Happy Birthday Jake!

Oh I can't beleive it my baby's 12 to day!
Time certainly flies by, It does not seem that long ago that he was born.
He is a big fan of Top Gear, hence the cake and we bought him a DSi and a few other bits.
He also got money, sweets & DVDs off others.

Happy Birthday Jake!
I know you read my blog.

Lots of love from us all xxxxxx

See you all soon

Bloomin With Beauty!

I made today's card using a sketch from Laurens blog.
I stuck to the sketch just adding vellum corners & ribbon to the top of the card.
I was quite pleased with the card but then disaster struck, I dropped
a purple felt tip pen on my card, oh I was so upset.
So I ended up sticking a piece of grosgrain ribbon over the mark and embellishing
it with peel off dots.
I think it has turned out ok!

Card; lavender lace, whisper white, almost amethyst & certainly celery Stampin Up.
Paper: Tea Party DPS Stampin Up
Stamps; Bloomin with beauty set.
Inks; basic grey, lavender lace Stampin Up.
Other; soft subtles felt pens Stampin Up, vellum corners, lilac organza ribbon, lilac grosgrain ribbon, peel off dots & glitter glue.
