Everything Eleanor for Birthdays.

I just want to say here and now that I love inviting Eleanor along to birthdays! She is so easy to get along with.
Yes I am talking about Everything Eleanor!! the elegant stamp set on page 66 of the main catalogue of course! LOL.
If you have to make a special birthday card for someone this is one of my favourite sets to use.
Come and see a couple of the cards I have made for special friends lately.

This one was made for a special friend who loves everything PINK and VINTAGE.
I used the dictionary big stamp in the background and the ink spots from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set p. 109.

Then I made this one for a special Stampin Up friend who loves purple and butterflies.

This time I used designer paper from the Modern Medley pack and a paper doily for the background.

This is one of the gifts I sent with it.
 A pack of  Card Toppers made with the Sketched Birthday Stamp Set on page. 13 of the catalogue. These are really fun to make.

If you have a special card you need to make, maybe Everything Eleanor could be your friend too?!
I know she would be happy to help you make something beautiful.
I love hearing from you so please drop me a line if you like these cards or would like to know a little more.

Well we are back from are 5 day trip to Auckland New Zealand. What a whirlwind trip that was!! From the minute we stepped off the plane we were socializing with family and friends and it didn't stop the whole time we were there. Phew. Needed to come home just to have a rest. hehe.
Our main reason for going was to attend a 50th birthday celebration. It was a 70's theme party. Would you like to see us dressed in our outfits???
