A Few 'Cool' Birthday Cards

I bought Creative Stamping Magazine because of the free OMG Teenyboppers Stamps. I find teenagers are so hard to make cards for - especially the boys!

But these stamps of ipods, bikes, games controllers etc will hopefully appeal to them. It was also useful to use up a bit of my ever growing stash too!

I got a bit carried away!

My copy of Simply cards and Papercraft magazine arrived yesterday with the free Hot of the Press 'Home Grown' paper pack - I made a couple of cards with the papers ( see last post). Hubby was working, son was at a head banging festival and daughter was dancing on the Wii, so I had a bit of a crafting session and before I knew it, I had made 22 different cards! There were cards for Dad, thanks you cards, girly birthday cards -  the papers seemed to go with everything including Gorjuss, Diggity dog, Dandelion and Daisy!!

I just had to use up the last few scraps and so made another 8 ATC's to swap - the whole freebie paper pack was used up in just over 24 hours - think I will go for a bit of a lie down now.

Home Grown Cats

My copy of Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine popped through the door this morning complete with a yummy HOTP 'Home Grown' paper set as the free gift - so guess what I've been doing this morning - yup, carpet still needs a hoover, but crafting can't wait, can it!!!

I've teamed them up with a black cat silhouette ( Poppy Stamps die) to make these couple of cards.
