New Years Resolution...

My new years resolution was to make sure I had my cards made in advance of each occassion - and not be be stressing and making them the night before! are some I made on the last day of my christmas holidays...

This is my sisters card... she is my twin. It is our birthday in March so I have made this well in time! Made the words on "wordle" and glittered the end of each swirl. Butterflies cut on my bigshot - from sparkly card (though you can't really tell it's sparkly on this pic).

My Hubby made an encaustic picture for this card (encaustic = wax, painted on with an iron!). I am hopeless at this technique but hubby is just getting better and better at it! I added the peel-off greeting as I thought it would enhance the picture.

My sister-in-laws birthday is this weekend - she is very cool and trendy and I think she will love this pink petticoat image! I put 3D gloss on the present, the drawn flower and the centre of all the little sunflowers.

I even made Hubbys card ready for valentines day. The day before, Friday Feb 13th, we are on a ghosthunt!!! We have been to one before and had a fantastic time...we shall be there from 10:30pm - 4am, at the hall where we married, so didn't want to be thinking about making this card that night! Again, I used "wordle" for the just type in words to do with a subject, and it jiggles them about, and makes them different sizes and keep going till you find an arrangement you like! I handcut the hearts and sent one through the swirls embossing folder. The heart at the top is made of gold card, but it showed up more like black on this photo! I added ribbon to the top and little touches of gold stickles glitter here and there.
