Peggy Sue is 82 -2 (80 but it didn't rhyme)

I am just soooooo pleased with myself with this one - don't care if I sound big-headed I L.O.V.E. love it!    The papers are from Craft Creations metallic stack, the roses I made from a class with the wonderful Jane Gill, the little flowers were made with the Woodware little sun punch x3, the centres are a tiny weeny star punch then cupped with my embossing tool and turned upside down.    The '80' is Quickutz Roxy, the oval punches are from Stampin Up  and finally the sentiment I produced on the computer.

Yo Me Bro is Gonna be the Big Five O

Well me little Bro is gonna be the big Five-0 this coming weekend and I've been racking my brains what to do for him and in true crafters tradition 'BING' 4am it comes to me!    He/well We are all big Chelsea fans here, but as I've made him Chelsea cards for the past 4 years running I thought I'd just make a Blue one this time :-)    I used the Quickutz Soccer Ball die and cut out double on the plain circle so I could hide the ribbon between, then I chalked the outer of the circle and used a peel off with a darker shade of chalk to get a sort of watermark of football - not sure if you can see it too clearly.   The wording is Quickutz and the alphabet is Quickutz Roxy.   I left the bottom circle blank for the sentiment.    I made the box (got it right first time SarahK!) and used my large square nesties to cut out the aperture which is filled with an acetate square.   I can't remember where I got the football ribbon - if anyone knows can they share please as I'd love some more.  

I love all my classes I go on - it's such fun to share and spend time with fellow crafters, but I really do like the buzz I get when I get to design and make something myself.   Need to tidy up a bit now...

Oh What a Night!

I just lurve these toe tapper cards for those very special friend special birthdays.     I would have liked to have had time to make the flowers but completely ran out.    I just realised the shoe is upside down in this image as you can't see Gill the right way round... oops.    Used lovely Bazzill card and the Happy Birthday stamp is from Woodware Jane Gill collection.  Oh yes, the title is because Gill had a fantastic garden party on the last reasonable Saturday night we had - there was booze, music and a gorgeous hog roast mmm...
