Perpetual Birthday Calendar kits and cards

Have you seen the Perpetual Calendar kit on p.153 of the Stampin' Up annual catalogue? It's great fun to make and so useful for reminding you about your loved ones' birthdays each month and because it's perpetual, you can use it for years to come! I have the stamp set (p.12) that coordinates with the kit and I've found that it also comes in very handy for your scrapbooking/Project Life pages and of course for making cards - like this one:

Watercolour splodge backgrounds are all the rage and so easy with the stamp included in this set! I stamped it repeatedly in Pool Party ink, stamping off once after each re-inking. Check out the fab texture in this close up:

Isn't it great?! The sentiment comes from a lovely new stamp set called Cottage Greetings. Stampin' Up has come up with so many fresh new fonts in this catalogue and this is another of my favourites :)

I used the firework bursts (or that's what I think of them as anyway!) and a sprinkling of the new sequins from the Brights assortment. A frame scored with the Simply Scored tool adds a little extra detail.

This evening I was talking to my son and he questioned my use of the word 'we'. I smiled and explained that I was using the royal 'we'. Quick as a flash he said: "So what comes after the royal wee? The royal flush!" He doubled up with laughter and sauntered off. Thank goodness my daughter comes back home tonight and we can get a bit more sophisticated with our comedy!

See you tomorrow,
