A Girly Card

Hey lovelies,

Thought I'd best keep up with some semi regular posts. I don't know how I manage to run out of hours every day....eek!! In the last 2 weeks I've made a total of 14 cards.....but then finding the time to photograph them in daylight and then edit and upload them with some text, that's what is getting away from me at the moment, I'm sorry. Forgive me?? ;)

Here's another card I made for my friend's birthday. Can you believe I still have not handed her gift over to her yet. We are both a wee bit too busy at the moment. I'm having problems firming up any plans right at this moment as my dear ol' baby sister is due to have bubs #2 any moment now (she's officially due on Thursday, 24th) and I'm on standby for looking after bubba #1 when she and her hubs go into labour. My goal whilst I have Cameron to myself, is to get his wee cute self to say Auntie!! He's almost 19mths old now and has mastered several other words, including Elmo, so I reckon being able to address is other most favourite person, ie Auntie Michey, by her title is next on the list. Wish me luck.

When I made these cards for my friend, I wanted them to all be different, some girly-girl, some more manly ones, some birthday, some thank you and some for whatever she wanted to use em for.

This is one of the more girly-girl ones and is probably suitable for just any ol' occasion, though I think it qualifies as a birthday card too.

I've grabbed a piece of my beloved BG Porcelain paper and simply matted it onto some SU Blush Blossom card. Used a PTI mat stack die to cut the sentiment panel and then stamped it with both SU Blush Blossom (floral pattern) and PTI Sweet Blush inks. Some reinker used to "re-dye" my white taffeta ribbon into Blush Blossom and a couple of Kaisercraft rhinestones and I was done.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend. Mine's been great - though I've watched more sport on the telly these past few days than I have all year so far!! Watching the mighty Maroons stomp all over the Blues on Wednesday night (Yay!! 5 in a row for Qld), then the V8's were on yesterday, followed by the Wallabies in the early evening and then I just had to stay up and cheer for the Socceroos in their redeeming game against Ghana in the World Cup last night. Wowsers!! I'm not usually one who generally watches a lot of sport, especially on TV, but it seems that there's a fair bit on right now. And Wimbeldon is just around the corner, sheesh. I can see lots of crafting and colouring happening in front of the telly in my near future. :)

Catch ya again soon. xxxx Michey xxxx

This is beautiful Michey! I love that BG paper too!
No need to apoligize, I think everyone can relate to running out of time...so much to do and work always gets in the way! ;)
I'll take a post from you whenever you can get it up!
