Happy Birthday Eden

A colleague of mine asked me to make a card for her nephew who loves dinosaurs. I cut this one from "Paper Doll Dress Up" and layered it in different colours to give some dimension. A balloon always seems to be a good way to add the age for a young child. I cut this one from "Pooh and Friends".

Baby Boy

A colleague asked me to make a baby boy card, and I wanted to use my new Woodware pram stamp.  I was inspired by this;

Best Wishes.

This is a "thinking of you" card, for a colleague who is off sick. I used one of the lovely Michael Powell stamps, and layered the boat and beach huts to give it some dimension.

Sympathy card

Having rushed to make four 21st birthday cards, I had to turn my thoughts to the more sobering subject of a sympathy card. I used a lovely Hobby Art stamp for this one.

21st cards from Grandma!

So....I had to make 21st cards for my colleague to give to her twin daughters, and another two for her mother to give the girls. These are the ones I made for granny! Apparently on girl loves ice-cream (cut from Indie Art), whilst the other loves cup cakes (Doodlecharms) and bunting. I am so sad that I actually much prefer these to the previous two, and I am worried that my colleague will feel the same way!

Twin 21st's

 A colleague asked me to make cards for her twin daughters who are soon to be 21. It seems that although they are both very creative, one likes vintage floral and Old English Sheepdogs, while the other loves short dresses and bright colours! These are what I have come up with. I am much happier with the vintage floral one, and feel as if the purple one needs something else......but I can't quite think what! She has asked me to make cards for their grandmother to send them as well, so watch this space!!

A dog is....

This card is for my husband's nephew who has a birthday in a few weeks. The family are the proud owners of a husky / Alaskan Malamute called Loki (which is apparently Norse for something like mischief!)' so this stamp and sentiment seemed to fit the bill!
