Morning all :)
I hope you all enjoyed yesterday's sunshine - it was my 24th birthday and I had a wonderful day, topped off with a fabulous family barbecue outside in the sunshine - perfect :)
Here's the birthday cake I made (Yes, I made my own birthday cake :P) - the pretty candles are courtesy of my 7 year old niece Hana :P
And here's what it looks like inside :)
I got lots of lovely things for my birthday - here's the craft stuff I got!
I can't wait to get back into my craft room and play with all this stuff now :D I got my first Magnolia stamps, my first House Mouse stamps and my first Wild Rose Studio stamps - I'm branching out here :P I also got more Penny Black stamps - I only had one up til now. My stupendous boyfriend gave me money to buy what I wanted, so I'll be getting some more crafty bits through the postbox in the next few days as well!
Anyway, enough about my birthday, I'm getting old now, I should be hiding the fact that I have birthdays lol :P
This week over at
the theme is
My Favourite Stamp
and this week we're sponsored by
Now, obviously this is insanely hard, because ALL my stamps are my favourite for their purpose, otherwise I wouldn't have bought them :P So to avoid choosing which one I like best, I decided to buy a new one instead lol :P I've had my eye on it for a while, so I chose this one: Rose and Felix by Sylvia Zet. Love it!
And here's the card I made with it :)
The image as previously mentioned is by Sylvia Zet for Wee Stamps by Whimsy Stamps, the ribbon and charm are from Ribbon Girl, the flowers, gems and corner are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the sentiment is Lili of the Valley and the rest is from my stash.
A closeup of the image, coloured with Promarkers. I put gems in her hair and Stickles on the flowers. There's some Glossy Accents too on the kitty's nose.
A closeup of the ribbon and charm, I forgot to arrange the charm nicely for the first photo :P

I love these butterflies, I think they were one of the first crafty things I ever bought!
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
