It's Your Birthday

It's a holiday here in Canada (Victoria Day) and I'm thrilled to have a day off!  The past few weeks have been especially busy.  We've been away the last three weekends and I've been out of town for various PD events with work two weeks in a row.  It's GOOD to be home!

This week's challenge at My Craft Spot is Ribbon & Twine.  Here's a chance to dress up your cards!


I made this set for a friend of my middle guy. When Cricut had their "link your Gypsy to Cricut Craft Room" promotion earlier this month, I took advantage of the $20 gift card that came along with it and purchased the digital version of Live Simply.  The little turtle and frame are on that cartridge.  I used a variety of embossing folders on my card and gift card holder too.


I layered my doily on some fabulous Caribbean crinkle ribbon and Strawberry Cupcake baker's twine from My Craft Spot.  The little doily on my card was created with the My Craft Spot Tiny Doilies metal dies set and stamped with a sentiment from the Stampin' Around Spring stamp set.  All the Stampin' Around sets from My Craft Spot are designed to fit the Tiny Doilies metal dies.  They're so pretty and can be used in so many ways!  I punched a little flower and added a gem for the middle of mine but there are also a variety of fantastic little images on the Stampin' Around sets that could be used too.

 

The sentiment on the gift card holder is from My Craft Spot's Sweet Sentiments Set #1.  

Please head over to My Craft Spot to see the rest of the creations by the design team.  You've got a week to link up your Ribbon & Twine project to be eligible to win this week's prize.

Loving this card Kate! I love that little turtle. I forget about that cartridge sometimes.

Glad you've got a holiday to cool your jets a bit, so be sure to rest well!

Enjoy your week!

I've missed you. I'm glad you're back creating. I have this cart and I can't say that very often. Guess I'd better take a look at it.

My dear friend, I love everything about this! The designs, the colors, the beautiful embossing.. everything is just perfect for a birthday. The sentiment atop the ribbon looks amazing! (Especially with that gorgeous twine cascading down...) :o) Beautifully done as always, Kate! I miss you and think of you often! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
