Happy Birthday Ruby

Hi all,

Hope you're getting prepared for Christmas :)  It's certainly festive around here.  The tree has been up and decorated since Sunday 30 November and the candles are there in the hearth (not lit) whilst Riley is around.

Anyway, it was Riley's friend's birthday at the weekend, so what better way than to surprise her with a card and a present :)

Hopefully her card will be admired and appreciated more by her parents ;)  and the presents go down a treat :)  Riley and Ruby sat in the lounge munching on a pork strip each!  I think they were in doggy heaven...

Happy 1st Birthday Sabia

Hi there,

I recently made a commissioned birthday card for a special girl turning 1 years old today.  I had strict guidelines on what this card needed to have on it:  Cute girl to resemble Sabia coloured in to match her favourite outfits, bunting with her name, age of her birthday, hearts, ice cream, butterfly, her dog and cat and her teddy bear.

Hopefully she'll love the card!  

Here it is below:


Hope you like.

Happy Birthday Alfie

Hi there,

Thought I'd share a birthday card that I made for my godson recently who is celebrating his 6th birthday today!  

He's football mad and apparently he's into Brazil at the moment, so what would be more fitting than a little footie player in the Brazilian kit.  (Hopefully I've done him justice).

Here's the card I made below from various Stampin' Up! products current and retired along with a few other bits:

Birthday Card 


Hope you're keeping well.  Enjoy the weekend... off to a Wedding today, so be back another time with the card :)

Bye for now,

A Rose Is A Rose Commission.

So, as you know last month I had my own wedding and I've loved making lots for it.  I had recently been in touch with a bride-to-be who was after some Kath Kidston style envelopes and I decided to help her with the use of the two-step stamping technique with a favourite retired stamp set of mine: A Rose Is A Rose to create her floral envelopes.  It really was a labour of love as it's a time consuming job, plus I had x75 envelopes to stamp which kept me rather busy! lol.

Anyway, I'm really pleased how these turned out and so was the bride-to-be.  Here are a few pictures of the finished envelopes ready for her Save The Date postcards.

A Rose Is A Rose




If you would like a commission for a special event/occasion, please let me know as I'd only be too happy to help :)

Have a good weekend,

Alex
