Comissioned cards

I have been asked to make a few cards recently.. and here are just some of them...

 A card for a nail manicurist....
I am using some of my 12 x 12 papers, as I have sooo many and don't really
 do much scrapbooking now...
so the backing paper is a piece of one of them.
The image is one I have had for yonks... the nail varnish bottle is from a digi kit...added plenty of glossy accents and glitter to the nails and varnish.
Butterflies are punched with my Martha Stewart punch.
I got a fab feedback from this card... the recipient said it was the best card she had ever received!!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges...
Robyns Fetish - square cards only - 19th Oct
Whoopsi Daisy - spots n dots - 20th Oct
Crafty Creations - sparkle and shine - 23rd Oct
The paper shelter - two colours only - 22nd Oct
Milk coffee challenge - spots n dots - 23rd Oct

 I made a card for a friend to give to her friend last year, for the birth of her twins...
now they are turning one and I was asked for another card.
The image is by Debbie Mumm- bought on PC Crafter, years ago!
(Don't think they are around's a shame!)
I flipped the image to make another teddy, the same, but facing the opposite way.
One ted is decoupaged and I put G.A on the balloons.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges...
Send a Smile 4 kids - bright colours  - 18th Oct
Eclectic Ellapu - happy 1st birthday - 19th Oct

This one was a hard one!
Looks sooo simple, but took a good while to design and get right -
a commission for my friends son.
Decoupaged banner and badge. Glossy accents used.
Embossed edge and double bordered.

Thanks for browsing my blog and any comments you leave on my cards. x
