Birthday poem

Age and Laughter

Happy birthday, you’re not getting old,
Stay in the game, it’s not time to fold.
Wrinkles and grey hair, are just a new look,
Countless experiences, you should write in a book.

A birthday is seldom, a serious occasion,
Try not to take it, like the d-day invasion.
Laughter and jokes are within sight,
Stock up on both, all through the night.

by Martin Dejnicki

Mjummy happy birthday circle card

This is a circle card i folded. I decorated with paper and distressed it all with brown ink.
Then cut out some small circles and stamped some yummy stuff like cakes and cookies on it. That is a must for a birthday don't you think?! ;-) These stamps i colored with copics, and the circles are also distressed with brown ink. Used two text stamps: "for you" and "Happy birthday" on the circles and little labels. This circle card can be open and closed with the ribbon. When it is closed it is completely flat, so you can send it through snail mail very easily!

Deze cirkel kaart heb ik gevouwen en versierd met papier wat ik gedistresst heb met bruine inkt. Op de uitgesneden gedistresste witte cirkels heb ik lekkere dingen gestempeld zoals taartjes en koekjes. Dat hoort bij een verjaardag toch?! ;-) Deze stempels heb ik ingekleurd met ocpics. Ik heb twee tekststempels gebruikt "happy birthday" en "for you". De cirkel kaart kan open en dicht met het lint. Als het dicht is, is het helemaal plat zodat het makkelijk met de post verstuurd kan worden.

For these challenges:

Round card with some bling bling!

For this card i used some bling gems and brads. Also shiny paper and the pockets of this cute little scarecrow from CJ i painted with mica powder so it gets a shiny effect. The rest of this image i have colored with copics.

Voor deze vogelverschrikker heb ik wat bling bling steentjes en brads gebruikt. Ook wat glimmend papier en de zakken zijn ingekleurd met wat mica poeder wat een glanzend effect geeft. De rest van de vogelverschrikker heb ik ingekleurd met copics.

Quote: Halloween

"On Halloween the thing you must do
Is pretend that nothing can frighten you
And if somethin' scares you and you want to run
Just let on like it's Halloween fun."

Inspiration picture:


The inspiration picture gave me the idea to make a transparent card because it has a glassy appereance. I made a transparent card for the first time. It is fun to do! Something different. The swirls are stamped with stazon ink. The fairy stamp is colored with copics. Used some flowers with eyelets and ribbon.

De inspiratie foto bracht me op het idee om een transparante kaart te maken vanwege de glazige uitstraling. Ik heb voor het eerst een transparante kaart gemaakt. Leuk om te doen. Weer eens wat anders! De swirls zijn gestempeld met stazon. De fairy stempel is ingekleurd met copics. Ik heb wat bloemen gebruikt met eyelets en lint.

Turn a life around!

“Too often we under estimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest
compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

Toadily happy!

This looks like 2 seperate tags, but it is infact just a card, that is shaped above as two tags.
The little frogs are from PB and colored with copics.

Dit ziet er uit als 2 tags, maar het is in feite zo dat alleen de bovenkant zo gevormd is als 2 tags.
The kleine kikkertjes van PB zijn ingekleurd met copics.
