Birthday Bonnet…




Morning all, how are you today?

I’ve not been too well, came down some horrible virus and have been in bed for the last 2 days. I’m feeling a bit better this morning, still a bit woozy but definitely in need of some fresh air!


It’s an Anything Goes theme this week at Papertake Weekly, there is as usual an optional extra and it’s to make a Christmas Card

Remember this is only an option and if you don’t want to use this theme then you don’t have to


I’m still enjoying making cards with the new Lili of the Valley girlie stamps so I didn’t take the Christmas option. The 5 girls have been really popular and some of them have sold out at the moment but this one is still available, it’s called Birthday Bonnet


I recycled a card from last year for this that I wasn’t completely happy with, I can’t bear to throw them away if I’ve used lovely papers so I took off everything I could and re-used the base




PTW 32 - Anything Goes


Here’s everything I used;

Maja Design papers

Birthday Bonnet

Handwritten Phrases

Spellbinders ovals and large scalloped ovals

The rest of the gorgeous goodies are all from the Ribbon Girl, these crystal hearts are scrumptious

Emily lace

Crystal hearts

Hemp twine


Kort and Godt rolled paper roses

Heart pins

White beaded sprigs




Hope you like it, I appreciate your comments very much and always enjoy reading them

Have a great weekend all
