Here comes the girls

Last week on Secret Crafter is was One for the Teen Boy and this week its for the girls and I thought what better card than one for my Sis who is 21 for 43rd time on Sunday. Now I pretty sure she won't see this till Sunday cos she is with all day Saturday and the boys are working late too. I've used a Sarah Kay stamp, they look like Sisters and the sentiment is an unmounted one but I feel it could be Ezybels. The papers are My Minds Eye, it a huge stack with loads of papers and I think it came from The Range. The flowers are all from my stash although the roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
My Sis makes cards to order for my Mum, I can't stand the stress making cards for orders, quite happy making cards and then if someone wishes to buy it that's fine, so a few times a year I get a call asking for a card for my Sis from my Mum, so that's Christmas, Anniversary and Birthday. My mum loves than personalised with the recipent name, I always feel doing this is fine if you're 6 but when you're grown up I would've thought you would at least know you name by now.
Anyway thank goodness for the Cricut and my favourite font Storybook and I've the gorgeous papers from My Minds Eye which are gone. I've used another Sarah Kay and the flowers are all punches.

Both cards are very pretty Debby. I like the one at the top the most (without the name). I only put names on cards for children or new borns. The papers you used are very beautiful.

Both gorgeous. Shs is gonna love these 2 cards. Scrummy colours as ever. I also get asked sometimes to put names on cards, which I also think is fine for youngsters. Different when you are doing a personalised message for a wedding. Still the cutomer is always right. Marianne x

Caryn said...

Beautiful Debbie - that is your name isn't it ;)lol. I know what you mean about cards to order though - nothing sends my blood pressure up more than a card request!! The worst one was a cricket themed card (yawn) for a blind Indian man who was turning 90!!!! That one still gives me nightmares!
