Birthday cards

There is something about making birthday is not important if it is  for someone I know or if I make it for some friend's friend....I am always trying to make them personal and I like making them funny...although there is something special in those elegant ones I always make for my dear Granny :)

Since I was at home not feeling well this week I made two birthday cards just to occupy myself and to stop for a while with my marathon of "Reign" and "Once Upon A Time" (I am a fan of both shows) and OK I have to say I also watched "Devious Maids" :) (Guilty pleasures)

I decided  to post them both, although one card is still not with its recepient, but she will forgive me... it is for a good cause ... two birthday related challenges I would love to apply my own birthday cards :)

I believe it is really appropriate :)


My dear friend Tina stamped and sent me this little creature ...I believe it is a wolf and umbrella from ME Up and Away stamp set ( and I also added sentiments from Avery Elle Bring On the Cake set ( This set is so special to me cause I got it as a thank you note from a person I truly admire..Mrs Lucy Abrams...I swear I feel like a stalker when I talk about her but that girl truly inspires me....she makes cards that are so beautiful and I just wish I will be able to be as half as good as she... She is such a nice person....and I thank her for being so nice to me....

The paper and lace I used are from my own stash, lace sent by my dear Tina and ribbon taken from crafty store here in Zagreb....I hope you like it...

Also this card will also be applied to the:

The second card is also for the:

It is a birthday card and it is a shaker one (I love love shaker ones).


Once again my Tina sent me this ME Tiny heroes (  stamped on paper (that girl is a treasure I tell you). I even used my Distress Inks and stars she cut out for me and paper I won in Create a Smile giveaway and I really really hope the girl who got this card is happy now :)

I apologize for bad quality of my photos. I am still learning how to make good ones with my phone :)

Hope you like them both, if you do leave some love

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year, dear readers, may 2016 be the best year of your life...I wish you health, happiness, love and lots of nice things..............

My New Year started with a health scare and I hope it is just a reminder for me to slow down, listen to my body and to stay at home and rest when I need to........

But on a more better note, I have extra good news. I consider myself an amateur here and for me to be invited to be a guest designer on a blog such as is a simply a dream come true. This is my first attempt at being presented somewhere so I consider myself honored to be chosen among many talented crafters.
