Sixteenth Birthday

Another 16th birthday card for one of my daughter's friends.  The topper is from a Hunkydory paper pad and I glittered the edges using a Quickie Glue Pen and Glamour Dust.  The cardstock is Hunkydory and I made the 'card candy' from the same card.  The sentiment and numbers have been cut in black Hunkydory Adorable Scorable card and both use dies by Crafter's Companion.  This is my first entry to challenge 50 on the Crafty Friends Challenge Blog which was simply called Girly!

Make One Christmas Card a Week for 2017

I joined a Facebook group where the aim is to make one Christmas card every week throughout the year.  I joined a little late so I had to play catch up and make 4 cards in a week.

I turned to my favourite little bears - luckily with the weather having been so cold and frosty of late it was fairly easy to get into the Christmas spirit - I'm not sure it will be so easy when the sun is shining and the temperature hits 30 degrees (you have to be hopeful don't you!).

First post for 2017

After a really difficult 2016 I'm back!  I made the cards I needed to last year but didn't photograph many as everything was upside down and back to front due to having a house extension built, which is much larger than I thought it was going to be.

This card was made for one of my daughter's friends - they're all turning 16 so I've become quite expert at 16th cards recently! 

The focal image is from the Hunkydory Little Book of Milestone birthdays - it's amazing how these Little Books are far more versatile than you initially think.  I embossed a piece of light blue Adorable Scorable cardstock with an Embossalicious embossing folder and matted it onto a darker shade of Adorable Scorable.  The butterflies and sentiment are from Sara's Signature collections (Butterfly Lullaby and Birthday) and I added some sparkle to the numbers with some Stickles (every 16 year old girl loves a bit of sparkle!)
