WOW!! We are nearly 1/2 way through 2012:)

Hello...and welcome back to Sandybeaches:) The craft desk has been covered in school work over the past few weeks! So here are some touches of creativity that I have been able to play with over the weekend:) This 13th Birthday card was for a special teenagers birthday on Saturday...with the inspiration from this weeks sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday (#159)...I set out to create a colour scheme based on the footy team that  birthday boy plays for....Stampin' Up! stamp set, bling & papers and Cuttlebug embossing came oh so together nicely!

The second card that I have to share is one for a belated birthday card that I have sent off with pressie today:) With inspiration from Just Add Ink (#123)..cute stamp borrowed from a crafty friend, Stampin' Up! bling and card/papers from the stash...and wah lah! Cute! Cute! Cute!

The third card is on its way in the same parcel as the second card! This is an extremely early birthday card!! I decided that while I was on a roll...that I'd keep on creating:) I popped over to Unscripted Sketches (#164)to see this weeks sketch and had a play!! Again...the stamp borrowed from a super crafting friend, Stampin' Up! sentiment. punches & papers, and a little extra paper from the stash...and a nice feeling of an early birthday card and pressie on its way!!

The last card was a request that I received from a friend yesterday to make a baby card with no gender specified:) So off I went to Mojo Monday (#247) to see the latest in sketches this week! Here I've used Stampin' Up! ribbon, stamp set, embossing folder, punches & brads; with matching paper from the stash....and a Happy New Baby card to go:)
So there you have it...the latest creations @ Sandybeaches...until next time...have a wonderful day x
