Happy Congratulations- Summer Style!

Hello to you!
I hope you are doing well? It was lovely here yesterday, sunny and warm, so we took the opportunity to go out for a while and went antique hunting in Boscombe, it was really good to get out for a bit but I did come home and get cracking on some of my craft room yesterday afternoon and evening; go to my FACEBOOK page for a sneaky look and for updates directly to your wall but I will do a full post tour once I have everything organised (and before it gets messy again!).
Alas the sun is gone now but I hope this card brings a little sunshine your way today ;-)
I used a colour combo of Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay, making an all bright and summery design with the fab Happy Congratulations stamp set...
 This yummy thick twine was a freebie with SAB (now finished sadly), 
Top Tip: You can obviously attach pre-tied bows with a glue dot but I stapled the twine to this card then tied a bow around the staple, this is a very secure way of adding thick-ish twine to a card, hth. 
 and a side view showing the raised panel on the front
Ok, that's it for today, I'm off to screw the cupboards to the wall then start the momentous task of tidying and organising my craft room! If I'm not back in the next 48hrs then send the search party in!
Thanks for looking today :-))))

Tape it and You're my Hero Quick Make

Hi there,
I am in a hurry (again) today as Zack is in a brass instruments assembly at 2.20 today but I do have a really quick card to go with this really quick post ;-)
I will add links later on but in brief I used the notelets and stamped the Tape it stamps across to make the background then added the police car  :-) 
 and  a side view, I added the car on foam pads and the sentiment was left unglued at the banner end :-)
OK, I have to dash!
Thanks for looking today,

Starburst Sayings for Zoe's 13th Birthday!

Hello there,
Yesterday was my lovely daughters 13th birthday :-)
She (obviously) had school during the day but she said it was alright and then in the afternoon/evening we had a little party with close friends and family, it was a lovely time.
So, this is the card I made, I kept it quite simple yet I realised when I was listing them that I actually used a whole heap of goodies to create this card! (I have tried to list everything I used at the bottom of this post)
 I stamped and punched these cute flowers from Petit Petals (and they are a bargain too at just £18.95 for the stamp set and matching punch!), the leaves are made with the bird punch and I added some hot pink twine I had around at home too.
 The sparkly chevron look was created by die cutting a circle from scrap card and using it as a mask to stamp through with the Positively Chevron stamp. I inked the stamp using Versamark and used Heat and Stick powder, heat then add Dazzling Diamonds; re-heat briefly and the glitter stays put :-)
 The main image was heat embossed onto Strawberry Slush card using white embossing powder and the smallest was heat embossed with silver powder onto Coastal Cabana card, then both were die cut out using the matching Starburst dies. All added to the card with plenty of dimensionals :-D 
Did you notice I ran the edges of the top layer through the silver ink pad for an extra bit of bling?
 Inside, I added a cute sentiment from the Just Sayin' set. I'm afraid the colours are a bit off  for the inside as I photographed this the night before her birthday before I wrote in the card ;-)
OK, that's all from me for today.
BUT only 'till Monday!!! Remember to place you order and get your freebies before this fab promo finishes!
