Hubbys' Christmas Card

This was a very last minute card I made for my husband. I love the red, black and white together, the snowflake was donated by my daughter, was attached to a pair of fancy pyjamas which she received last Christmas as a gift, its felt. I added some silver stickles glue and a little merry christmas motif, along with a black gem. The writing is by my own fair hand, I don`t normally do this, I usually use the computer but I was in a hurry, added some more stickles for a Christmassy feel, but not too much as to make it too feminine. I like it and my husband was delighted with the finished article!

Girlie Bling!

This little card was made so quickly, but I think it`s very effective and typically girlie! Pain white card blank, overlaid with some pink paper from Laura Ashley. The little cocktail dress was from a kit very kindly given to me by my sister in law for Christmas, added a sticky ribbon also from Laura Ashley, some little flowers blinged up with some Stickles glue and a little "for you" greeting. This will be snapped up soon as my daughters are always looking for cards for thier school friends!

Happy Birthday

This card I really love. White card blank, overlaid with some black handmade paper. Stamped some flowers and a butterfly on to white card and layered this up on some red and black card. The red "ribbon" is some paper raffia that was left over from wrapping my presents, I mounted this on a strip of white card for stability. Added a "Happy Birthday" motif I found lying around, and a little paper flower with a black gem. I think the colour combo is very striking and could pass for a young recepient as well as a more mature one!
