May The Force Be With You

Today is a special day! It is my hubby's 40th birthday!
Happy Birthday Jeroen xxx
We were woken early by my youngest son saying to my eldest son "Its Daddy's Birthday!" - it was so sweet. Only four years old and he knew today was special from the moment he opened his little eyes. Love you guys!


As he is a sci fi buff, when I saw this adorable Saturated Canary digi "May the force by in you" I knew this was the stamp for his birthday card. 


My two little people told me that I coloured the light sabres in the wrong colour - oops! Sorry. Apparently they should have been green. 


The papers are MME, from my favourite stack. I only have a few sheets of this gorgeous paper left. I dont know if you can get it anymore though. 


All of the die cuts are Magnolia Doo Hickey dies except the cogs, that one is MFT. 
The sentiment is Magnolia and the date stamp is a SMASH one.


The cotton tape, hessian trim, seam binding, liquid pearls and jute string are all from The Ribbon Girl.

It was so much fun to make a male card for a change. 
I have a couple more coming in the future to look forward to with two little boys having birthdays in the coming months. 

I'll be back on Tuesday with my card for MDUC and there is a Magnolia stamp club set waiting for me at the Post Office too! Woohoo, can't wait for it to open on Tuesday so I can play. 

Until later,
Have a good Easter weekend. 
Hugs x

The Ribbon Girl Card Challenge - Spring!

Hello everyone :o)
Did you enjoy the Magnolia DT blog hop? It was great for the team to get together and have some fun. Be sure to look out for the next one on the 15th of April.
I am a teeny bit late with my card this week, I've been down with a sinus infection all week :( I wish it would just go away! Anyway, on a much more fun topic.... 



The sponsors of the challenge are: LOTV and The Ribbon Girl:



For my card I have used Butterfly Tilda from Butterfly Dreams Collection and coloured her black and white using Copics (W 0 - 7), except for the butterfly which is in colour. 


Lots of gorgeous Ribbon Girl goodies here ..... 
Kylie added  Memo pins, Kort and Godt Rolled Paper Flowers, Beaded stamen Mocha, 20mm Ivory Pearl and Lace trim, Natural Button Twine, 16mm Pink Ruffle Edge ribbon


And Magnolia Doo Hickey dies as well. 


I hope you get a chance to come and join us this week at The Ribbon Girl! 
I'll be back in a couple of days.
