More Birthdays.....


With the number of cards that I make, you would think that I am never short of a birthday card...however, my Mum asked me to give her a card for a friend and I seemed to have more valentines cards than birthday cards!  Time to stock up....

I am loving playing with my Create A Smile stamps at the moment.  I actually made this card a little while ago but don't think I have posted it before:

I combined the cute monster family with a sentiment from Hero Arts and paper chains from Altenew.  I am still practising with my Chameleon pens!  I will join up for a third time at Create A Smile's March Guest Designer call and at Simon Says Stamp's Anything Goes challenge.

Last week my post at Make the Day Special featured the lovely butterfly frame die from WPlus9.  I made this card from patterned paper but didn't have time to add it to my post:

I will link up a second time at Seize the Birthday Challenge blog.
I hope you like my birthday cards :)
Thanks for stopping by,

  7. Pretty burtterfly frame. Great card. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Seize the Birthday.

  8. Those critters are just so much fun! Great birthday card! I also craft almost every week more than one card and Isn't it funny that when you are in need of a card, you can't find any suitable in your stash...

  9. Ooo, I love your colouring and the design really caught my eye on the create a smile blog xx

  10. Love your adorable monster family and how you placed the party banners on this card! Your butterflies are also beautiful on your 2nd card, and I love the polka dot papers! Looks like you're well on your way getting caught up on B-Day cards!

  11. Love both cards but the monstercard is fav. Thank you very much for joining our guest designer search over at create a smile.

  12. Congratulations on winning the Create a Smile GD totally deserve it!!!!
