Birthdays....

I've been telling you that it's birthday month here. This gorgeous card came for me from my Mum (yes, today is my birthday). Isn't it gorgeous!!!! You have to love pink and green, a bit of bling, beautiful colouring and check out that paper!!!! :)









The next card is a BRAK (Birthday Random Act of Kindness from Krafty Kylie at SCS!!!! It is my first ever RAK or BRAK that I've received from anyone --- I can't tell you how excited I was to open it ---- AND there was ribbon inside!!! How cool is that?!!








The next two cards are ones that I've made.


This one is for an older man in the family who shares my son's birthday. It's fairly basic, VV base, stamped image in Close to Cocoa on VV, mounted on CC and added some copper brads. The paper is by Heidi Grace and the scallops done with the SU scallop punch!









This is the card I made for my son --- I can't believe he's 7!!!!

I wanted to try making a card using my Star Nestabilities, so it' not very big, but it's fun and he liked it!! :)

The orange paper (that you can't really see) is from SU's Bali Breeze DSP, the number is from the retired Headline Alphabet (SU) and the sentiment is from The Cats Pajamas.


That's all the card news today.

I'm finding it hard to celebrate when our country is suffering so badly due to bushfires. So far 173 people are dead, 500 injured, 5000 homeless and it is expected to get worse. Our country has never seen anything like it before and hope they never have to again. Please pray for those affected and if you can donate to the Bushfire Appeal please do - there are many to choose from, from banks to donation tins at your local Woolworths Supermarket.
You can also call the Red Cross on 1800 811 700 or go online to http://www.redcross.org.au/vic/services_emergencyservices_victorian-bushfires-appeal-2009.htm
