Birthday Step Card

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.

Today's card is for the following challenges

A Spoonfull Of Sugar ~ Happy Birthday
Papertake weekly ~ Grow your own
Sir Stampalot ~ August challenge ~ Whatever you fancy

This is my first step card, which are fantastic but a little hard to stand up well once decorated.

Materials Used:

Step card ~ redhotbed
Grey bazzill card
Tilda papercraft ~ Springtime 12" pad
Stamps ~ Lili of the valley set 1 oh so girlie, Folk flowers and circle sentiments.
Panduro papier mache numbers
Promarkers for colouring stamped images
Papermania 1.6cm midi flower punch
x cut lace border punch
Pearls ~ Wild orchid craft
Stickles ~ Star Dust
Ribbon and chipboard swirl from crafty stash

Sorry I haven't had much time to blog.  Trying to juggle working from home and the little one off school is proving to be quite a task, and to fit crafting in on top is near enough impossible.
Loving the hols though it's so lovely to have my special girl home.

I will be back next week with a thank you card and then I'm afraid yes Christmas will be starting.  I have loads of crafty ideas for Christmas just buzzing around my head, but unfortunately not much time to do them yet.  The little one loves to craft but unfortunately like most things it lasts about 5 minutes then she is on to the next thing lol! 

Hope your are all having a lovely Summer Holidays and see you again next week

Love Em x
