Half terms done and I've been crafting!

Well, I have been busy this half term...
Here are pics of some of the cards I have made.
(Been making "other things" too... will show you soon!)

 This first card was made for a music lover.
I decupaged the violin and added plenty of glossy accents, as well as a digi sentiment.
I have also had a thing recently, for butterflies...
they keep appearing on my cards! :)

 Spot the butterflies! ;)
I thought this image was great fro a fresh and funky card for an
18 yr old girl.
Papermania papers gave a bit of "Zing!" to the background.

 This one, I made for a friend who isn't feeling too great at the min.
It's a Pink Petticoat image and backing paper.
I coloured the bird with my watercolour pencils and
used paper flowers and a butterfly(!) to adorn it.

I was asked to make this card for a little girl who has been in hospital recently.
She has difficulty seeing, but I know she loves her art,
so made this with one biog and bold image, a colourful background
and glossy accents over her name, so she can feel her name.
(I handcut the paintbrush.)
Thanks for looking.  xxx

Ooooh, men!

Why is it, that the two men I had to make cards for last week, 
don't drink beer, or like footie? Typical!

 So, this  card I made for my friend, who I happen to know, likes
a good brew! He's always on his "lappy" and likes a game every now and then, on his wii.
I grabbed together some digi images and decoupaged the brew and the wii remote. 
Of  course, glossy accents features heavily! x

..and this one, I made for my sisters man who likes a good movie.
Digi elements again, with some decoupaged elements...popcorn, cushion, etc.
Thanks for looking and any comments... xxx

A couple of commissions

I love it when I get a commission, but at the same time...
I always worry if the buyer will like the finished card!!

A friend at work asked me to make this one, for her man.
The only stipulation she gave me, was there had to be some embossing
on iot...she loves the embossed look!
I know he's quite a handman and enjoys that kind of stuff, so I used loads
of digi elements altogether to create this image.
I decoupaged some of the tools and used plenty of G.A.

 I took a close-up picture of the next card.

This was for a 5 yr old girl, not very girly, who loves cats.
I thought she would adore this image!
Her name and age are made from "Sue Dreamer" stickers.
I also used Docrafts paper and craftworks cards sentiment.
Stars and butterfly for a die cut pack from poundland!

 I love this card...
if i do say so myself! hahaha...
digi paper, inked with brown chalk. Digi image , decoupaged,
also the letters of her name.
Pc generated sentiment and punched bitterflies,
with stickles glitter on the wings.
Thanks for looking and comments xxx
