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 :)

Coco Chanel Fashion Birthday card

Well I've done Dior and Vivienne Westwood (Phoebe's Moomin card) so I thought Chanel should be next :) This is for my friend Andrea.
 Paper used is Luxe Classic Black - Fresh Cut Grass
 All the Chanel graphics were sourced from the web and were gone over with glitter pens and clear glaze pen.

Art Nouveau Cat Birthday card

I've decided Art Deco is too hard to do, so I went for an Art Nouveau(ish) design instead (plus it's my favourite of the two designs).
The paper used is from Graphic 45's Rare Oddities collection - Random Relics.

The trouble with doing MDF kits is getting my brain back into card making, and try as I might I kept thinking about Rupert the Bear, so my Dad has ANOTHER Rupert card to add to his collection !!!
Everything is computer generated, including the yellow check that took me two days to do because I kept messing with it.
Thanks for looking and take care & keep smiling.
