Ella's Birthday card

I had to add this card to my blog, I made it for my 5 year olds birthday I love the dazzling diamonds with heat and stick powder but am always disapointed with photo's of it as you can't see how pretty it is, it really sparkles.
I used Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White card, Pretty inPink and Versamark Ink, Scallop edge and 1 1/4" circle punches, whisper white Taffeta ribbon and Garden Whimsey stamp set and Happy Birthday Greeting from Occasional Greetings.

A rose is a rose

Thought I'd Share these cards and their box I made with you, I made them from my one sheet wonder (you use one A4 sheet of printed or in this case stamped paper and make 10 different co-ordinating cards) yesterday for my hostess I managed to make them with my poorly 17 month old over my shoulder most of the time.
I copied the colours from Abi she made me a lovely desk calender for Christmas using these colours and stamp set, click on the link to see them.
I used Rose red, Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke, Old olive and Very Vanilla card, Rose red, bravo burgundy, Always artichoke and old olive ink, I also used some holiday treasure's dsp for the bag and the card in the bottom picture this photo was taken before I stuck the rose's down as it was for my demo at the Stampin party last night.

No Cards today just my Girls

Yesterday was a busy day for us, We had to get to rehersals for my daughters dance show for 9am in the morning finished rehersals at 12.30pm and had to be back by 2pm for the show, This is my oldest Maria in her ballet tutu, it was a Pirate theme. Her Dad tell's me she did well I only saw a little of it :( as I was chaparone for the boys group.

This was her tap costume which I missed completly :,(

And Maria's Jazz dance was a High school musical dance which she hated lol, I saw a little of this one from the wings but had to get the noisy boys back to their dressing rooms.

Here's Ella in her ballet tutu I missed both her dance's completly but at least I got to see her dance at the rehersals.

And finally this is her in her tap costume, now I'm desperate to see the DVD, what I saw of the show was amazing there was girls from as young as 2 years old and even a adult tap group of mothers dancing with their sons and daughters.
And a huge big Thanks to my very patient husband who looked after the rest of our children while I was at the rehersals andacted as chauffer for the day, also to my parents who looked after my other children including my 16 month old daughter, for the 4 hour show, we were all exhausted by time the end of the show with Ella even falling asleep at the dinner table lol.
Must now finish the thank you cards for the dance teachers and family who helped us.
