Birthday Boy

Hello there!
Wow! What a lot of people visited yesterday! I am so happy to have you visit me here :-D
I am again a little late posting today as I have had Zoe poorly and up 4 times in the night last night! But she seems to be O.K. at the moment, fingers crossed. Normally it would be fine as I am at home during the day and we could just hang out... but DH is off today and I was really hoping for lunch out, or at the very least a coffee out somewhere! kids huh? perfect timing ;-) he he!
Anyway, onto today's card, I am in love with the New level 1 hostess set from the mini catalogue A Slice of Life, it has such cute images included and I wanted to have a little play with the birthday cake and candles...
 in fact as I look at this it is very similar to this weeks Simply Stampin' Challenges sketch this week, hop over and take a look ;-)
you can see here I added Crystal Effects to some of the layers and spots after I had coloured the cake using just about all the blue ink pads I have and a blender pen,
I ruffled the Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding Ribbon by pulling a thread from the centre and this sentiment is from the Level 2 set Something to Celebrate, also from the new mini catty, I inked it using my markers to get the cute two tone effect. For a great deal when ordering during June and July go HERE
DSP is Certainly Celery from the Subtles paper stack,
And finally I did a little stamping on the inside to finish it off but I think I may add a white layer in here too...
O.K. that's it from me today, thanks as ever for dropping by today, I hope you have enjoyed today's card and I will be back tomorrow with more crafty goodness,
Stampin' Hugs,


  1. Sorry to hear that Zoe is ill hope she feels better soon. Disappointing when you're all set for some grown up time, but she'll be glad Mummy's home. Your card is fab and I too like the hostess sets in the mini. They're fun! Zx

  2. As ever great card Sarah-Jane! I need this set now! I'm not signed up for amanda's trainging day at the moment, I'm moving to Hill Head this weekend and have a rather large vet bill to pay, so I'm not sure what I'm doing just yet but would like to go! Did you go to the regional training in Whiteley before the mini came out?
