New Play Things!!!

On Wednesday the 10th of March I got my much anticipated SAB order. I am looking so much forward to showing you what I came up with using the contents of the magical SU box!!

My delightful daughter (Miss 5) came home very excited from school on Tuesday, bursting with news of a party......that Saturday (13th March). After the interrogation as to who, why, where etc (which BTW she LOST the invitation!!!) I decided I could do this and make a card with one of my new sets. I found this card a couple of months back and fell in love with the colours more than anything. I adapted it to a standard size card and used Butterfly Prints. Here's what I came up with..

I was so very happy with the way this card turned out and I cannot thank Joanne enough for providing the inspiration for it. I think it is perfect for a little girl.

Irony of all ironies....Mast 9 came home with an invitation for a party on the same weekend....and I have fully 2 DAYS notice to come up with that one!!

Stuff Used:
CS: (SU) Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst, Whisper White, Tea Party DSP
Ink: (SU) Almost Amethyst
Stamp: (SU) Butterfly Prints
Punches: (SU) Butterfly, Eyelet Border, Designer Label, Carla Craft 1" Circle Punch
Oddments: Lilac 1/2 Pearls fm Bizzy Becs, SU dimensionals and Certainly Celery Ribbon, Silver 6 fm stash

You are just too clever!

I love this butterfly punch - and stamp set of course. It's something that I think every crafter needs..... like most of the SU!

Obviously Miss 5 didn't make this card, as I would have sat Miss 7 down to try and make her own. Gotta start 'em young, plus then hubby thinks that all the crafting stuff is for his precious daughter, so I am allowed to buy more. he he he!
