Well July is certainly birthday month in our house. My late Mum and Dads were on the 5th and 6th of July, Daughter the 8th and Grandson on the 10th....Perhaps I should have said 'One week in July' is birthday week in our family. August also has its own family thing too.. My husband and Son's Birthday are on the same day too.

I have made cards for my daughter and grandson for their birthdays and forgot to take a photo before I wrote in them so please forgive me . As I said in the last blog that I liked the shape of that particular card but wanted to try a different technique that I hadn't done for a while. Embossing on embossing. I put cardstock through the Big shot with an embossing folder then with the brayer went over the top of the 'bumps' with Versa Mark and then silver embossing powder....I found a lovely angel on an oval and though I would use that. Pink , Silver and Black go well together and make quite an elegant card. Grandsons card is to fit in with the theme of the party....Pirates!!....As I didn't have a Pirate stamp I used a picture of a pirate ship , wrapping paper for the pirate and a photo of the little man himself. Must buy some pirate and more teenage stamps on my next order to Stampin' Up.The inside of the card I have featured balloons spelling his name, 3 year olds just love to see their names . I used alphabet stamps and circle punches to achieve this look. Well off for a couple of weeks visiting Grandchildren, and when I come home it is full swing into Stampin' Up workshops and I have a month of teaching at Chat and Craft.....Anyone interested in either?????  contact me and I will let you know when and where they are. Don't forget if you would like to see our Catalogue or have a few friends for a Stampin good time where you get to make and take home a card or something that we have made ...give me a call.
