Mummy can craft too

Last weekend I had a Come and Craft afternoon for friends.  I didn't get much crafting done as such of my own, but was able to help to make this fabulous card!

My good friend Vicki wanted a card for her son's first birthday in August... so I managed to convince her to come round and make it for herself.  This is the second card she has had a go at making and to be honest I'm really pleased that she seems to be enjoying it, after the initial reluctance and continually telling me she isn't creative, this is totally her own design... with just a few pointers from me!  I actually want to CASE this myself, but the only 1 year old I know is Jamie, and he probably doesn't want 2 cards exactly the same :(!

Vicki has used an A5 sized Bashful Blue card base.  The sentiment from the Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set (hostess pounds only) has been stamped at the top in Pacific Point ink.  The lettering for JAMIE was cut from Daffodil Delight card scraps using the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet dies.  Vicki then cut out the 1 by hand, using a printed letter for a template, the ballons are also cut by hand after being stamped onto designer paper scraps using the Crazy for Cupcakes 'balloon' image.  Finally the Bakers Twine from the Summer mini catalogue works well to create the strings for the balloons.

I love it... and I know Vicki is secretly pleased with her creation too.... in fact she made another card straight after this one as well, and came back for more this week :).
