It's Party Time Again

I have two cards to show today they are Birthday cards that I made yesterday.
Yes it is that time of year the Birthday Parties have started already this one was for Charlotte's friend Victoria..
I made the card & then we went out to purchase the gift, Charlotte picked a Fairy book & when we got home the card didn't seem right for the gift so I started to make a more Fairy like card.
I like both cards, but it turned out that the fairy card looked a bit old for a 5yr old & the other card didn't look right at all for a little girl who likes fairies & I was out of time to come up with another one. So in the end Victoria received the Fairy card her mum liked it:)
Here are both the cards.
For you Ruby the new stamps here is a card made at your request, I hope this one is to your liking:) Lol

SU! CS: Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla. Stamps: Warm Words, Baroque Motifs.
Stamps: Fairy Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Magnolia I stamped it from a friends collection Thanks Jackie.
Paper both from Basic Grey.

First card for the year

Hi I am back for another year of blogging fun & this is my first card for the year..
This is a Birthday Card for my niece Katelin it is her birthday in about a week.
Happy Birthday KT..
I had fun making this card using some old scrapbooking products that I found when I was cleaning up my scrap area, it was good to use some of my other products on a card. As I tend to keep my cards & scrap pagers very different.
I have also used the SU! Chunky Sprinkles I have been looking for a reason to use these sprinkles for some time now but never found the right project. Here I have used them as a border and think I will be doing this again it is very cute way the add bling to a card..

I hope you all had a great Holiday and I would like to thank you for visiting my blog over the past year and enjoy coming back this year, I hope to be able to add more projects on a regular basis over the year as it looks like I wont be studying this year:(

Used: SU! Card Regal Rose, Kiwi Kiss, Raspberry Tart, Chunky Sprinkles light pink
Stamp Swiss Pixies
