Almost there...30 days of creativity - day 29

Busy busy day today and so a simple birthday card in gorgeous neutrals  for day 29.

The message on the outside says
"Lots of people will be thinking of you on your birthday..."

and continues on the inside with

"And I wanted you to know that one of them is me.
Happy Birthday!"

The final day is 30 of the 30 days of creativity.

30days of creativity - day27

My goodness the month has flown 27 already and I have managed to keep up. I have impressed even myself!

Today's offering is this pair (brace?) of humorous cards featuring the cute owl from Stampin' Up!

In case its not too clear on the photo (the cards were already in polybags waiting to be despatched when I remembered to get pics) the sentiment reads If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished.

30 days of creativity ~ Day14

Perhaps this really belongs on day 19 (which is Father's Day this year) but this needs to go in the post and so day 14 is an owl in a tree - a Hoot and a Holler for Father's Day.

For this project:
Owl stamp and punches are from Stampin'Up!
Embossing folders and distress inks from the Tim Holtz range.

Don;t forgot to pop across to createstuff on Pinterest to check out what other people are creating this summer.

30 days - day 12

An old favourite - a joke from my childhood
Q:What is black and white and red (read) all over?
A: A newspaper   ha ha ha ...

Okay so I admit its maybe not so funny now,  but it was the basic inspiration point for today's bookmark and my pin at createstuff for 30 days of creativity day 12.

Creativity continues

The days are slipping by and already we are well into June and the 30 days of creativity project. I have been uploading each days project to the createstuff board over at Pinterest and my daily makes can be found here.
So far I have made a selection of cards, gift tags, treat bags and melted ribbon flowers
A little card...Just because...

Scalloped embossed easel card

Scallop edged Treat bag with butterfly

There are a lot of fabulous projects on the main createstuff board and it is well worth a look.
