A Rather Belated Birthday Card

It was the Lovely Ladybug Laurie's birthday last Thursday, and I forgot. Anyway, Laurie's, AKA "Designer Diva" the forgiving kind so almost a week later she has now received her card so I can show it to you.
I used one of the retro range of digi's by Kenny K,
I so enjoyed shading the flowing locks with the old Copics.
The papers are "Follow Your Heart" by My Minds Eye.
I also had a go at hand cutting pennant style flags, a change from my usual addiction of triangular bunting :)
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Crafts And Me 99, Birthday,
KK'sKK108, Anything goes,
EFG30, Punches and dies,
TTCRD33, Diva,

Such A Star

What else was I supposed to do to congratulate our son on his amazing GCSE results!  I was going to add "U R" or "What" but my husband said that nothing else was needed.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CIP, Back to school,
MSCC92, School,
Before I go I need to share what a terrible mother I am. Before I made this card, our youngest daughter asked me if I was going to make a congratulations card, when I said I probably would she came out with, that's good, you forgot to make one for me when I passed my 11+ the other year! How terrible did I feel! I just can't believe that it slipped my mind.
Not wanting to to be accused of favouritism I got cracking and made this card using my Marij Rahder stamp paperpiecing the snail's shell.
It made my daughter giggle!

Hello Strangers!

Hi all, did you think I'd given up blogging? No way, I've just been on holiday for a fortnight and ran out of time so never got round to scheduling any posts other than my DT ones. I'll be making it up though this week as I've at got 3 DT cards ready to post but before I do, here's a Twinchie entry. I hadn't planned to make this tonight but I kind of got trapped in my craft cabin, the rain was so heavy and I hadn't a coat. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it lol!)
