Happy 40th Birthday Claire.

Good Morning all.
This is one of my rare Blogging moments, I made this card for my daughter Helen to give to My elder daughters 40th Birthday Today,  I really enjoyed making this card lots of sparkle and pretty things.  The stamps i used were freebies from a magazine embossed with Hologram Super Sparkle embossing powder.  The white flowers and Butterfly are by Sarah Hurley,  The beautiful butterfly and bead charm was made by my daughter Helen.   I still make lots of cards but don't always get the time to photograph and blog them.  Where does all that time go when you are retired.!!

This second card i made with using the drawing facility on the Silhouette Cameo.  I love this machine and when they introduced the latest update I was a bit worried about doing it but so far so good.  This card is from Eddie and I for Claire's Birthday.  I really enjoyed doing both of these cards as they are for a very special person.  Mu daughter has a blog and designs for magazines you can find her blog  HERE

Thank you for passing by and looking.

  1. It's lovely to see you Joan.

  2. Gorgeous cards Joan, really pretty, xxxx

  3. Hi mum, thank you so much to you and Helen for the beautiful cards, love them both (and the words inside xx)

    I can't believe that the silhouette drew the design in there, I was wondering where the design came from, its so pretty. (it's perfect for colouring ... I was tempted to get my pens out when I opened the card hehe!)
    The more you show me what this super machine can do the more tempted am by it 😉

  4. Beautiful,glad to see you back again.
