R is for Rocking Horse

Since I started as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I have been so busy with workshops and making cards I have been neglecting my scrap albums. Last night Julie popped over and we did a bit of scrapbooking. Here is the 'R' page of an ABC album I'm doing of Mitchell. I used Best Friends uppercase alphabet for 'Rocking Horse', Best Friends lowercase for 'is for' and the 'r' was stamped with Schoolbook Serif alphabet. The cute baby on the rocking horse is from the Greetings Galore stamp set. The photos are from his first birthday.

All in the Family

Hi there,

I've been out of action for a while with a bad dose of the flu but am back feeling much better. I thought I'd show you a card I made with my new stamp set 'All in the Family'. It's for my dear friend Dawn's youngest, Mason who has just turned 2.

Snow Globe

Here is the card I made for the birthday girl on Saturday. Sorry but the snow globe is from a retired set that is no longer available. I coloured it using watercolour crayons and a blender pen for the castle and Bashful Blue ink and an aqua painter for the glass itself, a bit hard to see on here. The 'Happy Birthday' is from the Pretty Princess set and the number 5 is from the Best Friends number set. The card colours are Elegent Eggplant, Perfect Plum and Pale Plum. I used the scallop punch and a couple of circle punches and pierced holes in the scallop. The brads are some that I picked up at the Quilt and Craft show last month.

I did do a card for the birthday boy from todays party but it was late last night and I forgot to take a photo this morning.

Busy Weekend

What a busy weekend it has been. Mitchell had his golf lesson on Saturday morning, which he loves. This was followed by a gymnastics birthday party which was loads of fun. Then today he had a party at a play centre for another of his kinder friends. I don't know about him, but I'm exhausted.
