It is my twin neice's 15th birthday today and I have just finished making a card for them. Ever since they were babies, Ilke has always been the 'blue' twin and Zoe, the pink one! I remember when they were little, if you put food on the wrong colour plate they wouldn't eat it as they thought it wasn't theirs! They have grown since then, but they secretly cling to the idea as they often wear the same style clothes only a different colour.
I made this card using the Artistic Etchings stamp set which I love. The Eiffel Tower is relevant to them as their dad is taking them on a 2 week tour of Europe, darling! Wow. When I was 15, we went camping at Woy Woy for our holidays!
I used Blushing Bride and Baja Breeze cardstock teamed with Very Vanilla. I used my ever-handy Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the Eiffel Tower in the middle and also the letters from the Sweet Shoppe stamp set. The inks were Crumbcake, Early Expresso, Blushing Bride and Baja Breeze. The background stamp is En Francais.
Better go and wrap their presents.

Last night I held a Stampin'Up! part at my sister's house. We made a card using Circle Circus stamp set. It was so much fun and so interesting to see the creativity everyone has inside them. All of the ladies that came had never stamped before, so they had a great time cutting, gluing and stamping.
Now, to find 7 more kids that are making their Confimation...
I will be making this card at 2 of the parties I will be demonstrating at in June.

I just love the combination of purple and green. The card below was inspired by a card I saw on Splitcoast Stampers (that's a website that all the stampers 'in-the-know' look at for inspiration!) and it's from a lady called Vicky Wright. I haven't made a card in a while as I have been too busy sitting in my new recliners! (They are SO hard to get out of!) So I made this card last night in preparation for a few parties I'm hosting this month. If you would like to make this card, I will be hosting a party at 7pm on Friday, 24th June at my house in Wahroonga. (You can even have a go in one of my recliners!)
