Lauren's birthday card

Now that Lauren has finally received her birthday card I can show it here. The reason it took so long was that her and I have hundreds of things in of which is the failure to post cards in a timely manner so that the recipient gets it before their birthday :)
Please excuse the bad picture...or more accurately the bad lighting and my inability to fix it! There's a lot going on in this card...Pretty in Pink, Pink Passion and Pixie Pink CS, some retired SU paper which I never knew the name of, the retired French Script background stamp, So Swirly wheel...mmm what else? Ribbon, buttons and flowers from the PINK smiggle stuff I won, Kaiser birdie rub ons and pink rhinestone brads. It's all very 'Laurenish' and blatantly taken from her paper adventure page on favourite things....she liked it anyway!

I have actually been very busy making things...but they're for a swap and I don't want the girls to see them before I send them out so that will have to wait. I also made a 21st birthday card for my housemate who was off to a party tonight...but forgot to take a pic of it so.....
Anyway....back to the swap making for me....the idea that I originally had for one of the cards is just not working and it's incredibly I'm just going to scrap it and try something completely different. I also have plans to make a little mini book for my Mama with pics of the grand kids...and I have decided to start paper adventure, even though it is half way through...I might catch up with the older challenges or I might not, but it is meant to be fun so I'm not putting any pressure on myself.
Have a great day
