A Very Happy 40th Birthday...

This card was made for a special friend of mine that celebrated her 40th birthday earlier this summer.  

I created the background paper using the flower stamps form the Number of Years stamp set, but you could always use your favourite DSP instead.

My inspiration for this card came from a German demonstrator Nadine Weiner.  I think, if you read her blog entry, she got her inspiration from someone else, but as I haven't studied German since I left school, I cant be too sure exactly what she wrote!

The addition of the corner rounder just gives the card a softer look.

The last picture is just a reminder not to forget to co-ordinate your envelope - it really does give it a professional finish!

More soon!

Just Peachy...

Today's fruit bowl offering is the lovely Peekaboo Peach, teamed with Pear Pizazz.  

The products used were the Fresh Fruit stamp set and the Fruit Stand DSP, teamed with the Peekaboo Peach ruched ribbon - plus the left over doily from yesterday's card!!

I like how versatile these cards are - you could add any sentiment to suit any occasion - great for what I call 'stock cards' - make up a few and add the sentiment when you need it!!

Well, thanks for dropping by.  I'll be back soon to share some more of my SU makes!

The Perfect Pear...

As promised, here is the second helping from my fruit bowl - again using the Fresh Fruit stamp set and the Fruit Stand DSP.

The inks used are Pear Pizazz, Flirty Flamingo and the leaves are Emerald Envy.  I've also added half a doily and some of the new ruched ribbon in Flirty Flamingo.

I'm loving using this set - I did say in my last post how they felt really summery - I think I spoke to soon!  I cant believe how much rain we have had in the last 2 days!  It's Ollie's birthday tomorrow so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there may be a bit of sunshine for him!

If you'd like to know more about any of the products you've seen in any of my posts, please feel free to contact me at

Back soon!
