60th Birthday!!!!!

It has been a few days since I last blogged but hopefully am back on track now, or so I hope. I have been busy with making cards so not all has been lost.  The weekend we went to the Hobbycraft and Creative Stitches show at Bluewater. I got some lovely new Lili of the Valley stamps, which can't wait to make some cards with them, I finished of my set of Promakers which is very exciting. My mum and dad got me a daylight and that is making a massive difference. Anyway, sorry about the ramble.  These were a couple of cards I have made for my brother in laws mum which was yesterday.

The backing paper for this card was from My Minds Eye Lost and Found collection. It is a gorgeous soft pink with script all over it.  I then  cut a small square in soft pink and then a slightly smaller square which I embossed using the flutterby embossing folder by Cuttlebug.  I used Sizzix Broadway Melody for the 60 and the glitter paper was from WHSmith. I then tied a bow in pink ribbon and put along the bottom of the square.

For this card, I used some of the gorgeous new products from Stampin' Up. It is the Greenhouse Garden 2 step stamping set.  I used the real red inkpad and just randomly stamped the stamp for the background.  I then stamped the proper stamp to create the flower. The stem was stamped in Old Olive. The 60 was again die cut using Sizzix Broadway Melody and I stamped the Happy Birthday and then put red glitter over the words to add a bit of sparkle. 

Hope you like and hopefully be on again later with some other makes 

Love Bex xxxx
