Birthday cards

How nice it is to catch up with all the news on everyones blog and the emails that just needed replying to...well that is what i did yesterday morning. I even manged to get some crafting done with Sophia and Christiana late in the afternoon. It was another full day which started far to early. The sun was out, everyone came for lunch (except Andis who had to return the army), we broke eggs, ate, laughed and then to finish the day, we watched a film I have been trying to see for a long time - "the time travellers' wife"

Here are the pictures of the birthday cards I made for Sophia and Katerina. I first saw this amazing card made by Kelly and I knew it would be perfect for the twins. Excuse the actual photos but I had to put the cards on the sunbed to try and get some light on them to take the photos.

I used a mixture of Stampin' Up! stamps and others from my stash.... it is hard to see that the cardstock is pretty in pink and lovely lilac but it is, honestly. To see a proper picture of how the card looks, you need to have a nip over to Kellys blog...i hope that the link works. She managed to get a perfect photo of the whole card.

Have a great day and thanks for having a read,
