4th July birthday

Someone that I work with let slip that it is her birthday on July 4th. I told her about the American custom of eating watermelon and spitting out the seeds, so I just had to make her this card. (She said that she would bring in watermelon on the day, but I said that I thought cream cakes would be better!!)
I cut the watermelons from Doodlecharms, and the greeting is from Zooballoo. I added some doodling just to finish it off. I'm really pleased with the way it looks.....although my husband admired it and said that he liked the three "dog faces"....he didn't have his glasses on!!

Thank You

I made this card for my friend Ruth who looked after our dog today. It is a lovely Penny Black stamp which I layered up for dimension. I am entering it into the Penny Black challenge here

On Father's Day...........

I made this card for the dog to send to my dad....yes really!! Inside it says "put your paws up"! The stamp is a lovely Helz Cuppeldich one...probably more suited for a "Get Well" card really! I colored it with promarkers, and then layered the image for dimension.

Plain and simple.....

I made this card for a colleague who has had a bereavement. It is a Hobby Art stamp which I stamped twice and decoupaged the flowers.

Micey Day....

Another of the lovely Penny Black stamps. I have really got hooked on decoupaging stamped images!

Tea cup mice....

I just love this stamp from the "Micey Day" set. I stamped it three times and then cut out the mice and layered them up for dimension. The border is a lovely Martha Stewart punch.

A colleague of mine is expecting her first baby any day now, and as I won't have much time for card making later in the week, I decided to be prepared for all eventualities! I cut the baby from Everyday Paper Dolls, and mounted it with foam pads on an oval cut from Plantin Schoolbook. Now we just have to await the arrival!!

Take it easy...

I made this card for a colleague who is retiring next week. The stamp is by Penny Black, and I used a Martha Stewart punch. I am entering it for the Penny Black challenge here the Incy Wincy challenge here and the Stamp with Fun challenge here
