Happy Birthday Christine!

It is my friend Christine's birthday next week. I made this simple card with the pot of geraniums cut from Freshly Picked, and tied on a tag with some of my favourite spotty ribbon!

To Dad....from the dog!!!

Our dog always sends cards to my mum and dad (she really is very clever!). This is the one for my dad. The "dog" and "Woof" are all cut from the Robotz cartridge.

Happy Birthday Lynne!!

I used some lovely stamps that came free with a magazine, and coloured them with promarkers. Then it just seemed to be crying out for some bunting!!

Come rain or shine...

I just love this stamp. It is one of the new slapstick ones from Penny Black, and just stamps perfectly! I used promarkers to colour it.

Birthday Bear

A friend of mine asked me to make a first birthday card with a bear on it. The Christmas cartridge has just the bear!! The font is from the Nursery Rhymes cartridge, and the balloon (so useful!) is from Pooh and Friends. I raised the bear and ballooon on foam pads, and added a little white gel pen for dimension.

A nautical theme

Kai's great-grandmother asked me to make a card with a nautical theme for his first birthday, and this is what I came up with. The boat is from New Arrival, the fish from Life's A Beach, the waves from Zooballoo, the font from Plantin Schoolbook, and the sun from Pooh and Friends...phew!!!

Birthday hedgehog

This is for my brother-in-law, made with one of the lovely "Penny Black" stamps, and coloured with promarkers.
