Last minute birthday!

Yes, there’s nothing quite like a last-minute birthday party announcement. I fear Master Eleven was in-fact advised of this event earlier in the week but decided to only advise me only the day prior, at which point he wasn’t interested so the said information was immediately released from my advice-vault. What can I say, if it doesn’t involve me I say… “catch and release“!

Anyways, that was the “day before” wasn’t it? The day of the event at 3pm it was decided he’d go for the intended start time of 6pm but only stay until 10pm at which time I would be required to collect him. Fine… one last-minute card and gift coming up… grrrr, children, grrrr 🙂 This is what eventuated and fortunately, I promised myself at the time that next month, next week, I would leave this particular DSP alone and I now I have!

Anyways… for a last-minute card I think I did okay don’t you?!

Shapes and Numbers

I tell you, I’m lovin’ this new hexagon punch, so much so I’ve now gone through the new Annual Catalog and found every matching stamp-set and ordered them… yikes! As this hexagon stamp felt a tad girlie I used another stamp and punch to cover some of the sentiment for a more masculine feel.

Shapes and Numbers - Sentiment

And for the “you” I made a letter “U” from the XL and L Oval stamps, added Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered over the top of some of the fabulous Washi Tape which just happened to have a HEXAGON pattern on it, yea baby!

Shapes and Numbers - U

Farewell Riding Hood Red!

Only two days left on the Spring Catty and only a smidge longer on any retiring items you may want so be quick!

Inkee Fiddlings - Riding Hood Red - Thanks

This card base is from one of the retiring ten, Riding Hood Red and to this I’ve added a piece of Striped Embossed Riding Hood Red and some DSP from… Print Poetry DSP Stack. In the middle of the card I’ve added embossed Whisper White Card-stock trimmed with Scallop Trim Border in Basic Grey.

And what seems to be an essential of any of my cards lately, I’ve added a butterfly. This one I’ve made from the two butterflies punches, added pearls and Dazzling Details, and placed along side the two-tone grey ribbon.
