Birthday Time

Published by under cards,general chat,punch art

I’ve had Justine Clarke’s song in my head all day after my 5yo DD called me in to watch it on Nick Jnr this morning:

It’s my birthday today
I’m older than yesterday
All my friends are coming over to play
And they’ll all sing Happy Birthday
                                        ®Justine Clarke – It’s My Birthday Today, from “I Like to Sing” (2005)

 

And it really is my birthday too! I got some lovely cards in the post today… aren’t they gorgeous?

Thanks to Janine, Jen, Keah and Juliana for your beautiful cards and to everyone else who sent me good wishes today.

And check out this *very* cute little fella. This is an elf that my newest team member Alicia whipped up today off the top of her head. Isn’t it amazing what you can do with a few punches and some imagination! Thanks Alicia for letting me post it here on the blog. (He’s not quite finished – yep, there’s no mouth or nose yet, but he’s sooooo cute isn’t he!?)

Punches used: 5 Petal flower punch, circle punches, Three For You punch (from Punch Box).

Have a great day!

Welcome to my *new* blog

Published by under general chat

Here it is, my brand new blog (with extras!). Hey thanks for stopping by. A big huge ‘thank you’ to Sarah from IndecisiveMe for helping me get this going and for being oh so patient with my many – and I mean, many – questions. You’re a gem, Sarah 🙂

If you’re new to this blog I hope you’ll come back often as I share cards, scrapbook pages and 3D “off the page” projects made from Stampin’ Up!’s gorgeous range of papercrafting products. I plan to post a couple of times a week. My old blog is still available if you want to revisit something.

Feel free to leave a comment at any time, either at the end of a post or by emailing me. I’d love to hear from you. Happy stamping!
