An emergency shaker card

This is a card I made quite a while ago as a commission for a friend who wanted to give a card to someone who just loves diet coke. This is a shaker card. Because I had to scan the card, shadows have been cast by the higher parts of the shaker.

'Coca cola' is the theme this week on Crazy Amigo, so I'm linking for that.

It's also for Spoon full of sugar 118: 'the choice is yours - shaker card'.

Quick and easy cute Christmas card

This is another card for ABC Christmas 'quick and easy' challenge sketch, this time using a cute image from the QVC kit and BG eskimo kisses papers and adding some gems at the corners.

The true meaning of Christmas

For this card I've used the Tamara's sketch on Dutch dare 84:

The background papers aren't specifically 'Christmas' ones, but it seemed to go with the image from the recent QVC kit. The papers are from the PM Persimmon collection.

The scripture quotation is computer generated (you can read it better if you click on the picture to enlarge) and the stars were punched out. This is an A5 card because the image is large.
