Another August Birthday

Shamefully I ran out of time to make my sister a birthday card and had to buy one. Yet another August birthday was just around the corner, so I made this card for my auntie. I really liked these papers and thought they would be suitable for an older lady (my auntie is in her 80's so I wasn't exactly sure what to do for her - didn't think a magnolia card would really have suited her).

I used the following:

  • Papermania Happy Days paper
  • Nesties - Labels fourteen
  • Penny Black Happy Birthday stamp here
  • Cheery Lynn leaf die
  • Flower from wild orchid
Hopefully I'll be able to make some more cards soon amongst the other bits I'm making. I still have a half finished little girls dress that needs buttons! I'll post a pic once I've added the buttons...

A Few Rushed Birthday Cards...

I don't know what it is about August but it seems that everyone I know seems to have a birthday this month. As is usual for me I always leave things to the last minute. Two of my closest friends have birthdays on the 11th and 13th, and OH's sisters 40th was on the 17th. On top of that my little sister is 18 in two days (still haven't made her card!).

Anyhoo, all three decided to go out on Friday so I had to go from the meal for the 40th to meet my other two friends straight after. I got back from work at 5.15 and had to make three cards and turn up for dinner at 7.30. I somehow managed to do it but it was really rushed and I know the cards could have been much better if I'd given myself longer. Never mind!

Anyhoo, here they are:
