Anniversaries and Tui Bird Update

Hi Everyone!!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day!  My husband and I celebrated our 12th Anniversary on September 4th – it was also my niece’s 4th birthday party – so I have plenty of photos to share and updates!  My last post was on my niece’s Rainbow Dash birthday card.

Here is a quick photo of us before we went to her birthday party to document our anniversary :D.

I also made her funfetti cupcakes! I was kind of sad that some of her cupcake toppers were taken/thrown in the trash but 6 of 12 made it back to her.

I didn’t even make my husband an anniversary card this year! Shame on me but with everything else going on – I just haven’t made the time and he totally understands. I have made two anniversary cards for a neighbor to give to others so I will share those instead!  She came over and told me what she wanted and here they are:

This first card is the swallowtail made using a stamp set by Stampin’ Up! I believe it’s retired now :(. BUT don’t be sad – there are LOTS of butterfly sets available out there! I used Zig markers to color and added an embossed banner. I will list supplies for this card below.

The second card I made is using Stampin’ Up’s Rose Wonder set. I used Copics to color this card and added a few drops of glossy accent to mimic dew drops :).

Remember the Tui Bird painting I did for a photographer I used for Lyla’s infant photos? If you don’t…you can check out the post here. Look what she has done with it!

I don’t have rights to this photo – so it’s of poor quality – but I really wanted to share it here for you to see. i’m so proud of it!

Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll get back to sharing my 2nd month of Splitcoaststampers cards again soon!

XOXO,

Caly sig
