As we had severe weather and was cold what better way to spend the time than making cards as had an anniversary, mothers day and another birthday approaching.
I just love making Eclipse Cards as they are really effective and so easy to make and more personal to the recipient of them.

Today I made 2 more eclipse cards for family members birthdays. To be honest I am not 100% happy with these as looking back at them I should of added black outline on the letters. But I take this as a learning curve and will remember to do this next time.
Am seeing all these wonderful Eclipse Cards in pretty much most groups I am in on Facebook. I was resisting ordering these 5cm letters but gave in and I am so glad I did. I adore these dies and can see these will be used very often.
So time to give them a go ! I already had this rainbow background already done as was using it for another card idea which just never happened but maybe that was a blessing ?
Anyway this is the outcome.. I just love these eclipse cards and already thinking of christmas ideas for these !
Supplies :- Distress Oxides, General sentiment stamp, 5cm Alphabet Cutting Dies
As you know ( or may not know ) My gorgeous Goddaughter is approaching 1 ( where has that year gone ?? ) As her birthday cake is Fairy / Butterfly Themed, I was asked if I could make some Butterfly cupcake toppers.
This is what I made. Think it will fit in with the theme beautifully
Following on from my Fairy and Spaceman Cards, I made this for a special little lady who will be celebrating her 1st birthday
Supplies :- Lawn Fawn Friends Stamp and die, MFT Magical Unicorns stamp and die set,
Love Die ( Ebay ) Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens
I have been challenged to make this Cupcake Bouquet
It looks easy, well making the cupcakes is for me BUT however whether I can get the cakes on stay on the polystyrene ball is another matter !
And just to top it off my God Daughter kindly said ” If this comes out fine you will be making lots for christening ” ! Funny how I did not laugh at her comment lol.
Anyway I think this makes a wonderful … wonderful ?! since when do I use that word ! But yes it makes a wonderful Birthday, Mother’s Day, Christening etc floral / cake display and present.
If mine is successful I will post a photo as making one for Mother’s Day
Go on give it a go !
So it is my Birthday …. and how did i spend it ?
Well i was asked to make 50 yes 50 Cake Pops – the bane of my life for a christening. I swear this is the last time i make these things. Yes they may look cute and all that but they are so time consuming to make and can make me mad when they fall off the stick when dipping into candy melts. NO MORE !!
25 were Vanilla and 25 Red Velvet
But to make up for this hard work look at the goodies i got for my birthday !
Now i know some may say or think that the Die Cutter is small but honestly for a newbie like me this is perfect, but i have decided to splash out maybe next year if all goes well on a slightly bigger die cutter.
