Harry's Birthday Card

I made this card for Harry's third birthday party.  It was a safari theme and I thought the rhino image was rather appropriate.  The girls dressed as a tiger and a lion.  We didn't have much in the way of costumes, but some face paint and paper ears attached to some elastic and viola!  They had a great time and came home high as a kite.

The layout is a variation of Mojo Monday's #214 layout and the digi stamp is from Meljen's Designs.

Mulitple digital stamps

This is my forray into combining multiple digital stamps to make one image.  I am really happy with the way this has come up.  The hair isn't blended all that well, but a black out when I was part way into it messed things up a bit.  Love the colours I chose for the hair though, just need more practice!  The stamps are from Make it Crafty, my favourite digital stamp store.

Levi's Birthday

Finally finished Levi's birthday card, just waiting for the glue to dry.  Glitter gives you a great effect, but it is a pain to work with.  I think I got more of it over myself, the table and the floor than actually ended up on the card.  I'm very happy with the way it has come up, just wish I could have got the scissors inbetween his arm and head, but I was a little concerned I might have chopped his arm off!

Boy's Birthday Card

I'm really proud of this card, I think it is one of the best I have done to date.  One of those that I would rather not give away, oh well.  For once I actually chose the paper BEFORE I coloured the picture, made life so much easier (mental note for the future!).  I had already decided to colour in this Pollycraft image before this weeks challenge was announced, the girls are off to a boys birthday party this weekend.  When it turned out to be a layout, I just followed along with their design.  Hopefully they like it, I do!

Fairy Party

Freyja has been invited to her first birthday party from a kinder friend. I think I am more excited that she got the invitation than she is! The party is Princesses and Fairies, so I followed the theme for the card. I just went with the flow with the colours, whatever took my fancy and was very lucky to find matching paper (I usually can't find paper to match). I'm very happy with the way it turned out.

Tuesday Digital Challenge

This is my submission for the Digital Tuesday Challenge.  The theme this week is your favourite ice cream combinations, so mine is rainbow!  It happened to luckily coincide with the last of the birthday parties, a rainbow party.  I was really happy with the way this came up, to the point where I wish I didn't have to give it away.  At least the mother of the recipient is into card making herself and won't throw it away.

More Birthday Cards!

I am nearly at the end of all the birthday parties, just one more to go!  It  has been crazy since Easter.  These are two more cards that I made.  I made a third, but I was in such a rush with it, I forgot to take a picutre of it.  Never mind.

I'm really pleased with the way the dinosaur came up.  The stamp doesn't have lines for the contours of his legs, I extended the shading while I was colouring.

Since we are on the theme of birthdays, I thought I might add the invitation I made for Nessa's party.

Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday's Galore!

It is the season for little girls birthday parties! My eldest daughter had her own birthday party, plus another last weekend and will be attending another three this weekend. Needless to say, I have had an awful lot of cards to make, so I thought I would share a few. The above card was for my daughter Nessa. We gave her a Repunzel Barbie and I thought this would go nicely. She loved it! Below are two that will be handed out this coming weekend, and two that have already been gifted.  I still have another two to make. At least the images are coloured in, so all I have to do is create a card around them.  I hope you like them.

Mother's Day

I have finally got around to actually uploading something I have made! I think I need a lot more practice in photography and photo editing, but this will have to do for now. I made this for my Mum. I won't see her until Wednesday, giving some much needed extra time to finish. Things have just been so crazy buzy of late it is rediculous, hence the late creation. It is made though, that is the main thing.
