Happy Birthday to My Nephew

Well, look what the sun brought out in Sydney today - ME! Ha ha...

It has been so long since I last posted, that I almost forgot how to do it. I had a mental blank for a second there.

Anyway, what a gorgeous Winter's day it is. Just perfect for a birthday, and wouldn't you know it, it is someone's birthday. My nephew's! Now when I say 'nephew,' don't think he's a little kid. He's turning 33 today which makes me feel...old! Oh and yes (brag moment), he is a doctor, hence the card.

We'll be off to see him later tonight and here's the card I made for him...


This colours and layout of this card, and the next, were inspired by this card was at The Card Grotto. I love her work. Always so simple and clean. Just perfect.

Well, here is the next one for one of Demi's school friends...

This image is so pretty! All other supplies are from Stampin' Up!:

Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Soft Suede, Marina Mist, Basic Black and watercolour paper.
Stamps: Afterthoughts
Ink: Black StazOn, markers, Blender Pen
Punches: Owl Punch, Two Step Bird Punch, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Large and Small Oval Punches

Well, that's all for today. I'm off to see Mia perform in a school talent quest during her lunch break. How cute! I can't wait.

Catch you all again here real soon.
