Get Well card

Hi Everyone!

Ir's a beautiful sunny morning and doesn't it make us all feel good?  Today I want to upload a photo of a card I've just finished for a good friend who has just had a hip operation to be closely followed by a knee operation (I certainly don't envy him!).  This card was made using a "Birds Cards" free digital image which I have coloured with Promarkers and partly decoupaged.  I thought the wording and image were so appropriate.  Thanks for looking.

Commissioned New Job card

Hi Everyone!

This is a welcomed break for me from all the pressures of dealing with the produce from my husband's allotment.  As a family we all appreciate the wonderful fresh fruit and vegetables that we get each year, but why oh why does it all have to come at once and in such quantities!  Oh well, I've escaped to my craft room and completed this card for my daughter's friend.  I used the Happy Day set of clear stamps and lots of odds and ends from my own paper stash.  Thanks for looking.

Another birthday card

Hi Everyone!

This is another card for my elder daughter's birthday coming up this month.  I thought the image would amuse her since she loves buying bras and also loves cats (even though she seems to be allergic to them!).  I bought the Penny Black stamp from the internet (I think it is actually discontinued now) and coloured it with Promarkers.  I used papers and gems from my stash for the rest.  Thanks for looking.

Great shoe image!

Hi Everyone

I made an almost identical card for my daughter's birthday since she loves shoes and is also a pianist, so I thought this one could go in our Community Centre card box.  I used Serif Craft Artist to enlarge the image and insert the sentiment.  Thanks for looking.

New Baby Girl card

Hi Everyone!

My friend and ex-colleague has just become a dad for the very first time and I can't wait to see his beautiful baby girl tomorrow and his beaming face!  Had to do a card celebrating the occasion and thanks to another friend, Carole, who let me borrow her dies and supplied me with some Cricut letters, this is the finished product.  I hope you like it.

Thank You card

Hi everyone!

I've been very fortunate to have spent a wonderful fortnight with my French friend and penfriend of nearly 50 years.  We began writing to each other back in 1964/5 and have kept in touch throughout all life's big events such as marriage, children, divorce and even death.  She - Monique - took the time to take my hubby and myself on a tour of the Pyrenees and the Basque country so we have lots of wonderful photos and memories.  During the visit we stayed at the most wonderful B&B and I wanted to send a handmade "Thank You" card to the owner who made us very welcome.  I hope she likes it.
