Butterfly Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone.

I just got home last week from a well deserved holiday and straight back to work I went. I didn’t want to leave the sun behind and head back to the real world but I had to.

Well this week was my friend’s birthday and every year we go camping to celebrate the occasion. Camp fire, food, drinks, stars and of course s’mores.

I bought her a balloon and whipped up this simple birthday card for her.

I used  Recollections cardstock and my Indentz Vine 1 folder to emboss the background, then stamped one of the butterflies from Inkadinkado Butterflies stamp set in StazOn Teal Blue ink. I decided to cut out the butterfly with the Spellbinders Peony Die set and added some popdots.

The sentiment is from Pink By Design’s Sibling Love stamp set, cut out with the Spellbinders Grommet Tags and attached using Divine Twine in Aqua.

The inside sentiment comes from Studio G, I think.

So here are some Butterfly Birthday Wishes!!!!

To another great year of new adventures and treasured memories.

Camping under the stars

Oh what fun….. at the end of the week my friend’s daughter is going to Girl Guide Camp. I can remember going to girl guide camp as a young girl and having the time of my life.

So to wish her the time of her life with lots of great adventures, making new friends and earning badges I made her this card.

Isn’t it cute? I used Recollections and Bazzill Cardstock for the base and the background I cut from a 12×12. The fire is a sticker embellishment from Michaels.

This is part of the Bo Bunny Camp A Lotpaper and embellishment collection. I matted a cardstock sticker  from the Fireside Fun Sticker Sheet…… I love, love, love this collection. I love the little sign by the tents that says  “Welcome Campers”.

I made a 3″ girl guide from the Paper Doll Dress Up and the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridges. To make the guide tie I used the smallest maple leaf stamp I had and used Memento Bahama Blue ink.

And if you’re like me …. you can’t draw, so I used Peachy Keen’s PK490 Everyday Character Faces Assortment. I gave her some pink cheeks and used my Sukura White Gelly Roll pen for the eyes.

I used DecoArt Snow Writer to make the marshmallows and then used chalk to make them “roasted”… heeeheee.

I used the Spellbinders Grommet Tags and the Peony Dies, stamped and colored with asstorted Tombows and Copics. The sentiment is Happy Camper from Imaginisce.

I added a couple of buttons… the tree and the blue tent as “grommets”.

Well I sure hope she has the best time at camp and brings home lots of great memories. I know I did.

I will be Linking Up to Sarah Hamer’s Link Up Tuesday... you should head on over and check out what everybody has been up to.
