It's been a busy week here this past week. There's been something for everyone... birthday celebrations for the young and not so young, Friday 13th sleepovers, a Hawaiian night and a family farewell BBQ.
Between the birthday cake making and party organising there has been little time for creating so when I found that I had an hour...while baking three birthday cakes I set to making two birthday cards.
During the week there was two challenges that I wanted to join in with so I decided to combine them. The first challenge was from Jennifer's blog event, to keep it clean and simple. The next challenge was from Clearly Besotted where "anything goes". So I combined Clearly Besotted Stamps with Jennifer's Clean and Simple.
I've used my Tim Holtz stencil and inks for creating backgrounds on layouts and wanted to try out the same technique for cards.
.....and in case you wondered I did forget all about one of the cakes in the oven...luckily I caught it in the nick of time!
