Sweet Wishes

Hi everyone,

How are we doing? It feels like ages since i've blogged or crafted, my beautiful boy takes up my time and I love it! Although I go back to work in a month! I am so nervous!!

Anyway, creations! I have a card I made to show you for a friends birthday, it uses some of the beautiful Pink Petticoat goodies!

Its a very girly card, for a very girly girl hehehe! The cherry paper is one of my favourites,  I don't use it enough! The image is from the Cupcakes collection HERE

I printed it out twice, coloured the base layer with promarkers and then cut out the cherry and the frosting. Coloured the cherry with pink and completely covered the frosting with glamourdust! Ooooo I love glamourdust!! 

I then tied some pink twine from the ribbon girls around the card and mounted it with pop dots onto the cherry paper! LUSH! 

Here is a close up of the gorgeous glamour dust! 

Anyway, I hope you like it! That's it from me tonight. 
Take care

A late Birthday

Its been a very busy couple of weeks in the Whittaker household and it has only just occured to me that I have forgotten to post my card for the next Lia Stampz challenge, you've still got a week to enter!!

The theme is BIRTHDAY!
Easy peasy, a great theme and easy to do! We got to work with the OH SO CUTE Balloon Bunny which you can buy over at Whimsy Stamps HERE.... alternatively enter our challenge and you could win it! Woo hooo!

I created this simple little card with the image!

Isn't it cute? I just knew I needed to print balloon bunny on to craft! The paper is created using a Miss Tiina overlay from the set and the balloon is coloured in Gimp! The sentiment is created in word using Cutie Patootie font, again by Miss Tiina! A couple of rounded corners and we're done!

I do hope you can join us in our challenge!
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Catered Crop: Use White
Corrosive Challenge Blog: Birthday!
Great Impressions: Animals!

Take care,
