Happy B-Day Lily

 Good morning today I have a birthday card that I made for my niece Lily .   I don’t see Lily very much because she goes to college in Southern California .  However this weekend her soccer team played close by.  It was so fun to see her in action and to be able to handle give her birthday card.
 I began with a Paper Source card base. It is a 5.5” square with an inside pocket. I cut the fan using an AG die.  The papers and sentiment are also AG.  I added Pink Champagne crinkle ribbon and a Vintage button from the DL.ART Store.

My friend's son is getting married in a few weeks.  They are having a very smal wedding and they requested money towards their honeymoon in liue of traditional gifts.  On the website The Knot there were several Honeymoon activities you could contribute to.  I decided to create frames for some of the activities and I added an envelope with cash in it behind.  All of the frames and images are from Cricut Design Space.

I am entering this into the DL.ART September Linky Challenge

Stella is visiting from London

My cousin Bridget and her daughter Stella came from London to celebrate Stella's 14th Birthday.  We had so much fun together.  I grew up in Bristol, England, moved to America when I was 10.  I didn't have andy cousins close by.  The last time I saw bridget was 16 years ago.  We have such a great connection.  I am planning a trip to London in the next year or two.  We went to Carmel for the day.  Stella loves to shop, the outlets were the perfect place for birthday shopping.
Bridget helped me make a special box card for stella.
I made this using Cricut Access.  The ballon dies are MCT

It has been a while since I posted anything.  I am finding it dificult to share a laptop with my husband.  Hopefully that situation will be remedied soon.  I just received Ana Griffins Bohemian Dies and Paisley papers.  They are so much fun to play with .  I also used the Tassle die set.

My friend went to the bakery to get a small unicorn themed cake for her 3 year old granddaughter's birthday.  It was very expensive.  So I made her this cake topper using Cricut Access in Design Space.  It turned out so darn cute
