The boy and I are cleaning the house. He just finished the guinea pig cage and demanded a break with ice cream. Who am I to reject??? Thought I’d take the opportunity to blog my cards for today. We’re off for some shopping and movie when we’re done and when we get home hubby will be here. And I guess he would like some family time the hours he is home before leaving for tomorrows conference in Umeå.

First up is a paper pieced Happy Birthday card. I combined my best buys from the crop last weekend: The Stella and Rose paper pad, the doily stamps from MME and the banner from Vilda Stamps.

I did this for the Paper Piecing Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. And the design is based on this months sketch over at Svensk Scrapbooking.

Second card is for this week’s Card Pattern’s sketch 106.

But withered leaves

Papers are Bello Pastello from Riddersholm Design. Gorgeous greens and pinks. Love that line! The stamps used are from Prickle Pear. The wings are from the Winged Heart stamp, but I covered the heart part with a tag done with the Rosebud circle stamped with the sentiment  But withered leaves.

I covered the wings with thin coat of glitter and also added some to the sentiment. It shines. The Rosebud circle is stamped with Tombow pens.

The break is over, the boy’s ice cream is gone and the floors await. Have a fab Sunday!
