Happy 21st Ashlyn

One of my son’s good friends Ashlyn celebrated her 21st this week.  Ben bought her a lovely gift & asked if I’d make a pretty box to put it in….. at last some compulsory craft time…. lol

I made this little box to snuggly fit the box in & a little gift card as Ben’s not really into having to write on a ‘big’ card.  So made the card to also fit inside the box.

& the lid off

Until later happy stampin’


Happy Birthday Cameron

It was my new boss to be Dr M’s birthday yesterday.  I have always acknowledged my current boss Dr L’s birthday, so thought I should perhaps do the same with the new doctor joining our practice this year.

It’s a little plain, but sometimes less is more I guess

Until later, happy stampin’

Happy Birthday Denise!

It was David’s sister Denise’s birthday on Friday, so big belated wishes Denise!

I didn’t want to blog anything earlier as I thought she might see her card & little chocolate box before she got home to see it.  She has told me she loved them & her gift, so now I can share with everyone….. lol

A little chocolate box with Ferrero Rocher chocolates.

I had a purple theme as that’s her favourite colour.

Happy 21st Birthday Ben

Today was my son Ben’s 21st Birthday!  I can’t believe where all those years have gone.  I’m such a proud Mum of all Ben has achieved in his 21 years, from being a great tennis player winning so many seasons in his local league from the age of 6yrs….. to today with his carpentry apprenticeship.

He is my only child – so you could say he gets spoilt…. but I know he appreciates all I do for him.

This is my card

He will be celebrating with his friends next weekend when we have his 21st party.  But he had a small gathering today at home with some close friends, so I made him a giant cupcake!

and here he is getting a birthday kiss from the girls…..lol

Love you my darling son! xxxx

Until later, happy stampin’

Happy Birthday Gail

It was my wonderful friend & work colleague Gail’s birthday last week & how sad is it that I’m only now posting up her birthday card.

Twins turn 6

Oh my gosh I have made lots of cards recently for my friends/family’s children & don’t seem to have posted them….. oops!

It was my wonderful friend & hairdresser Kim’s twins – Joseph & Luke birthday nearly 2 weeks ago now.  They are just adorable boys & I love the way they greet me when I visit.  Joseph is just such a chatterbox & Luke is just such a loveable boy although he is leaving that shyness behind more & more.  They’ve even been media celebrities a couple of times….. just priceless!!!

These are the cards I made them:

Luke loves red

Joseph loves blue

Belated Happy Birthday Joseph & Luke!! xx

Stamp: I Dig You

Until later, happy stampin’
