Easy Events with some Calypso Coral by Stampin Up and me

Hi dear Stampers.

Yip.. those are photo`s you see on my blog from something we created this morning! Guess what, I was able to borrow a point and shoot camera from a friend. I am still getting used to it.. the colors don`t always turn out the way I want them to be, but who`s complaining. I have a camera to use!.. Joepie!

This morning I had some bonding time with Rachel, who is now 5 years old, young. She has been asking me for the last couple of days, if we could make a card together for her friend who is having a birthday party today. When I took some craft coloured wrapping paper out, she wasn`t totally sure that I had understand what she had asked me. But when I gave her a stamp and told her she could cover it with the cupcake image she got tickled pink (smile) There was so much dedication while she was doing it and many times she told me that she loved making her present `pretty`. Soon after she was done she started colouring the cupcakes one by one. We decorated an envelope and created a card together. A very simple card.. but it sure was a hit in her eyes! She couldn't`t wait to give it to her friend.

With a huge smile on her face she went of to the party. You know, I love it when a present isn`t done after you go to the store to buy it.. It can be so much more than that, once you get creative.

We used the Easy Events Stampin Up stamp set that is in the new SU catalogue. All of the images are so darn cute. It`s a must have for those quick cards you sometimes need to make! Dont you love Stampin Up`s Pool Party and the Calypso Coral colors I combined together.. It makes this card so.. loveable (smile)

Well, I got sandwices to make in this household. It`s past our lunch time :)

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Inky hugs, Pauline
