Autumn is definitely knocking on the back door of summer right now isn't it! It was our first dance class of the season last night and one of the ladies brought damsons for anyone that wanted any. I see a jam making session in the next day or two for yours truly.
Right onto today's offering to you. One of my work colleagues asked me to make a 1st Birthday Card for a friend's daughter. Now anyone who knows me will know that I am not really geared up for small person's cards but nevertheless I decided to rise to the challenge with this...
I took my teddy stamp and kinda altered it. I stamped the balloons section several times and cut them out, having coloured them with Copics. The centre one I embossed with some WOW sparkly snow embossing powder as I realised the pink number wasn't going to show on the pink balloon! Doh!
I tied the balloons with some Maya Road string and twirlied them where teddy was holding them. The background paper is some Boofle paper and I stamped it with a NBUS Stampin Up stamp and some Versamark ink. The bunting was made out of the paper in the pack with the title and details of the Boofle pack. Well, it seemed a shame to waste it. Punched using a SU punch.
I had a little extra so used it inside too.
And here is the little envelope. Another teddy stamp and coloured with watercolour pencils. I learnt not to use Copics on the envelope the hard way once. Never again!
The mother of the little girl who's birthday it was has told my friend that this is a "keeper" and will go in the album she is doing for her. I feel quite chuffed at this!
Right, there are Snippets abound and NBUS of the stamp so I am taking this to the Snippets Playground and over to my Mate Darnell's.
Thanks for calling by. Nearly the weekend! I have a Saturday of playing and scrapbooking with my friend, so need to think about what I shall be making!
