Garden Party!

Hi Bloggers!
Here are some invites I have made for a friend at work, It is her Daughter Lexi's 1st birthday on Saturday, So I wanted to make the cards pink and girly and simple.

Here are my atc's for The Stamp Man this month the theme is In the garden so what else to do than a secret garden, I love the finished look of the movers and shapers padlock, I think they are very cute!
Thank you Tracey for lending me your cute little stamps for the backgrounds.

Thank you for looking,

Happy Birthday Anita!!!!

Here is the Birthday Card I made for Anita I met Anita through crafting too:).

This is the gift I made for Anita. I do apologise I forgot to photo it before I added the feet and the plastic front so the pictures aren't the best, I am very pleased with the finished product, in fact I didn't want to give it away but I know it has gone to a loving home and I can pop and see it whenever I like :)

I used all of my Favourite embellishments on the Configurations box, in the picture below you can see a big Prima flower and can only just see a Tim Holtz pen nib, in the following hole you can see a teeny vase that I painted in Picket fence crackle paint and inked with Victorian velvet Distress ink. I added tint roses to the vase.

In the next hole is another Prima flower and some Prima bling!

In this hole I added a cotton spool cut with the Tim Holtz Die, I added thread and a pin and some beautiful scissors to remind us of our favourite craft shop Running With Scissors.

Next is a great big bloom which was inked with Victorian velvet and sprayed with glimmer mist, I added a teeny bottle filled with beads.

And a photo of the blingy Curio Knob with lots of bling dangling from it.

Nearly all of the supplies are from Running with Scissors and the papers are sold in RWS too, these were a gift from Tracey.

 Thank you they are devine. and I made sure I kept a cutting for me :)

I hope you like it and sorry I didn't get anymore pictures I think my lovely friend Tracey took some for me when we had to dismantle the box as a stray bit of glue jumped in it!
