Birthday baking

I made this card recently, for a friend's birthday.
She's a cake baker: who loves cats!

The sentiment was computer generated. 
The cat is a diecut.
I shaped the bottom of the image so it looked like the edge of a shelf. 
I put glossy-accents on the cherries and 
a-wink-of-stella on the fruit-pie, then embossed the edges of the card. 
I thought this fitted better on the kraft card, rather than a white card-base.

Time for tea

I'm a bit late with this card  it should have been on yesterday.
I am completely to pot with what day we are on...

This challenge, over at the Colour Crazy Challenge,
we are being sponsored by one of my favourites: Knitty kitty designs
I got this lovely image: Kit T and cake.

I paper-pieced the teapot, cup and bunting
and coloured the rest with my alcohol markers. 
The "mum" is actually little stickers, which I thought would work well 
with the image - and the sentiment at the bottom is from my computer. 
The backing paper was from my stash and i punched the butterflies
and diecut the "precious heart" by memorybox.
This is a larger, square 8 x 8 inch card, for my Mum.

Happy birthday to Ewe!

Pattie's Creations is giving us a very popular
challenge this month - Birthdays!

I used her new image "Baa to you" ...

The image includes both sheep. 
I love the shocked look of the face of the one on the left!
I paper pieced the background, stamped the houses
and trees and fussy-cut around them to add them to the scene. 
Embossing around the edge of the whole thing
and hand-drawn faux stitching, finished this card.
