Happy Birthday Lily

Hi everyone, hope you have had a nice weekend. Ours was, as usual , packed with football and rugby. Now both children are playing both sports, there's no chance for a break!

I've spoken before about the friends we made when our eldest son was a baby and last week one of the children turned 8. I made her a unicorn card:

The image is from a Hunkydory Little Book. I cut it down so it would fit on a 6x6 card. The fabulous rainbow papers are from Trimcraft's Simply Creative Play Days pad. I simply added some sequins and gems.

I was also asked to make a card by her parents. The brief was a purple bike and butterflies:

I found the digi stamp on Etsy and coloured it with Spectrum Noir markers. The butterflies were cut using First Edition dies and the papers and gems are from Trimcraft's Back to Basic range (I mixed from the purple and berry blush collections).

Both cards were well received by the birthday girl. It's hard to believe that the babies we met at baby group are now so grown up!

Thank you for visiting today and for all your lovely comments x
