Another 85th birthday card


This is similar to the previous card, this time with the request just for the new hat on the bible, the flag with some writing printed and a red car. The background is embossed matt silver card with some sentiment card from Kanban.

85th birthday card


This is another card commissioned by a retired Salvation Army Officer similar to a couple I've shown before. I was asked to make a card for a SA colleague for her 85th birthday.  I used the picture of an open bible as before, this time digitally adding the new hat worn by ladies, adding the old style bonnet with the picture of the flag. I was asked to add a black car as the recipient used to drive one. The background is from the lovely Downton Abbey pack from Crafter's Companion bought some time ago, with the little domed brass frame from The Works.

Happy birthday Hyacinth


This is a commissioned card for a friend to send to her mother ... her name, of course, is Hyacinth, so, obviously I was asked to incorporate that flower into the card.  I used a free download digital image, printed, coloured with spectrum noir pens and cut with a todo decorative oval die, using a smaller one to cut the sentiment which I had printed from computer, edging both with a spectrum pen. The background paper is an unknown piece on to which I added the ribbon with blingy sequins from Poundland and the lovely lilac lace from The Range, with some 3D butterflies with acetate wings and rhinestones here and there. I gave the card to my friend this morning and she was thrilled with it and knows that her mother will love it.

Keep fit and drink wine


A commissioned card with the request to include keep fit and wine. Some unknown paper as background, Kanban topper with a die cut bottle of wine and frame. I found the silhouettes free online and added the Relax! sentiment, placing the printed out card within the frame (took a couple of goes to get this right). Crocheted flowers, buttons and sentiments from stash.

Viola for Lucy


This is a commissioned card made for a friend's granddaughter who plays the viola. The viola was from a freebie image, printed and cut round. Flowers from Hobbycraft, butterfly and dragonfly from The Works, ribbon from stash. Background is a piece of My Paper Stash card and two offcuts of Hunkydory at the bottom of the inside. The large sentiment piece is from Kanban.

This is for The library challenge 10: the rose garden:


I think my card incorporates some of the colour and feel of a garden. Having read the summary of the book, I'm prompted to get it and read.
