Happy Birthday Tamara

A little card for my niece Tamara who is 9 today. I used a Hanglar image, paper pieced it and coloured with promarkers. The flower as made using different sized daisy punches, the sentiment was made on the computer and matted onto some nestie oval shapes.

21st Birthday

This was a commission for a book type card - it's an 8x8 card with five pages containing some beautiful poems a lady has written about her now 21 year old son as he was growing up. I covered the front
in these fab Doodlebug papers teamed up with some turquoise cardstock. I printed the sentiment on the computer, jigged around with the words using Alfredo's dance font and then printed it onto the paper.. The spine was covered in the turquoise cardstock and then I added a border of wording made on the computer.

On Your Special Day

Still on the white on white theme - this time a wedding card. I embossed the base card with some lines  using my scorepal, I cut out a nestie shape and also embossed lines on it  and then added some Stickles glitter glue to the lines. The diecut bird on a branch is from Marianne dies which I have run through my Bigshot in an embossing  folder. I added some rolled flowers I made - my first attempt at these and then added some sparkle in the centres. The sentiment was made on the computer and I added a few gems to finish.

Fabulous Fairy

Many thanks to Red Rottie (docrafts) for the beautiful image of the fairy - she prints out wonderfully clear and is a dream to colour. I used some promarkers to colour her and glamourdusted her wings. The papers are from Pink Petticoat and the sentiments I made on the computer. I photograped this outside in bright sunlight and the colours are a bit washed out looking.
