Life is Good ...

Howdy all!! I can not believe it is almost the end of another month!!! Where does the time go!?!?!?  So thought I'd better just pop in to share some birthday cards I made for my2angels!

Now for some reason I love working with green papers!! It crops up in my creations ALL the time!!! And green spots like these are one of my absolute favourites!

This card has been made using Core-dinations Snowflake cardstock and Pink Paislee Hometown, Green Acres paper, both sides of this paper are great, I used the spotted side on my August sketch layout.  I’ve added one of the Summer Border Stickers with Glitter (flags) and some Punch Outs (which are now unfortunately out of stock), a cute boy on a skateboard and the journaling tag. I mounted the boy punch out on black cardstock and used Foam Mounting Tape to raise it off the card. I again used Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink around the edges of my papers and the white card. I finished off with a Bo Bunny ‘Life is Good’ sticker for my greeting.

My second card is a bright red card using more of the Pink Paislee Hometown Summer range, this time Heatwave. This is also a real ‘happy’ paper, perfect for birthday cards and layouts!
I punched the edge of my card, made using Core-dinations Snowflake cardstock, I then cut the Heatwave paper to fit and again punched the edge of it to match my card. I cut my paper to leave some white showing on both sides of the card and then added a ‘watermelon’ border from the PP Hometown Summer Border Stickers with Glitter. However, I then covered the middles of the watermelons with ‘asterisks’ from the Black AC Thickers Daiquiri alpha and added a Bo Bunny Ad Lib Leaf sticker.
The greeting is a small sticker stuck on with Foam Mounting Tape to which I have added a My2Angels Rainbows with Cloud charm above and a rub on ‘To You’ below. I used a black pen to ‘stitch’ around the edges of the patterned paper on both sides.

Inside the card, I added a slim strip of the Heatwave paper and a small circle sticker and again pen ‘stitched’ around it.

Well that's all for now, have a great weekend (I am thinking that I am going to have a great one!?!) 
Back soon

'Angelic' Birthday Celebrations ...

Well sorry to say I have been MIA again, haven't I?!?!? There just doesn't seem to be enough time in the day these days, so unfortunately my 'me' time gets put on hold!! Think we all know that scenario don't we?!?! 
Oh well enough excuses .... this month is 'Birthday' month at My2Angels, the lovely Tracy has been trading for 3 years this month (Happy Birthday T!) and she wanted to celebrate with her customers. So for August there are some super specials on in the shop, check them out HERE (discounted papers, birthday theme products etc etc)  plus we are also running a couple of comps, a SKETCH COMPETITION ... and a SHOW US YOUR CHARM challenge, so without further ado here is my take on the great sketch supplied by my fellow DT-er Jess.
Of course, still running with the Birthday theme, I scrapped a photo of my oldest son's very FIRST Birthday Party!!! Cute eh?!?!?! AND nearly 14 years ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yikes where does the time go?!?!?!?!? 
 I have used some papers I have had for a while and ABSOLUTELY love, Bo Bunny’s Ad Lib range, which are just such ‘happy’ papers ... do check out what Tracy has left in and snap them up, you won’t be sorry. I have also used some of the stickers from the same range for my little words and word strips.  I’ve added a Boy with Cap charm on one of my word strips. 
The green spotted paper (love spotted papers) is Pink Paislee’s Hometown, Summer Green Acres and the oval border strip is from the same range, Border Stickers with glitter. Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink has been used to edge my papers and the pin is a My2Angels original, Grunge Date Pins, which I have covered with a circle sticker and a word sticker, ‘wonder’. 

Other alphas used are my favourite AC Thickers Daiquiri in both Black and Green. The green bracket and letters I have used have been glossed with some Inkssentials Glossy Accents.  I also used this to highlight a few other things,  the ‘o’ in wonder, the camera on my word strips, the candle, the letters ‘st’ and the flowers on the BB paper. To finish I doodled around the scalloped edge of my white background.

So why don't you have a go and then upload your takes to the My2Angels gallery (the sketch must use some products available from M2A of course and its only open to Aus residents ... sorry!) 

Thanks for looking .... be back later in the month with some Birthday Cards!!
Take care in this crazy world
