My first order from a stranger

The other day I received a question via e-bay regarding a couple of art drco ladies cards that I have on there for sale. the lady asked if I was able to add some greetings to the front of the cards as it is her mother's 50th birthday at the weekend and she is a fan of Art Deco. They have even got her a cake with an art deco picture on it. I e-mailed her back and said that I could make her 3 different cards as the one's on e-bay couldn't be altered. I advised her that I would make them and e-mail pictures to her to see if she liked them.
These are the cards that I made. The images all come from freebies I got from Creative Crafting Magazine.

I have just received an e-mail from her to say that she loves them and wants them..whoo hoo.. I'm so excited.

Anniversary Cards

Well yesterday I made a couple of anniversary cards for my sister and her hubby and my niece and her husband.
The first card is a square pearlescent card. The topper was bought ages ago not sure where, I think it may have been at a show from the 'Pound man'. The flower comes from K & Company, the ribbon and gems are from my stash. It was finished off with a silver peel off.

This card is also on a square pearlescent card. The yellow backing paper is from my stash and it has been put through the cuttlebug and embossing folder (swiss dots). The topper is from the same place as the previous one. the flower and gems were from my stash. This was finished off with a gold peel off.

My big sister is 50!!!

My sister, Mandy is 50 in a couple of weeks time so I wanted to make her a special card. Last week I was sorting through some old photos and found this one of her. It w as taken at a holiday camp in Weymouth in about 1969. She was 9 at the time.
I printed the picture onto white card and then matted it onto black card which was cut using Nellie Snellon nesties. The greeting was computer generated and printed onto white card, cut and then also matted onto black card cut with the smaller rectangle of Nellie Snellon. The backing paper is from Papermania Creative Tones - Ivory Black, the flowers are from Papermainia Capsule Collection. Gems and bows were from my stash.
The card is an A5 card blank in white.

Another man's card

Well just when I thought it was safe I have another man's card to do. This one is on a square card 125mm. Backing card and paper are from my stash and the decoupaged image is from the sheets I got from The Range which I have found to be a god send. The greeting is from craft work cards and layered onto a small scalloped circle nestie. The image is is layered onto black card cut from a Nellie Snellen nestie. I have also added some card candy to finish it off.

I haven't been able to make any more cards this week as I have been doing my packs for the house party which is coming up very quickly.. but I can say that I have finished them all now....
