Bunting and Banners...143

Hello there,
Today over at it's owner sheri's turn to choose the challenge and she's picked a " good un" as we say. It's to use either a banner or bunting on your card or project. Now this will be fun to see all your entries. There are so many dies out there so let's see how many different ones you use.

Here is my card it has been made for Big Sister Beverley who celebrated a couple of days ago. Her and her hubby have purchased one of those coffee pod machines that a certain Mr Clooney advertises and she loves it ☺️😍. So when I saw this cute little digi over on the Bestie site I had to buy it. I know so many people who love a coffee just a shame there isn't a guy one out there as my better half is addicted too.

The card I made is a 7 x 7, I coloured her in using a lot of muted coloured Promarker pens with the papers in mind. I have used my Verve stamps on here to make the Java strip, sentiment and their die to cut the cup out. I even used the wet cup stain to make the background paper and then inked the edges. The banner was a birthday gift from my dear friend and I cut it out twice to insert the blue. Others dies from Spellbinders have been used too.

This card is using banners. I needed a simple girly birthday card so for this I used some free papers along with some gems. The sentiment is the free stamp that came with the papers. I made the flower using a SB die.

Right now it's your turn to join in, so pop over to see the other girls makes and then post your creation .

Challenge 142 Birthday Bash

Hi There,
this time over on it is Design Team Sister Raquel's turn to pick the challenge and this time she has chosen Birthday's . We must include elements to do with Birthdays.

This time I decided to do a layout of my Dad's 80th Birthday. We all went up there and took afternoon tea with him and my Mum in a lovely old hotel on the promenade in Llandudno.

He use to drive buses for a living so his birthday cake was just like one. He also in his youth played cricket hence the umpire and the "80 Not Out" but his one other love (other than my Mum) was his garden.
On the layout I have used lots of bits and bobs and I think he'll love it when he sees it.
Right now its your turn to join in, but do checkout the other girls birthday treats.
