40th Birthday cards

Well what a hectic week I've had. My sister, Ali, was 40 on Saturday and I'd been helping Mum get things sorted for a BBQ and get together.Why is it that there never seems to be enough spare time for when you want to put your feet up and craft. I had managed to do these cards for her though ( the tri shutter card bares some of Ali's most favourite things and colours so it may seem muddled to you). I hope she likes them.

I used some SU Yo Yo Yellow as the card base,layered with Green Galore,and Whisper White.I then stamped onto the front,back,and center panels, the flourish from the Bliss set with the edges masked off,and a little corner stamp(which I think is Woodware ) in Chocolate Chip.The little pony is a Clarity stamp,and the running dogs are on the SU Tailgating roller (that I've undone from the roller itself) and coloured with Watercolour pencils. The gooey chocolate cake and pile of presents are from SU Happy Moments and coloured with Pro markers.The sentiment and numbers are Woodware. I had added a yellow butterfly to the front after the photo was taken.

This card is for Mum to give her,and there is no mention of her age as she requested.

I started with a cream card from my stash and rounded the corners. I then ran some Whisper White through the BS with a large label die and layered that on some Lavender Lace.Some Green Galore was used in the BS with a Marianne vine die to climb up the side and along the bottom of the label.The flowers were made with LLace (petals sponged with Orchid Opulence) and Pretty In Pink(sponged with Regal Rose) cut in BS with Crealies die. All finished with the H from Strength and Hope,and sentiment from Woodware stamped in Melon Mambo,and gems in the flower centers.

Hopefully I can get some crafting done this week as I've missed entering all the challenges, please keep your fingers crossed for me,and hope to be back soon.
