Happy halloween birthday, son


This is the final commissioned halloween birthday card that I made last year and never blogged at the time ... and then the opportunity went till recently.

This one was made with various bits and pieces from Poundland and also Paperhouse 3D stickers ... and one of those little glass bottles again.

And now I need to put my thinking cap on to make commissioned halloween birthday cards for the same recipients for this year. For someone who just doesn't 'do' halloween, I find this hard.

Happy birthday sister


Another halloween card made last year for a commission - once again a large 8 x 8 card. The lady with umbrella is a die cut I had in my stash. The large white head/skull was from Poundland. Other bits and pieces from stash and 3D stickers from Paperhouse.

Even though I don't like halloween and only make for commissions, I love the little glass bottles on the shelf.

Another halloween birthday


This was another commissioned 8 x 8 card that I actually made for last year, but didn't blog ... the occasion came and went and I was too late. I was asked to make birthday cards for two twins (grown up) for 31 October. This is the second one I made:

I built up the background scene digitally, adding the sentiment and printing, with other pieces added from stash and Paperhouse production 3D stickers.

I don't celebrate halloween and only make cards when requested. I need to make them again this year for these twins, so I'm having to think of other designs.
