A Rosey Pink Birthday Card

Well it's been a while since I had chance to post one of my makes, so here we go!

My Mum asked me to make a special card for her Aunty's 80th Birthday and this is what I came up with. I went with a flowery spring theme to brighten our recenty rainy days! I added a big bow with pearl pins for a touch of luxury and added pearls, gems and a charm to bling it up a bit.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Joanna Sheen - Flower Power
Stamptacular Sunday - Spring Bling
Dream Valley - For a Special Lady
Paper Sundaes - Ribbons & Pearls
Moving Along with the Times - Garden or Flowers
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
Pennys - Happy Birthday
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Crafts for Eternity - Spring

Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday

Hello all, well I missed last week's WOYWW as I had the dreaded flu bug :o( however I'm back this week and feeling much better! I haven't done alot of crafting while I was unwell, but I'm back into things now, I've nearly finished the "roller skating" themed card that I started for an order some time ago, it just needs a few pearls etc to finish it off.

You will also see, proped up at the back, I've had another go at a sunset using distress inks and a lovely new dandelion stamp. I'm really pleased with the results, just need to get round to using it on a card!

Thanks for stopping by, I'm off to take a look at some desks over at Julia's. Have a great day x

What's Your Workdesk Wednesday???

Ok.... I'm sure it was only Wednesday yesterday... how can it be Wednesday again today??!! The long Easter weekend is now behind us :o( I had a lovely weekend, but it went way too fast even though I had an extra couple of days off.

This week you will see the stamps that I was awaiting last week have arrived! Yay! and I finished off my first attempt at a sunset silhouette image, I'm much happier with it now, I still think with a bit of practice they will look better but I am happy with it and will use it on a card. There is also the beginnings of a card, I have been asked of a Roller Boot themed card, so that's a bit of a challenge.... and the pink ribbon... well that looks like a challenge too :o) The brown paper bag has some new ribbon in which I picked up whilst shopping with my Mum over the weekend, a market stall has bundles of 3m ribbon for 50p so I always get a few as I'm not in town very often :o)

That's it from me, I'll be heading over to Julia's to take a sneaky peak at some more desks, thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day x

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday??

Round to another Wednesday and 4 days off work for Easter is on the horizon :o) Yay!!

Ok... so maybe this week there are a few more Distress Inks on my desk... hmm just 3 didn't last long did it! I wanted to have a go at some sunset scene's so I ordered some inks and silhouette stamps, although my stamps haven't arrived yet so I've just been having a play with the inks, this is my first attempt, I'm not 100% happy with it but I think once it has some stamps over the top and trimmed down a bit it will look ok. But I'm happy for my first go, just hope my stamps arrive soon!
And look what was on my desk at the end of last week :o) my wonderful candy from fellow WOYWWer Sarah, thanks so much, just got to get my thinking cap on and get using them!
That's it for this week, I'm off over to Julia's to take a look at some more desks. Have a great day. x
