Getting a Backlog!

Hi all. I've been enjoying the sunshine with the family this bank holiday and have managed two BBQ's! The warm sunshine definately makes me want to be outside in the garden although it means that I am getting behind with the cards! I have made this one for a friend and printed a pattern from Pink Petticoat directly onto the card which was silver. This has given it lovely shiney effect which doesn't show up in the photo.

Another friend also asked me to make a birthday card for her sister so I cut out the flower on my cricut, glittered it and used a beautiful glittery paper from Doodlebug.

I also made a bag charm for my five year old son a few weeks ago and we put it on his school bag. Apparently all the kids in his class loved it so we made some more this weekend to give out to his classmates!

I just printed my stamps onto some shrinkies plastic and coloured them in and then shrunk them very carefully with my heat gun. Its a bit tricky and somtimes they get stuck so I have learnt to place something like a cooling tray for cakes over the top of them and it mostly works!We had fun making these and still didn't get many cards done!

Those charms are adorable, I can see why the kids in your sons class went nuts for them, I want one too!!

Lovin' the soft colors you've used on the birthday cards, very pretty.
