Happy 18th Birthday Amy ! :-)

Good Morning all :-) I hope you are all well and for those of you affected by the terrible hurricane Irene I hope you all stay safe xxx

Today is Amy’s 18th Birthday !! Where did the time go ?? Flew by in the blink of an eye !!

Today she will be having a pool party, to which me and her Dad aren’t invited !! Though I will be keeping a discreet eye on them, will sneak up onto the roof and peep over lol :-)

We are an animal loving family and Amy is especially fond of cats ( we have 7 so far !! ) and she likes quirky distressed cards rather than cute, so I bought this fab Crafty Secrets Party Cats Clear stamp set especially to make her card, there are loads of fab designs and sentiments on this ,, fantastic value ! I coloured the images with copics and inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink, adding star dust stickles around the edges and frosted lace on their ruffles. The papers are from a Basic Grey Out of Print pack, all the edges were inked and distressed and layered onto SU Close to Cocoa cardstock. I also bought the Tim Holtz weathered clock die ( Debby’s fault !! Smile) I added some bias tape and made a triple bow and popped an American Crafts Elegant Pearl Brad in the middle. The paper edges were all glittered with Platinum stickles and I added a few Hero Arts Blush Dots to finish.

Amy said this is the BEST card I ever made for her !!! :-)

I must admit I don’t usually bother to decorate the inside but maybe I should do it more often !

For the inside I used more stamps from the set and the papers from the same BG pack. The sentiment is Hero Arts and the no 18 is from a Lawn fawn alphabet set.

Thanks for looking , I appreciate your comments so please leave me one Smile
