Big Blooms and mounting excitement!

A couple of cards this week made with the big Papermania die cut blooms with button centres

Soon I will be off on a girly trip to New York to celebrate my 50th birthday. It will be hard to fit in all the sightseeing and shopping into just a few days, but we will! 

However, I will be foregoing a trip on the Staten Island Ferry to go craft shopping - and first on the list is Michaels!! I'm leaving plenty of space in the suitcase for a new handbag and lots of Christmas crafting items.

My sisters New York themed birthday card

My sisters birthday is just 4 days after mine and a week after my sons, so August is an expensive time for my family!

As I am 50 this year, we are going on a girly shopping trip to New York later this month with my Mum and Aunt - no boys allowed!

I have never been there before, so really looking forward to seeing the sites and grabbing a few bargains. I have had these Debbi Moore designs for a while but they are ideal for my sisters card, so I hope she likes it!

My Sons 20th Birthday Card

This year I am having a joint 70th birthday party with my son - he will be 20 and I'm 50 three days later!

This is his card and like most young men he loves his  black Converse boots, so when I saw these embellishments I had to get them for his card.
