21st Birthday

Hi Everyone,

I have a couple of cards to show you today that I made for our daughters 21st recently, for the card from me and her dad I used the LOTV 'Jasmine Texting' as it reminded me so much of her...we are always saying that her phone is superglued to her hand !... Lol

The papers I used are from Etsy, the number dies are Stamping Up and I cut them from kraft and then gave a liberal coating of Wink of Stella which actually shows up quite well in the photo. The sentiments are LOTV too and the flowers Sue Wilson dies...I wish in hindsight I had left the flowers off as they dont look right :( but she liked it anyway.

The next card I made for our little granddaughter to give her mum....

I used a Digistamp Boutique image 'Mothers Love' the little girl is a bit older than my granddaughter as she is only 2 but I just loved the image when I saw it so decided to go with it anyway. I merged the image with another DB digi 'Flower Border'.........I am a bit embarrassed about my colouring on this card as it all looks a bit flat...that grass is atrocious ! I hadn't done any colouring in months and clearly need a bit of practice to get back into it.

The papers are Etsy and Tactile Studio, the sentiment computer generated, I added a seam binding bow and some Memory Box butterflies.

I have been spending this week sorting out my craft room as it had got completely out of hand while I have been laid up, because its the first room off the kitchen hubby tends to come in the back door into the kitchen and then anything he has brought into the house (usually from his shed/man cave) that doesn't have a home elsewhere tends to get dumped in my craft room.
Well now I am up and about again I have turfed it all back out and he is now barred from my room haha. Once I have it all sorted I will show a couple of pictures.

Thats all for now, thanks for looking

Your two cards are both brilliant and tailored so beautifully to the recipients. I love all the pink girliness of the first card and those sparkly numbers are gorgeous. The second card is one I can't help but smile at because the image is so adorable and the colours are beautiful :-)
I hope you have a good old sort out in YOUR craft room and get it how you want it; pics are a great idea as I love to see where other people craft!
Big hugs, Kat xx

Two fabulous cards, I would never have noticed the grass if you hadn't pointed it out! Don't be so hard on yourself. Glad to hear you're feeling a little better. Cara x
