May The Force Be With You

Today is a special day! It is my hubby's 40th birthday!
Happy Birthday Jeroen xxx
We were woken early by my youngest son saying to my eldest son "Its Daddy's Birthday!" - it was so sweet. Only four years old and he knew today was special from the moment he opened his little eyes. Love you guys!


As he is a sci fi buff, when I saw this adorable Saturated Canary digi "May the force by in you" I knew this was the stamp for his birthday card. 


My two little people told me that I coloured the light sabres in the wrong colour - oops! Sorry. Apparently they should have been green. 


The papers are MME, from my favourite stack. I only have a few sheets of this gorgeous paper left. I dont know if you can get it anymore though. 


All of the die cuts are Magnolia Doo Hickey dies except the cogs, that one is MFT. 
The sentiment is Magnolia and the date stamp is a SMASH one.


The cotton tape, hessian trim, seam binding, liquid pearls and jute string are all from The Ribbon Girl.

It was so much fun to make a male card for a change. 
I have a couple more coming in the future to look forward to with two little boys having birthdays in the coming months. 

I'll be back on Tuesday with my card for MDUC and there is a Magnolia stamp club set waiting for me at the Post Office too! Woohoo, can't wait for it to open on Tuesday so I can play. 

Until later,
Have a good Easter weekend.

Happy 5th Birthday to MDUC!

Hi there everyone! I'm finally here with my card for MDUC's 5th birthday! 
This fortnight the challenge at MDUC turns 5 years old, something we're very proud of. 

Unfortunately it is also a bitter sweet birthday as our DT "Mum" Debbie P is leaving us :( 
Debbie has been at MDUC since the very beginning. Karen and I came in 12 months later. She has worked tirelessly and with so much love behind the scenes for the DT. She means the world to us and her absence is going to be very much missed. 

We are VERY lucky to call her our friend but there are other exciting things in store for Debbie down the track. Debbie Hunny, we miss you already. 


My card for the challenge is actually a gift for Debbie and I have three little Tilda's on the front who are supposed to represent Debbie, Karen and myself. 


The papers are old Pink Paislee "Sweetness" from about 3 years ago :) I've used one of my MS Punch around the page sets for the pretty doily edge and all of the papers have had a little touch of white paint added to soften them. 


Most of the embellishments are from The Ribbon Girl. I've also used some Doo Hickey dies and my trusty sewing machine to stitch around the edges. 


There is still a week to go for the challenge even though I am a little late in posting my card. We're sponsored by Magnolia for our birthday challenge so pop on over and check out the work by the amazing DT, I love our girls, they are so loyal and wonderful, as much as they are talented. 
I hope you're inspired to join us and help celebrate our 5th birthday challenge 

Until later, 
Have a great week, Hugs x
