Dior 18th Birthday Card

 I don't make cards normally for people who ask as it's just a hobby but I had an email from a lady who's grandson celebrates his 18th in July and like my son is a Dior fan. Well as you can't get fashion house cards in the shops and I enjoyed making the Dior card for my son I said OK ...

Unicorn Birthday Card For My Niece

It's my niece Pippa's 8th birthday on the 1st of April, and at the moment finds toilet humour extremely funny so I made a card that had that. I apologise in advance for the poem, I made it up and as you can see I'm not very good at it but I think my niece will like it....

All images were sourced from the internet and coloured in using Derwents coloursoft pencils and sansador and the flowers were coloured with Tim Holt distress inkpads and distress markers. The next photos show the rest of the stuff I used to make the card.

Thanks for looking and take care and keep smiling.

50th Birthday card for a man

My friend asked me to make a card for her husband who is 50 this year. He has his own band, writes his own songs/music, has albums for sale on Amazon and plays gigs regularly in London. So with this in mind I came up with this...

 It's all computer generated again. The 50 on the box was printed onto card, hand cut and then painted with Tim Holtz Brushed Pewter Distress paint. The treble clef the same but coloured with Zig Wink of Stella Red brush pen. None of the artwork is mine and I take no credit for it.
PS, the bars of music on the box are "Happy Birthday To You"

Nightmare before Christmas Valentines day card

Haven't made this to send to anyone (I'm VERY happy being single) and I haven't made it for anyone else to give. I made it because I wanted to ...
Dies used -
Impression Obsession - Heart Stems

Papers used have been in my stash for AGES so I won't bother listing them as they are no longer available.

The large hearts on the front and inside of card are hand cut.

Took my inspiration from this card. Sorry don't have the link!

Take care and keep smiling :)
