Big Birthdays #WOYWW459

Hello world and welcome to my blog on this glorious sunny morning!

Today I'm joining in with the What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday gang. Click here to find out more and also here to check out what everyone else has been doing this week

Such a difference to the last few weeks with snow dominating everyone's lives here in the UK. Let's hope Spring is finally here.

This week is all about celebrating two special birthdays with my work colleagues. Both turn 60 within a week or so of each other so I dragged out the Bigshot and my large number dies and stamps to create these cards. Based on a card sent to my dear friend Anne over on Copper Beech Crafts for her Stampin Up 6th anniversary.

This card was made using Berry Burst ink and a piece of gorgeous foiled card (free with Sale-a-bration, Stampin Ups annual sale). The card base with the silver swirl is from a stash of cards I've had forever!

This card was made using Soft Sky ink and more of the foiled card. The mini sequins on both are also SU supplies.

It's been a fun few days making these, but now I need to return to the real world and chores (groan!)

Have a fab week and please do return soon

  1. I like those cards very much! As a newbie card maker, I'm taking a keen interest in people's ideas. I like the way you've wrapped the ribbon around the toning card. I shall remember that technique!!

  7. Nice work Karen, lovely card. ‘Dragged out’ the big word, do you have a proper put-away place for it. Am so impressed.

  8. Beautiful cards for whom I am sure are beautiful people. I love your use of the foiled DSP. Seeing it in the catalog I wasn't thrilled. But then someone does something creative and I'm all over it! LOL Sadly, I'm tapped this month. Have quarterly coming up in a few days that I need to plan for. Retired list is going to kill me, I'm afraid LOL Mostly in cardstock and DSP! Creative Blessings! Kelly #25
