My Grandmas Birthday card

I used HOTP papers from a TSV from QVC last year. The happy birthday and corner stamps came in the same set too. I used liquid pearls in the centre of each flower, and along the bottom. Not sure if I need the word "Grandma" on it, but I don't know how to get the word in the same style to fit the card, or where it would look best.

I used these images ober the weekend as I thought they would look lovely on a very simple card for an anniversary, engagement or love card. On the anniversary card, I decoupaged the heart inbetween the birds, and added glossy accents. I hand-wrote each of the sentiments and added a little liquid pearls. xx

First Birthday

My friends little girl has had her first birthday today - and we went round for a little party on the weekend. This is the card I made for her. She is a real "little girl" and i wanted it to have pink on and a teddy. They loved this card. I used glossy sccents on the flowers in the corners, and the heart and the bees. (you can't really tell in the piccie though) xx

Remember this.... the name of the decoupage sheets I have used to make this card. I haven't really done much decoupage before, but I really like this range of sheets - especially for men and for older ppl that can remember those times! (no offence to anyone who can remember!!) :)

I made this for hubbys dad who is 70 in a couple of weeks (he was also a miner in his younger days). I always find mens card difficult to make, esp dads. :) If you like decoupage or like something a bit different, I would thoroughly recommend these sheets... straightforward to do and effective, I think!?! Thanks for looking. xx

Not made a card for ages, so....

thought I would make a nice one for my m.i.l birthday this weekend. Wow.... it was difficult! I spent wed night, thurs night , a little of fri night and sat morning making this card. I just had no inspiration and din't know what to do! I ended up using lilac Pink Petticoat paper and also their buttermilk spotty paper, a penny black sticker (never used any of these images before, but I love the hedgehogs!) a flower I bought for 4p (ok, i bought quite a few of them at that price!!) while on hols in cornwall this summer, and the letters and numbers are cut from the cuttlebug hippiechick alphabet which I cut on my big shot. Hope she likes it when she opens the card!
