Happy Birthday Dad

Hi Everyone

It's my dad's 60th birthday today and my parents are enjoying themselves on holiday in Bali.  I'm soooo envious.

Anyway in wishing him many happy returns,  I made this card for him...he loves old cars and I think he even owned one of these cars as shown in this picture.

The car and sentiment stamp used are from Kanban with a circles and textures added using nestibilities and the cuttlebug.  To add dimension and movement, I mounted the car onto a spring system, so when it moves it shakes - boing!!

Hope you like

Until next time

Going Abroad Card

Hey Everyone

This card was made for a friend whose parents were going abroad to live for 8 months, in Singapore can you believe.  How lucky are they!

The paper used was from Cosmo Cricket's range called Joyride and the sentiment from Hero Arts.  I've tried to keep the colours the same and added a bit of faux stitching and twine for added interest and to create the parcel effect.

The colours come up a bit truer in the image below...

Hope you like.  Until next time.

Anniversary Card

Hi Everyone

It's been mad busy recently with lots of personal changes which is why i've not posted anything recently.

I have been making loads of cards and now I have more free time on my hands, you'll start seeing more of my creations.

Anyway here's an anniversary card I made for a friend using this gorgeous glittered My Minds Eye Lost & Found paper, sentiment sticker and diamante for that added bling!

And close up...

hope you like
