birthdays, birthdays, birthdays

I have been making lot's of birthday cards for my family. It's my uncle's and my auntie's birthday, so i have made them both an easel card. I'm really in to making them at the moment.

I have used the Little Claire club stamp for August, i have coloured it in using promarker, paper from Docrafts men's range. I love using this stamp as it;s great for men.

Again i have used a Little Claire stamp, coloured in using promarkers, papers from my mine's eye and the sentiment is also from Little Claire. I love, love this stamp. i have used it again from a 90th birthday card for my sister in laws nan, which i should be able to post in a couple of day.

I am hoping to get back to normal next weekend and back to making challenge cards and christmas cards. i am looking forward to going to the NEC craft show in a couple of weeks and spending some money on some new things.

I am hoping to be back in the week.
