21st birthday


This is a card I made for my great nephew's 21st birthday. Supplies are all from Kanban except the lettering and the numerals which were from Poundland. The backing card was bought many years ago ... a big bundle that stills keeps going - lol!. It's hard to see here, but I used three acetate wraps with sentiments, also adding the Happy Birthday.

For a dog lover


I was asked to make a card for a lady who has black dog, much the same as the one I used to digitally put on to the scene, matted on to an offcut of mirror card. The background was created with offcuts of sentiment card by Kanban, covering the joins with the green ribbon, adding the sentiment ovals.

Not enough candles


This is a card I made and sent earlier in the year for a cousin who is just six months younger than me ... I always tease about age, so I wrote inside that I was sorry there weren't enough candles - lol!

This was made with one of the Dots to Diamonds designs, colouring the candles with spectrum noir and adding the gems. The birthday greeting was stamped inked with Hero Arts ombre.

Inspired by the stripes etc from Paperbabe 99 picture inspiration::
