Happy Birthday, Dad!

This is the card I created for
my dad's birthday, which is today.

Stamps: Carabelle Studio - Bird Collage
Hero Arts - Branches
Die cut tiny birds - Memory box
Brusho in Sandstone
Perfect Pearls in Gold Brown (dusted on branches)
The light was appalling this morning,
we had torrential rain most of the day.
So the photo does not quite show the gold shimmer to the
The photo I took of the card stood didn't come out
clear either. It was a blurry mess!!

Dad loves the birds but I doubt many paid him a visit today for his
birthday. I wasn't too happy going out to work in it!

Mother's Day

On 29th January, my colleague, Hollie,
gave birth her gorgeous little boy, Theo.
He came two months early, but he was
really determined to join us.
After a long month in hospital,
he was allowed home on 1st March.

He is a mini image of his mummy.

How perfect for her to have him home
for her very first Mother's Day.
I made her this quick cute card
to mark the special occasion.

I used Papermania honeycomb stamp
with embossing ink & dusted with
yellow/gold perfect pearls.
Image, free CS cover stamp.
I had intended to share wedding invitations,
but they will keep for another day!
