Well Christmas is over, thank goodness as my daughter and grandchildren were ill all day Christmas Day and my daughter still is, poor thing. In between running up and down stairs to her I have managed to make a birthday card! Inspiration from Becky Stewart on Pink Petticoat & using all PP papers.

I have to share this diamond of a find with you

I was at a class at Crafts U Love recently and saw one of these dinky little fine tip glue applicators that Wendy had. I ordered 2 and they have just arrived, they are fantastic! You can get them from here they come with a pin and they also sell spare pins for the top which stops the glue drying out.

Louise's birthday

4 of my 5 children have birthdays in early Jan and Feb so I am going to be busy making cards!!! This is for my eldest DD who is 29 on 4th Jan.
I used Designer Digitals digi papers and doodles and a digi stamp for the 'truly unique' and the frame is from 'I made this today'.

21st Birthday card for Sarah

Sarah (my son's girlfriend) is 21 on New Years Day and he asked me to make him a card. I thought black and white is nice and modern and fresh. The greetings circle and the flowers were all cut with the Cricut Expressions.

I used some yummy chipboard letters on the edge of this card and the left over waste snowflakes stencil pattern from the paint pail!

My Nestabilities have arrived!!

Wow and what a lot I got! I bought the whole set of each shape, circle, square, rectangle and oval because I know I will use them.

Red & White snowflake

Made with the 2 SU punches stuck onto vellum and glittered and Cuttlebug snowflakes and stars added.

Paint Pail

I made this gorgeous little paint pail at Crafts U Love with the lovely Wendy Horrod last night. We had a fab class and she is such a talented lady. Don't you just love these?!

Oh dear more spending...

.... but I just HAD to have these! The tote is so cool, it has a lazy susan bottom that attaches with a magnet so that it spins around on the work surface, great for classes! The desktop carousel is just what I have been looking for and will keep everything within easy reach. Aren't they cute?!!

Papertrey Border stamps

I got 4 sets of these gorgeous acrylic stamps this morning from here and they stamp beautifully and fit the punches just right. The tiny little stamps in the sets are just right for stamping into the scallops of a shape and the possibilities with these sets are just endless. They also come in lovely packaging and have a clear CD jewel case to store them in, can you tell I love them?!!

I used some Lasting Impressions card embossed with tiny feet that I have had for years and PP papers for this one.

On Saturday evening I was just going out to watch my son's band play and I fell down the stairs. I badly hurt my back and have been housebound for the last 2 days. I think it is slowly improving though and I should be able to drive soon hopefully.
