Bella’s Birthday

Well, I must apologise for falling off the radar for a while. We’ve had Bella’s birthday last weekend and visitors coming and going for almost a week. Plus, I’ve discovered a whole new blog world for writers and I’ve been lost in the world of agents, editors and writers. I’ve even had a few lines of my WIP edited by a real NYC editor – wow! It’s fabulous!

But back to cards 🙂 This is the card I made for my Bella. She loved it!


Bella’s one request for her card was that it have a big 5 with glitter on it (“like Harry’s”, she says to me). So, out came the Sticky Cut Letters and the chunky glitter. I’ve borrowed my cousin’s Wild About You stamp set (I must return it, Lyndal!) – so I had to put an animal on her card too. I just had to play with it, you know? Plus, I’d seen a gorgeous idea by my friend, Michele, with a fairy wand (made simply using the star punches and a thin scrap of cardstock). I wanted to use that idea too. So they all came together in this card.

I’ve used the colours Lovely Lilac, Regal Rose and Pink Pirouette. I’ve used my two-way glue pen to colour in the dots on the giraffe and then doused the giraffe with Dazzling Diamonds. The sentiment is from Short & Sweet (stamped in Regal Rose), with three square rhinestone brads to finish it off. It looks even better IRL!

Thanks for looking 🙂
