INKspired Blog Hop 46

Hello and welcome to our INKspired blog hop. We really love that you have come to see what we have created for you this week.

If you have hopped here from  Nicole's blog, you're in the right spot! Just remember to keep on hopping until you have seen all the projects we have made to show you. You won't want to miss any of them.

Here is the sketch that Teneale has given us to work with  ... 

I have created two cards for this sketch, yes, TWO! This week has been kinda crazy, with Christmas shopping and Christmas party planning, however, the birthdays keep coming and people keep doing things that deserve recognition, so I needed a birthday card and a congratulations card ... on top of making lots of Christmas cards for family and friends.

This card is for my beautiful boy Matthew who turns 13 this week. I'll soon have two teenage boys in the house - heaven help me! The food bill keeps increasing, as must my patience. No, really, Mattie is such a happy kid most of the time, he's a really sweetie and is so creative. The only thing is his creating tend to be sooooooo messy!!!! 

Mattie, you're such a blessing in our lives and I hope this bright and fun card will make you smile even brighter. Happy Birthday Matthew xx 

This birthday card uses the Balloon bouquet punch, the Balloon framelits and the Celebrate Today stamp set. I have also used the Festive Birthday DSP and Brights Enamel Shapes to jazz it up.

My second card uses the stunning Moroccan DSP paired with a sentiment from the Guy Greeting stamp set. I love the way the way the papers from this Moroccan DSP are suited for use in masculine cards, or for those who love something a little exotic.

I hope you like my cards and if you have a spare minute, you'll let me know which is your favourite. I always love to read your comments.

My lovely and talented friend Lisa is next stop in the hop. Let's go and check out her awesome card.

Thanks so much for hopping by. See you next time :)
