Happy Birthday Bridgette!

It is my youngest daughter Bridgette's 19th birthday today! I don't know where the years have gone?! Bridgette is also the mother of my only grandchild Kyla Rose. She is an amazing mummy and I couldn't be more proud of her. 

Here's the card that I made for her birthday:

There's a little pop up feature too...

Stamp set: Painted Petals (OC), Papillon Potpourri, Memorable Moments
Card: Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride
InkRich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride, Wild Wasabi, Melon Mambo
Designer Paper: Painted Petals
Accessories: Dazzling Details
Tools: Ovals Collection Framelits, Big Shot, Butterfly punch, 

I'm heading away today so we celebrated all day on Saturday and had a wonderful time together. It started with a boxfit class {phew} at 9am, followed by a delicious brunch. We then browsed some shops and then about mid afternoon, had a very relaxing massage. So much so, that we both fell asleep. Even if you don't fall asleep while having a massage, you always look like you do, because while you lie face down, your face is squashed into that little hole.... We had a good laugh and hoped neither of us had dribbled while sleeping because we may have dribbled onto the masseuse's feet! We partook in a bit more shopping and then we had a high tea, overlooking the beautiful Auckland waterfront. We finished off by going to the Ed Sheeran concert last night, at the Vector Arena - it was a perfect ending to a perfect day.  

Bridgette, I hope that your birthday is the beginning of a wonderful year - filled with family, friends, love and laughter. Love you to the moon and back xxx

Guy Greetings

It seems that I never seem to have a masculine card when I need it. I usually like to design the card with the male in mind but on this occasion, I haven't done that. This is one of the cards we made at my Masculine card class over the weekend. It's clean and simple, but I think it's a winner. I didn't really take to the stamp set Guy Greetings when I first laid eyes on it. But, after a period of time (a few days at most) - I really began to see it's potential. Especially since it has quite a few greetings as well. I found this card on Pinterest and cased it from Sandy Mathis. Nothing too hard about it at all. 

Stamp set: Guy Greetings (OC)
Card: Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Very Vanilla
Designer Paper: Newsprint Designer Series Paper
Ink: Black Staz On
Accessories: 2" Circle Punch

I'm repeating this class on Wednesday evening and there are still spaces available if you want to come along. Email me to register. 

Enjoy the rest of your short week.

Happy Easter

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter with fun, friends, family and lots of chocolate! 

These cute little boxes were made from the Curvy Keepsakes box die which has been carried over into the Occasions catalogue. I've cased the idea from Zoe Tant who is a demonstrator from the UK. There are loads of ideas using this little box on the Internet. You can make something for every occasion. 

Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Curvy Keepsake Box die, Googly Eyes (retired), Big Shot, Blossom Punch (for feet).

I had to share some ca-ute photos of my gorgeous 7 month old granddaughter Kyla and her first Easter. She came for a sleepover last night and what a fun time we had :-) 

Don't you love the bottom left photo?! She likes to show off her two new teeth. 

Enjoy the rest of your long weekend.
