Birthday Mice - With Love

Now this is the sort of card I like to make - everything already in my stash and using magazine freebies too! Pity that all my efforts aren't as economical as this one but then that wouldn't be any fun would it?

The image is from a set of 20 pre-stamped ones that were a magazine freebie and I used ProMarkers to colour in. The sentiment is also a magazine freebie from quite a while ago as is the pink flowered paper. I used my Martha Stewart heart punch along the RH side and the tiny butterflies are made with an X-Cut punch.

Talking of freebies - have you seen the latest Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine - Issue 111. I bought it yesterday and there's a lovely 6x6 embossing folder and a stamp, both with a Peacock theme. Haven't had time to try them out yet but I'm sure it won't be long.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking !

Never Too Old...

........for Cupcake!  What a great sentiment and a fab stamp from Lili of the Valley. This will be getting a lot of use.

I really enjoyed colouring this image and added glamour dust to the wings and the icing for extra sparkle. I used a Spellbinders plain circle matted it onto this Cheery Lynn Sunflower die. It is a lovely die but a real pain to cut - it needs a number of goes through the machine, turning each time but it's worth persevering with. The flowers and leaves are Martha Stewart punches and the butterflies at the corner are part of this Butterfly Vine Border by Memory Box. I added plenty of gems and pink spotted ribbon to finish off.
