Congratulations on a wedding

A wedding congratulation 
with Tim Holtz Crazy Birds.

The inside of the card says
"Nyd dagen -
den bliver ikke genudsendt"
(enjoy this day -
there are no re-runs

I just had the lovely news that my best friends'  oldest daughter is getting married this Saturday, no big celebration, understandably as they only just had a baby daughter - still I want to send them my warmest thoughts together with some flowers.

Party time ...... with Mama Elephant

Partying with Mama Elephant
Ella and Friends.

This card had a hard time coming to me and it was actually sitting on display on my bookcase for quite some time, before I could do the finishing touches. 

A few mishaps were covered by the small umbrella and the cloud. 

A bottle tag for a giftbag

A bag full of......
and a note to the recipient using a bottle tag.

As guest at a birthday party I wanted to bring some Jerusalem artichokes along for the host and hostess. I didn't have time for a regular card so I grabbed a bottle tag from my stash and it fitted nicely around the neck of the paper bag. 

I will have to do more bottle tags................

Time for two.......

with Mama Elephant honey bunnies.

Translation of the Danish text is: 
Time for each other is a good time.

My first attempt with the speech bubble and computer text brought to life by the cute bunnies.

Birdies saying congrats

Birds from 'Your Own Scrap'

Whenever I get new stamps, I always try them out on a piece of scrap paper, usually just only just to through them out. The birds were just too cute to end up in the trash bin. The try-outs were coloured and turned into a card with a small handwritten 'tillykke' Danish for congrats.

Sending smiles

Sending smiles..........................

with Mama Elephant and Kaboks die

When my daughter-in-law asked me for a card for a baby christening, I did a few variations, practising for all of the baby cards to come. With a little dimension behind the 'smile', the blue paper is actually showing behind the die cut smile.
