Wow I can’t believe it’s Friday already. It’s still cool here but at least the rains have stopped. They say we should have a very comfortable weekend. Hope they are right and it will be nice where ever you are as well.
I received one of those wonderful and extremely rare 20% off entire purchase coupons in the mail two weeks ago. Why do that do that, it all but drives me mad having to wait so long before I can use it but it did give me time to plan what I would get. Of course everything on my list was already on sale. Fiskars punches were all 30% off, Spellbinders and stamps were 40% off. Adhesives, a few embellishments and some card stock were also on sale. I got two little flower punches, Labels Three, two stamps, a few embellishments and some adhesives. Only thing that stopped me was my limited budget. The clerk rang me up and congratulated me. He said it was rare to have the total saving to be larger then the total spent. He is new and doesn’t know me. LOL!
My little girl’s birthday card was inspired by Di of Pixies Crafty Workshop and Jules of Always with a Heart. Jules inspires me to use my scraps as often as possible and I love her punched flowers. So much so I bought those little punches just so I could make some. Of course the color is inspired by Di. Di do you recognize the ribbon? I couldn’t just toss it out.
I used MS Cherished hearts and saved the tiny hearts, they are just so cute I have a difficult time tossing them. I stamped the little cake and colored it with color pencils and DecoColor liquid gold then cut and embossed with Labels Three. I did the same with the black but it was to wide so I hand cut along the embossed mark to get a thinner edge. I added those tiny hearts and a little glitter glue to each. A Jules flower and bit of ribbon and some rhinestones to finish.
If she hasn't close the playground gates I'll be entering this in
JULES' CRAFTY SNIPPET CHALLENGE - WEEK 39
I have decided to enter my card into the
Cute Card Thursday challenge, where they want to see cake on our cards.
Thanks for stopping by. And Thank You for the comments you leave.
