You Rock!

Can hardly believe my grandson is turning 9 years old this week. This is the card I made for him using a photo I got of him at Christmas as the main image on some background paper matting and layering and computer generated greetings.

Last post of the year!

I was so busy making cards for Christmas I never got round to posting these birthday cards when I made them in November/December.

For the first one I printed off one of Louise's holiday photos, matted and layered on a spellbinder scallop mat also Martha Stewart garden trellis border punch. Background paper from Crafty Individuals, stamped sentiment and flower.

The second one, stamped images coloured with promarkers matted and layered. Beer glasses are cut out and attached with foam dots.

Disney Princess

Growing fast!

Hard to believe that Caitlin has just turned 6 years old and is growing up fast both in height and character but she still loves Disney Princesses, so that was my theme for her card this year. Printed background and image. Decoupaged image and added pearls to her dress and a charm crown. Edged the side with punched out border and added more pearls. Stamped greeting.

The big 30!

Made this for my son. I'm beginning to feel my age now my youngest has hit 30!

Template is my own cut out of white card, covered with background paper leaving a white border. Decoupage car, peeloffs in corner and greeting to finish.
