Holly Hobbie Birthday and other Friday Night Cards

Such adorable stamps and I got them FREE!!!  This is a Holly Hobbie set that was exclusive to the UK edition of Cardmaking and Papercrafting Magazine that I got I think last year.  June decided to C.A.S.E. the example that was featured in the magazine for all of us to make at our Friday nite gathering.  She changed up the papers a bit though.  Here's what we made.........
Boy how did she know that I needed Birthday cards?  LOL.  Anyway I think this is just such a sweet card.

 One of the other ladies had us make another Birthday card That I swear took us all of nearly 2.5 hours just to color.  The paper was a shimmer paper that did not let you blend the colors very well so it took alot of patience.  In the end it too was a beautiful card.
The image was from an embossing folder and she embossed extra so that we could cut the flower and butterfly out and dimension it.  I have a few folders that I believe I could do this technique with so I'll have to try this again.

Another one of the ladies brought us valentines day cards to work on.  The first being for our husbands and since mine every once in awhile checks out my blog I cant post the picture but lets just say its a very luxurious looking card.  It's also larger than what we usually make measuring about 5 x 7.  She also brought a real cute kids card.
I LOVE these monkeys! The Monkey in the middle (Haha wasn't there a song kids use to sing about being the Monkey in the Middle?) anyway...........the Monkey is a Sticker that matches the paper!!!  How awesome (and simple) is that?  The gold rufflie stuff?  Well to be honest I wasn't paying attention and I'm not sure what that is.  It came on a tube about 6 or 7 inch's wide so I guess you buy it by the roll.  I believe she said they got it at the Scrapbook expo.  I'll check with her and let you know if anyone is really interested.

So that was our Friday night get together!  Lots of fun!  We also did a little demo on the envelope maker and a bow maker my husband made for each of us.  I'll do a post on those at a late date.

Now it's back to the craft room to make more birthday cards....after all IT"S SNOWING AGAIN!!!  Till later.....



  1. I love Holly Hobbie, she reminds me of my childhood. I didn't even realize that there was Holly Hobbie stuff around anymore! Those stamps look like they would be a lot of fun to color. Love the monkey card, those monkeys are so cute!

  2. I, too love Holly Hobbie and your card is so sweet! I also adore the monkey card - too cute and fun!

  3. Love the gold used on the third card and the softness of your second is gorgeous. The first takes me back to growing up and I think I may have had some of the Holly Hobbie as well.
