Today is my birthday so the perfect day to celebrate some fun and versatile stamp sets from the ocassion and sale-a-bration catalogues.
We have some really amazing products in this year’s sale-a-bration catalogue. I’ve created these 2 cards using the same sketch. One card using the occasions catalogue products and another using the sale-a-bration set
We have some fabulous bloggers in the ESAD group. Thanks for your great post Nicole.
This card was created for my daughter, Lisa, who turned 7 on New Year’s Eve. We tell her she is lucky that she gets fireworks on her birthday every year. This year we gave her the first Harry Potter book because she has seen her 3 sisters read them, role play about the books and be slightly obsessed about them. So in keeping with the theme of her birthday I created a card using the ….. set which is perfect for the Harry Potter theme.
One of my daughter’s has a friend whose birthday it is today as well so Jasmine also received a card from me because we a birthday buddies.
Thanks for stopping by. Keep hopping and if you get lost don’t forget to follow the list below.
I don’t think people acknowledge others enough in our society. I made this quick card one night for my eldest daughter because she helped me out. Hollie had only just turned 8. It was a busy evening (aren’t they all when you have young kids?) and I hadn’t had time to get the washing off the line. I was cooking dinner. My darling husband wasn’t home. I wasn’t getting flustered. The kids were nagging because they were hungry and were fighting with each other because, hey that’s what you do at the end of the day and you just want to go to bed. Hollie, seeing me a little flustered and knowing I wanted to get the washing off the line, offered to take the washing in for me. Isn’t that just so sweet?
Hollie loves creating. Hollie loves praise. I left this outside her room so she could see it when she got up. Nothing special but the sentiment was what was special. She loved it and even now thinking about her taking the washing off the line for me makes me smile. What a lovely girl.
