I've just uploaded the few photos I managed to take on Saturday so I've edited this post to include a few.
This is Alexa making good use of the little table and stools her 'Dadad' and I bought her for her birthday together with an IOU for a days outing when the weather improves.
Here she is watching her favourite bit from the films taken in Orlando last November. The Shamu show! You can see where much of the pen ended up. It's a good job they are special washable pens.
And finally here she is moving in to give her cousin, our lovely Isabella, a big smacker of a kiss!
Saturday saw the 2nd birthday of our gorgeous little Alexa who is currently going through a very cheeky stage. She's absolutely adorable and knows exactly how to twist everyone (including complete strangers in restaurants as we discovered on Sunday) round her little finger.
This is the card I made for her.
The first photo was taken in electric light so the colours are not exactly true but it shows the shine of the 3D gloss on the letters and the gently glittered design on the purple paper. The alphabet capitals and the 'appy irthday' stamps are from Dimension Fourth. I overstamped the letters with some stamps from the Funky Florals themeplate from Elusive Images, coloured them with Copics, cut them out and shaped them before adding them to the card with silicone glue. It's the first time I've used those letters and I'm really pleased with how they came out.
The fairy image was one of a set of three I got from QVC when I first started stamping and I coloured her with pencils and Sansodor and then added a touch of Sakura Stardust clear which, of course doesn't show on here.
I recently bought two new Martha Stuart border punches and got the chance to use them both on here and I used all the teeny butterflies from the border to decorate the rest of the card.
Unfortunately, I've had the pretty papers a long time and as per usual, I chopped the manufacturers name strip off the bottom to get them in my storage box more easily so I haven't a clue whose they are.
It was my son Jamie's (Alexa's daddy) birthday yesterday so we had two celebration days and I will post his card later in the week.
I hope all you lovely visitors had a great weekend too and that the weather was as nice for you yesterday as it was here. It was so mild I went out for lunch without even a jacket. Big change today though with a cold wind and lots of showers.
As always, thankyou for any comments you have time to leave. I really appreciate them and like to visit you back when I can.
