Simon's September Card Kit Card :-)

Hi all :-)  My Simon Says Stamp September kit arrived a few days ago but I didn't have to time to delve in before now so here is my first card using the kit. The stamp set is fabulous and would be perfect for any school related topics and I have seen some awesome bookmarks made using this kit too :-)

I used thin strips to make the shelves, after first stamping them and making a mess ,,,,at least I am being honest ,,, haha :-)

and I finished the inside ,, I am on a roll ,,,,, :-)

and this is the gorgeous kit :-)

Happy 21st Birthday Amy :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you're all OK and looking forward to a nice weekend :-) 

It was my daughter, Amy's, 21st birthday yesterday ( I was a very young Mum ,,,,,, lol)  and this is the card I made for her. 

I saw Stephanie Klauck demo'ing with these dolls at the Simon Says Stamp Create Event and couldn't wait to get one for me. It's just like those fab books we used to have as kids where you get to cut out a doll and then a whole wardrobe of clothes for her. 

I also used a Prima stencil to create the background. I love how it turned out and so did Amy ;-) I used a Prima Sparkling Spring paper pack which I just realise has been discontinued.

I finished the inside ,,,,

and this is Amy with her cake, baked and decorated by a lovely Gozitan lady called Rita :-) Thanks Rita XX It was beautiful and tasted fabulous :-) Those flowers are handmade sugarcraft ,,, isn't she clever !! 

Thanks for looking :-) 

Craft for the Craic ,,, Unused craft item, the stamp and the stencil
Cute Card Thursday ,,, A/G
Diva's By Design ,,,,, Happy Birthday
Little Red Wagon ,,,,, Girl Power
Simply Create Too ,,,, Show something new (the stamp and the stencil)

Hope you all have a great weekend  :-)
Happy Crafting
