Happy Christmas deer


Last month I posted a card here for my design for CCAYR January challenge. The card I'm showing now was made at the same time - looks just like it, but actually a different card (can tell that by comparing the background paper), this time with a Happy  Christmas sentiment added.

The background is from a pack of Christmas cards purchased from The Works. Everything else, including the beautiful deer raised up with 3D foam were from an old Kanban kit.

Lots of candles for a 40th birthday


This card was made for Steve's 40th birthday in November, but wasn't blogged then. I've got several pictures of cards saved ... and just haven't had time to do anything with them, so thought I'd have a bit of a session of showing some.

Back to this card ... I used three different Kanban silver foiled sentiment cards for the background (this was an 8 x 8 card) using a silver strip between them.

I stamped on to some Birthday sentiment card (again from Kanban), using a much-loved Docrafts candles stamp (partly stamped twice to make it up to 40) and the Happy Birthday, both inked with memento Paris dusk. Candles were coloured with spectrum noir pens. Other bits and pieces were from Kanban kits.


This is for:

Heartful stamping (stamped blessings): anything goes + a stamp
The house that stamps built DCC27: a way with words
Lost coast 46: boys, boys, boys
One crazy stamper February: anything goes

Get ready Minion


This is a simple card I made some time ago for a male birthday, using papers and topper (with the word 'cousin' obliterated digitally before printing) taken from a Minions album purchased in Poundland (worth buying for the papers inside).


This is for:

Kraftin Kimmie 416: movie inspired (Minion movie)
Creative knockouts 232: birthday wishes
Noor February: celebrations
Seize the birthday (didn't use the optional topping)
Bizzy Becs February: anything goes

New life to older card


Having made and blogged a card here in November 2016, I added to it in March for Jorgie's birthday (no idea why I've left it so long to blog ... will soon be time to make one for her 6th birthday next month).

I added a crown sticker on to the original image, the fairy and teddy and, of course, the letters to make it personal for Jorgie.
