New Year - New Birthdays

For my Sister-in-Laws Birthday card I used Sugar Plum Lola Digi by Simply Betty Stamps.  Jayne is very much into her dancing and thought this image best represented this.  The flowers were spares from my cousins wedding and I think they really bring the card together, the stars are from a collection I received for Christmas.

You can find the image on the following link:-

This is a birthday card I made for one of Ryleigh's classmates.  The A is for Alison and the image is from Etsy and is a Sherrie Baldy Bestie and is super sweet.  I surrounded her with flowers and made it very girlie.  I added a made with love charm and attached it with a red ribbon.

Special Birthday Card for Tamara's Partner

Tamara of TSC made a request to all her followers for everyone to make a birthday card for her partner Roy and to post them to him as a surprise.  She informed us of his age, that he liked smexies and dragons and let us go with whatever we wanted.

I choose to do Dreamy Dragon which I got from Weestamps @
 The backing paper was from a collection I recieved with Papercrafter Magazine.  Flowers are from Dovecraft and personal stash.  I coloured the dragon picture with promarkers using blue and green for the dragon and purple and brown for the tree and flowers.  The cut out shapes around the image and the happy birthday stamp were cut on my silhouette machine.

SBS January Fan Page Challenge Part 3

And last but by no means least is Cupid Elisabete. 

The theme for this image was:- Ribbon, Pink/Red flowers.

The backing paper is from the same collection, the clouds were cut using my silhouette machine and then I draw on the swirls with two different colour blues.  The flowers are from my own personal stash and so was the ribbon, which I rapped a rose around the centre. The image was coloured in with promarkers and finished off with a few pink hearts.

I had the best time colouring these images in and I hope that you like them too x

The next image is:- Cupid Corinne.

 for this image the theme was Red/Pink/White and lots of Hearts.  The backing papers are again from the same collection from my Papercraft magazine.  The hearts were cut on my silhouette machine and coloured in with a red glitter glue pen.  The red swirls are cutouts from the red mirror card heart above, which I purchased online.  The large Mirrorcard Heart is backed with plain pink card to help both bring it out on the paper and to help attach to the card.  The rose is from an old hairclip and I placed a few little pink heart gems around the image and gold framing to the top right corner to finish.

Christmas Cards

These are some of the Christmas cards that I made for family members.  I will go through them one by one which will be easier.

This was made using Demented Beauty which is a TSC digital stamp.  The papers are part of a pack that I bought from Wilkinsons and was a build your own card kit, wish Id got more than one as it had some fantastic things in it.  The flower was from my personal stash and the wreath was from an online free digi I found and coloured myself.  The embellishments are from a kit I inherited so couldnt tell you the name of them sorry.

For this one I used Selina Skyward also provided by TSC and all other elements are also from the same places.

This one was also done using Selina Skyward.  Elements are from a pack I recieved with my Papercraft magazine.  For this one I decided to make Selina stand out a little and attached her using some small square foam pads.

For this one I used Mr & Mrs Claus Digital Stamp provided by SBS.  All other elements  are from the same source as the other cards.

This one was made using Selina Skyward (link above), papers from Papercraft magazine, snowflakes from Misskatecuttables and flowers were Dovecraft.

This was made with Krissy Kringle provided by TSC and was made as a christmas card for my lovely husband.  Flowers are from personal stash and other elements are from my personal stash.
