Sweet Stuff

Hello everyone,

Birthdays are always a very special occasion in our family, we love to get together and celebrate. Coming Sunday is my mum’s 85th birthday and a high tea is organised for the family and friends. Today’s card is a birthday card but not for my mum although I think with her sense of humor she will really enjoy the card especially the single candle on the cake! I love this picnic image with the hedgie enjoying strawberry tartlets and his little friend spoiling him with yummy vanilla sponge cake with buttercream. Indeed a birthday party to remember.

I enter my card in the following challenges:

A peep at the inside

The inside with the sentiment, twig and butterfly as finishing touches

Project details:

  • White, pink and green cardstock
  • Gingham designer paper
  • Penny Black slapstick stamp “Hedgehog Birthday”
  • Prima flowers
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities die “Lacey squares”
  • Marianne Design Creatables
  • Joy Crafts die “Butterflies”
  • Lyra-Rembrandt Aquarelle watr colour pencils
  • Skwiglues glitter ” Pink”

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a great week with lots and lots of inspiration.

Greetings from South Africa,

Amelia

    Wish your Mom a happy birthday for me. I’ll bet the card you made her is just beautiful and very sentimental. Although, I’m sure she’d be as much in love with this cutie. You know how much I love your cards, cute, or elegant, they are always my favorites. Beautiful creation Amelia with such bright and gorgeous colors. Will be a real treat for the recipient. “Hugs” Carol
