For Louise.

It was hard to get back into birthday mode after all this tinsel and glitter.

I found this image on the internet its perfect for the card i had to make. Its was in black and white so once I decided on my background papers I added colour with Polychromos pencils. Stamped the greeting and finished with some embellishments.

Josephine's coat of many colours!

What a fun template from Cardmaking Paradise suitable for many occassions, why not pop over and have a look in the gallery to see some fabulous examples.

This is what I did. I keep collecting bits and bobs and things to use on my cards or to alter and thought it would be quite nice to try adding some colour and texture to this fun card. So here is Josephine with her bright coloured feathers made from Melon seeds! They were already washed and dried some time ago so all I had to do was colour them. I used a variety of glimmer mist sprays for that and silicon glue to attach them when they were dry. The paper is a sheet from Crafty Individuals Seaside book!

For a special little girl.

Have no idea where the time went but thats my little princess turned 2 years old already!

The images are from the gift wrap I used to wrap her pressies, the number is computer generated and the sentiment is stamped.
