I have been a Stampin' Up Demonstrator for almost two years now, and when I signed up it was just for the starter kit and discount on products........ I never imagined it would snowball into being a business like it has. I am a new Mummy to my little boy, Isaac, who is almost four months old now. I am spending my maternity leave enjoying watch him grow up, becoming his own little person, and also trying to build my business up. Stampin' Up! have amazing products and I would love to share my crafting passion with as many people as possible. I am always putting through orders, so if you need anything, or just want some information or advise, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Happy Birthday Rachel!

It's my lovely Niece's birthday today.  I'm really hoping she'll love this card as it was a really tough one.
Obviously I had to make her a card from myself and my other half, but then I also got asked to make cards for Rachel by my mum and also my brother.

This card is what I created for my mum to give to her.  My mum asked if I could do something related to horses!!!!  Well, I'm not one to step away from a challenge.  I do however have to own up - I did not come up with this idea, it's something I got from a blog by a lady called Lynn Pratt.

In all fairness, the actual card didn't take long to make, it was just working out what punches to use for all of the elements.  The snout of the horse (it's probably called something completely different!) was meant to be the Wide Oval Punch, but I don't have that and the smaller oval really wasn't right, so I had to improvise.
I used tracing paper and drew round the Wide Oval Punch in the IB&C, then cut it out and used it to draw round onto the River Rock card.  It's not perfect like if it were punched out, but not half bad I didn't think!

Happy Birthday Rachel - enjoy your day :o)
