Sweet Birthday Wishes!

Good morning all!

The sun is shining and it looks like it is going to be a beautiful day! I'm really enjoying my week off of work and I can't believe what nice weather we've had over the last few days! It looks like I picked the right week!! I am going out with my mum for the day to York today, but before I head off I thought I would share with you a card I made yesterday for my neice's upcoming birthday in a few weeks (can't believe I'm so organised!). I even used the challenge sketch from this weeks A Spoonful of Sugar, it's been a while since I entered a challenge!

I dug out some new stamps that I bought a while back from Elzybells and started getting creative!

An inside view again, it's getting quite addictive this decorating the inside of the card malarky!


Papers: SU Sweet Pea Designer Paper stack (from the mini catalogue, only avalailable
until the end of september so hurry if you want it!)

CS: SU Pretty in Pink and Rose Red

Images: Elzybells 'Hey Cupcake' Clear Two step stamping set

Sentiment: Craftwork cards, Inkadinkado (sentiment inside)

Tools: SU Stamp-a-ma-jig, Sponges for
distressing around the edges, Nellie's circle dies, SU Blender pen, SU Oval punch

Misc: SU inks in Rose Red, Pretty in Pink and So Saffron, Elzybells Co-ordinates Ink Pads in Cookie Dough and Sticky Toffee, Adhesive pearls from my stash

I really enjoyed using this Elzybells cupcake kit, I love two step stamping and because this kit is clear it is so easy to use and there are infinite combinations you can make!

Well that's all for me today, got to get ready before my mum gets here. Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you may leave!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
