50th Card for a Friends Sister

A friend asked to me to make her sister a card for her 50th birthday, the brief was pink and girlie. I had recently been to one of Pat's card classes and had just the stylee in mind.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting :o) xx

And here is the one I made at Pat's class:

Stamps: Create a Cupcake, Petite Petals both from Stampin' Up and Peacock from Kanban. 50 made up on my computer and I inked the edges.
BG Papers: Plain card from my stash.
Dies: Classic Ovals from Nestabilities.
Embossing Folder: Designer Frames from Stampin' Up.
Embellishments: Paper flower and button from Stampin' Up, other flower made from punches from Hobby craft and a flat backed pearl.

Support our Heroes Abroad

While blog-hopping, checking out what all you creative types have been up to, I stumbled across a challenge called Heroes Card Drive, it is a card drive for American troops, so they can send home messages etc to their loved ones. After a little searching I found Support Our Soldiers Appeal, same sort of thing but for UK Armed Forces. Here are a few cards I made to package up and send on to this worth while appeal. I kept to the same layout but made several colour variations. I am definitively gonna make more card for them.

Thanks for Stopping by, and happy crafting, Lorry :o) xx

Stamp: Teeny Tiny Wishes and Button Buddies from Stampin' Up.
BG Papers: Patterned paper stamped from main flower, plain paper from my stash.
Punches: 2" circle punch from Hobby Craft, Scalloped edge punch from Stampin' Up.
Embellishment: Flat backed gems from Hobby Craft.
