May means busy birthday month!


I don't know why but May has got to be the busiest time for birthdays, so that means lots of card making :0)

Here are a handful that I made yesterday, most are inspired by Pinterest (thank goodness for the big P - makes life sooo much easier!)

using my MS magnetic punches for the first time.....I was beginning to wonder if they were a waste of money!! Hero Arts stamp.

MME Miss Caroline papers, stamped twill, Fiskars 'wish' stamp

more MME Miss Caroline and the good old MS butterfly punch (now that was money well spent!)

Anna Griffin stamp and a collection of random bits

Letterpress embossing folder 'inked' with glue and then gilded. MME  butterflies stamped with glue, gilded and cut out. Anna Griffin stamp
I bought the Indigo Blu 'FlitterGlu' a while ago along with some of their gilding flakes and I have to say it is as fabulous as they say it is! The photo really hasn't captured the beauty of the gilding :0(

So off I go to make yet more cards.........I have had to write a list on my blackboard just to keep track! Because I make DD#1's cards I am having to make up to 3 per family member although I am going to have a crafty day with DGD tomorrow so that she can make her own......Cricut Paper Dolls here we come!

Thanks for popping in,
