Anniversary cat

Hubby and I just celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary
and I made him this card...

 I used a new die that I got recently (Cat in a circle) 
I had to cut a slightly bigger circle myself out of the kraft card, which 
was a bit tricky, but inking the edge a bit helped it look neater (Top tip!) 
The die actually has a butterfly on the circle too, but 
I didn't want that on this card for Hubby.
I stamped the little hearts 
on a cute backing paper, and... notice there are 18!
Some, I coloured white, some black and some, I used my gold stickles on. 
The 18 is die-cut from some small numbers I have.
I bought the sentiment stamps on a car boot sale and have used them on this card.
The two paw prints symbolize our 2 cats. 

Hubby loved it.  😊

Have a Llama-zing birthday!

This month, I used Pattie's imge 
"Linda the diva llama"
to create a friend for a friend of mine, who loves animals 
and visiting the zoo with his children. 

 I wanted to keep this quite clean and simple for my friend. 
I coloured the image with my promarkers and other alcohol pens ,using
a white jellipen to make the white fur textured lines. 
I have printed out and coloured the glasses again and popped them on 3d foam
with a little glossy accents on the black, to make the glasses shine. 
The sentiment was computer generated, as I printed off the llama. 
I dry-embossed the edges of the white card and inked along them.

I also made another version of this card for a female friend:
