wedding invitation

My son is getting married soon and I was asked to make the invitations :)

 The envelopes were plain and I added the border on the flap.
The bunting was printed onto cotton photo fabric.

Take care & keep smiling :)

Game of Thrones Birthday Card

Made this card for my friend who is a big fan of Game of Thrones, can't say I like the program myself but hey ho each to their own :)
The entire card is made from different pictures I found on the Internet and take no credit for the artwork. The front picture for example is made up of three pictures, the clouds, girl and dragon all by different artists but merged together to make  what I consider to be a convincing picture. The sword on the front of the card was bought off eBay.
Take care and keep smiling :)

Zombie 21st Birthday Card and Altered Tin

My friend asked me to make a card for her son's 21st birthday, so I did :)
 Many computer generated graphics. The tin is a Cadbury's biscuit tin covered in Ducktape "Metalika" and a decal bought from eBay. The biohazard tape was bought from Amazon. The rifle and cover where from my exstensive collection of  bits and pieces I've saved, found or collected.
Take care & keep smiling :)

Frog Christmas Card for my Dad

My Dad and I use the line "cold as a frog" when we're feeling a bit chilly. So I thought I'd make the poem into a card for my Dad, though it isn't the full poem which isn't very appropriate for this time of year hahahaha .....

 The whole card including the backing paper where made on my computer from different pictures sourced from Pintrest and combined and manipulated for my purposes. I take no credit for the artwork that others spent time and effort creating.
Page 1 - made from 6 different pictures
Page 3&4 - made from 4 different pictures
Page 5 - made from 2 pictures

 Take care and keep smiling :)
