Happy Birthday Card

Well today I attended my BFFs beautiful daughters Pre Birthday Party and made her the cutest No. 2 Birthday card.

I had such a great time making this, the balloons are from Lawn Fawns new stamp set Admit One which I stamped onto colored card stock and then cut out and I made the balloon string by wrapping a piece of paper around the end of a pant brush.  To get the balloon string to hold its shape I misted it with a little water and then hit it with a heat gun for a few seconds.  It kept it's shape so well I even had to pull the curl out of it a little.  

The card turned out so colorful and cute I just love it to death and wanted to share it with you all.

Crafty Sketches July Challenge

I loved the sketch design for the Crafty Sketches July Challenge and had really been wanting to try a Black and White LO, so here it is.....

While I will not be in any sort of a hurry to do another Black and White LO, I absolutely love it and even got to try out watermarking with my embossing power.   I cannot wait for next months challenge.

Blind Scrap

Well my Friend Nat had been telling me about a Blind Scrap that she found on Scrap Therapy, at first I had no idea what she was talking about but once she had explained it to me a few times I was actually really excited to give it a go.  For those of you who are like me and had never heard if this before, basically you are given a list of items you will need to complete a LO and then on the indicated day/time you go to the forum and are given a set of instructions one by one on how to put all the bits and bobs together to create you LO.  You are then given a few days to finish it all off before they open up the Forum for you to upload you LO and check out how everyone else interpreted the instructions.  

It really was a lot of fun, I got together with my friend Nat on the night and we both had a ball putting together our very different designs.  The Scrap Therapy Forum runs the Blind Scrap once a month so check it out, I promise you'll at least have a laugh.
