Ballet Babes

My cousin has her 39th Birthday in the next few days, and with this little image I could not have found a better design for her.
She loves ballet and she loves pink!

Simons Birthday

Simon's birthday was causing me a problem...... I'm not good with men's cards!
When I spotted this cyclist on a die cut sheet I wash chuffed to bits. He loves his bike, and it's because of him that Paul upgraded his bike 18 months ago.
I used a black card blank, and green textured card matt to give the effect of the countryside the imaged chap is cycling over.
Very simple, but as I said, I'm not good with mens cards!
Happy Birthday Simon.

For Vikki

Having made a card for Sally-Ann to send, I then needed one for us.....
This one I created using the Fleur Francais CD-ROM, again from Kraftyhands.
Even the inserts are included on the disc, so you really can give those finishing touches to your cards with them.
Happy Birthday Vikki.


It's Vikki's 30th birthday today, and Sally-Ann asked if I could make a card for her to send to her.
I used the Kraftyhands Garden Steps Collection CD-ROM for this one.
I've never made a stepper card before, but this was very easy, and a template is provided on the disc for you to follow. Also each element is printed separately with a 'map' to show where it fits on the card blank once it is cut and folded.
I decoupaged the butterflies and shaped them to give the feeling of flight between the flowers on each layer.
I think that both Sally-Ann and Vikki were pleased with the result.

Two Today - My Godson

I cannot believe that my gorgeous Godson is already two years old!
The card I made for him was from the Toy Box Collection on the CD-ROM by Kraftyhands.
I discovered this company at the Craft show when I went with Tracey and Alison earlier in the year. All of us instantly loved the displays of cards they had produced from their discs and so, between us, Tracey and I bought 4 different collections, and she was kind enough to lend me this disc to use for Dylan's card.
I hope that my lovely Godson has a great Birthday. xx

Mikes Birthday

Another year Mike! Happy Birthday!
I put together this Thomas Kincaide card for him, from my CD-ROM. It is a slight variation on what it should have been, as I thought it would work better.
The only thing I am not happy about is the white from the cut edge of the decoupage, but I've told Mike that I want to edge it in gold for him, and he can have it back!
I chose this image, as I wanted to get something that resembled lighthouse hill, where they live.
Only the best for my friends LOL x
