An Early Birthday card for April

Made this card for a friend's daughter. It's from the Beatrix Potter range on CD by Crafters Companion. An 8 x 8 card is not my normal size of card, so was keen to have a go at it. I have always loved Beatrix Potter images - she was a very talented lady. And Peter Rabbit is my favourite.

Birthday Card

As its nearly spring, I thought I would make a card which I think depicts the start of spring, in my opinion. Daffodils are one of my favourite flowers and have always got them at this time of the year. The image is from Fred She Said.

Card for Grandma

Here is the card I made for my friend Lydia who has recently become a grandma. Let's hope she doesnt peak on my blog before it arrives as I am a bit late in posting it. No looking Lyds.

New Baby Boy

One of my friend's daughter's had a baby boy on Thursday. George weighed in at 10lb 11 ozs. Poor Kayleigh had a bit of a time in labour. Mum, baby and grandma are all doing well - thank goodness. Here's the card I made to welcome George into the world. And yes its decoupage with some card candy.

Man's Birthday Card

My friend Paul had a birthday last week. Didnt want to put his card on until after his birthday - just in case he peeked at my blog. Another easel card and yes it has decoupage too. Just cant help doing decoupage. I always plan not to - but then I do.

A Rose for a Rose

One of my colleagues at work has a birthday tomorrow and her name is Rose. I made this card as I thought it was appropriate. I used Sharon Duncan's Just for You Flowers. This is one of my favourite images from the CD.

Early Christmas Card or Late

Depends on how you look at it. I cut this out to give to my brother in law for Christmas, but ran out of time and put it away for this year. I love the Flippin range, but prefer to put them on A5 cards. I am so glad that they have brought out an A5 set now and they all have backgrounds. So that the original one fits in an A5 card I need to cut it down a bit to make it fit. As I'm down south I havent brought my peel offs so will finish it off when I go back home with some corners. My brother in law will get this card this year.

Handbag Cards

Have made these three handbag cards for my niece for cards that she needs for some friends. Thought she might like these.

Yet Another Couple of 50th Birthday Cards

One of the ladies in the office asked me would I do two 50th Birthday cards - this must be a popular week for 50th Birthdays. And yes I have done some more decoupage as she asked me to do them at short notice and my brain instantly thinks decoupage. Added some gems to the top one. And yet another Me To You Bear one. Giving her them tomorrow - so hope that she likes them.

50th Birthday Card

My best friend Susan is 50 on Thursday - I'm sure she wont mind me telling everyone. Originally wasnt going to do a decoupage card for her, but changed my mind. Well what can I say. I like doing decoupage and I love these Me To You Bears. Printed the card on my computer and added some card candy.
