Welcome to Karen who is a new follower this week. I'm taking a breather after my daughter's 30th birthday party which was great fun, and I'm hoping to do a little crafting this week. I'm gutted that I forgot to take my camera to the party so I'm hoping some of the guests will be able to provide a little photographic evidence that a good time was had by all! I tried to take a photo on my phone of my first attempt at making cake pops for a table centrepiece, but it hasn't come out very well. I got the idea for the fun sign from something I saw in Pinerest. I'm still getting to grips with my Silhouette Cameo and was quite pleased that I was able to weld letters together so easily to make the sign, and a little faux stitching brought it to life. I know the cake pops aren't very uniform but it was my first try and I can't wait to have another go!
Sadly I have no picture of my gorgeous birthday girl blowing out the candles on her cake but here is the card I made her :-
I cut the numbers on the Cameo and used the circles backround stamp from Round and Round to make the background. The sentiments were from Think Big Favourites 7 and Big Birthday Wishes. I'm really loving the Papertrey Ink twill ribbon- it has a soft sheen that reflects the light so beautifully.
That's all for now because I want to catch up on some blogs, but thanks for looking.
