Birthday cake

Sorry for such a gap in posting, I've been busy with custom orders and of course Christmas preparations.  I celebrated my Birthday a couple of weeks ago and had a wonderful day.  I was very spoilt at lunch time while I was at my lovely daughter in laws.  Her Mum ( now a dear friend of mine) made a wonderful birthday cake.  As you can it was very popular with my lovely grandaughter! lol and we both got in a lovely mess eating our cake! lol

Wine bottle tag

Andrea Walford has started a new challenge, called Makeover Monday and I thought you might like to see my take on it. 

The joy of this challenge is using things from your stash.  The card stock I've had for years! so I'm not sure where I bought it! lol  The striped paper is from a pack which is I think from Docrafts but not certain.  I used the SU punch for the envelope and label and Xcut christmas tree punch.  I added the envelope to a strip of gun metal colour metallic card stock and added 2 silver peeloff christmas trees.
To make the tag top I used a photo corner punch and cut the corner to the first punch line, hope that makes sense! lol

S on S Xmas toppers

Hi everyone, at last I've been able to make a sheet up for you for sheets on saturday(S on S).  I hope this comes in handy for all your Christmas cards.  As you can see I've included 2 of each design.  The boot is for a quick card with just the 'fur' to layer which would look nice with glitter on.  The frame has 2 extra  layers to give more dimension.
 Wishing you all a happy and peaceful weekend.

1st Christmas vellum!

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and that the weather is being kind to you.  My thoughts are with those that have been affected by hurricane Irene.
Yesterday all my family were together celebrating my mothers 80th birthday, it was so nice to catching with all my nieces and their families etc and have 4 generations sitting together.
Now the celebrations are over I've had time to do some designing today.  Here is a little offering using tiles from PSP Tubez (with license).  I've divided the A4 sheet giving you the choice between traditional and modern designs.  Have fun using them and as usual click the image to enlarge it and then save to your computer for personal use only.
