Birthday

Hi Everyone. Quick post for you tonight. I needed a birthday card and went looking for a little inspiration. I found this great challenge across at the Male Room Initially, I was looking through my stamp sets for something with a vintage feel - but then I came across an old set from My Favorite Things called Uncorked and it had the perfect sentiment for the challenge.

In the meantime, we did get back yesterday and that gave me some time to make a couple of cards this morning. I saw a great sketch across at Case This Sketch (but was too late to enter...

Hi Everyone. Happy Friday. This is my second challenge as the guest designer with the fabulous Just Us Girls team. I am so enjoying my time as the GD :-) The challenge this week is a theme challenge and it's a theme challenge: Pineapples are really on trend and I love pineapples. However.......... it's a word that runs shivers down my spine. Now, I can hear you asking... why on earth would the word PINEAPPLE send shivers down Jaydee's spine. Really, easy. For some inexplicable reason I am deathly allergic to pineapple. Yes, I have to carry a specific medicinal... Read more →
