This weeks cards

I have been making some more cards this week....

 I just made this card (and the one below) last night..for a friend who loves shoes.
You might not believe this, but the shoes are actually from
wrapping paper!  Looking through
my stuff, I realised it was the only shoe stuff I had!
I cut carefully round the shoe,
popped it onto card and cut carefully round it again.
It gave it some proper strength.
I used 3-d foam to mount onto the embossed background... I love this background!
I scalloped the edge ...and cut quite a bit off.
The peel-off is one of my fave sentiment that font!

I made this card last night, too. 
Again, I used a wrapping paper shoe and this time I used a backing paper from my stash.
I hand-wrote the sentiment.

 Just like the other stack-of-present-cards I have made,
I used my own template and covered it with baby papers, and a couple
of cute little bears from nitwits. Ribbon is from my stash.

 I made this one for a friend, whose fave colour is green.
The papers are from papermania and the little presents are diecuts ..also papermania.
I love the little tags that craftwork cards sell (on top of stack).
Ribbon from stash.

This was such a difficult card to come up with...
 a card, for a 17 yr old boy...and I have been making him cards since he was 12
so he had games console cards, bike cards, sport cards, etc.
I think he will think this quite "street" and "trendy" ...but, who knows?
I'm not too sure about the minds of 17 yr old males!
Fingers crossed!

Great selection of cards but my fav is your last card. As for 17 year old boys and their minds . . . lets say I have 3 teenage boys in my house ranging from 13 to 19 and I'm not sure they even have minds!!!
