Big Thank Yous

I've never been one to have a huge fanfare or make a fuss over my birthday, and I am always humbled and touched when  people do remember and take time out of their busy lives to handcraft a card to wish me a "happy birthday".

This post is a shout out for their thoughtfulness and to share their creativity.  That's not to say I didn't appreciate the other cards I received - I love them too, but it would make for a very long post if I included them all!

From Paula & Kelly on the left, and Petra on the right

This was a lovely surprise from Lynne

and this beautiful one too from Irene.

They're not in any order or preference, it was just the order in which I took the photographs and I'm finding it hard to pick a favourite because they're all lovely, don't you think?  Do you have a favourite?

I feel so blessed to have  widened my circle of friends largely thanks to my journey with Stampin' Up!  Thank you for ALL your cards and good wishes and thank you for visiting today.

Have a lovely weekend !

Stampin' smiles and hugs .............

Halloween Countdown #Wk 6 - Haunted House

This is the last episode in my Countdown to Halloween Series, and there may be a bonus one in the pipeline for next week.  Something I ordered especially for Halloween hasn't arrived yet, and eta was any time between now and November 5th!  Needless to say, I wasn't too impressed by the fact especially since the items had been ordered on the 2nd or 3rd of October!

Home Sweet Home thinlit dies are to die for and so versatile it can be used for any occasion throughout the year.  I wanted to access the sweets from the roof top, but didn't want to use the bull-dog type clip to hold it shut. See how I did it in the video.

Here's the list of supplies I used: -

Countdown to Christmas Series #Wk 4, Jolly Friends

Just adore the Warmth and Cheer 6"x 6" (15.2 cm x 15.2 cm) Designer Paper stack.  Using Designer Papers as a background makes quick and easy christmas cards.  Add a punch and some stamped images and Hey Presto - this is the result.   I have a tip on the video on how to match up the stamping with the punching - if you're a subscriber, then you'll recognise that I used the same principle as for the Foxy Friends series with the Fox Builder punch.  

The supplies I used are below - click on the pictures and it will link to my online store should you wish to make a purchase.  I would be so grateful if you do.

Cable Knitting?

My track record for knitting is appalling!  I once tried to knit a school jumper for my son when he was in prep school and discovered it stuffed in the back of a drawer unfinished many years later by which time he'd  already reached adulthood!  I unravelled the wool and gave the wool to charity in the end! Hanging my head in shame! lol!

This type of "knitting" is much more style ;-) and I love the deep impression the Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF makes.   I used the layered square framelits to cut the v-neckline on the sweater and used the gold reel from the Bakers Twine Trio pack to make a necklace.  I die cut the "merry" from Christmas Greetings in gold foil, and separated the letters attaching it with glue dots. I die cut the stars from Starlight thinlits for the tassels.  

The collar is a Whisper White square cut in half and adhered to the front as pictured.

Here's the supply list, click on the pictures to visit  my online store.
