthdays in 3 days, four if you count Wes' twin sister Annette (and Netty, you certainly do count). They are having a party on the 15th May, so thought I'd better get cracking on some cards. I saw these cute kids cards on Andrea Walford's blog. She is a wonderful resource. I have been hangin' to use my new 'Lots of Bots' stamp set, it is so cute. I didn't get the 'Pony Party' set so went with 'Crazy for Cupcakes' for Livi. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out (best thing about CASEing, they usually turn out ok)!

Ethan's Card:

Livi's card:

Now Wes is into gardening and making their house look nice, so I thought I'd use the (now retired) SAB set 'Good Neighbours'. As usual, I CASEd the card, coming across the original here on the ever useful Splitcoast. I figured that a ribbon & bow weren't very 'manly' so I used a strip of DSP and one of the new pieces from the 'Soho Designer Hardware'. Very easy to apply using the 'Crop-a-dile'. i do wish I'd left off the sponging, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Well, I've also made a 'Get Well' & a 'Thinking of You' card, and still need to do Mother's Day' and two more birthdays. Phew. It is fun to be making cards for people though. While I love doing challenges, it is nice to actually plan a card with a particular person in mind.

Catch you soon with more cards,

Fi, I am so jealous. I am loving that paper, it is so cute. And these cards are amazing, I love that you are having fun creating. You are so good making all these cards in advance. It really is great creating with a purpose and doesn't it feel so good to either send out a handmade card or hand one to a friend.

Wonderful work, can't wait to see more.
