Happy 1st Anniversary to Peter & Catherin.

This is an Anniversary card for our daughter-in-law's Step Dad and Mum.

This is an A5 card base with a pearl effect paper for the background.

I used a Sizzix (TM) A6 paper with hearts on to add a little interest to the back of the main image.

The image is taken from a photograph of the church where Peter and Catherin got married last year in Cricklade, Wiltshire, which was drawn using the Silhouette Cameo (TM) sketch pen facility.

I matted the image on to a white background and then added a "Happy Anniversary" sentiment with a blue mat to go with the blue hearts on the Sizzix background paper.

I cannot believe one year has already flown past since the lovely day of the wedding.

May you celebrate many more Peter and Catherin. xxx

Happy 70th Chris!

This is a card for our next door neighbour, Chris.

I really enjoyed making this card.

It is an A5 card.  The base is black and I did an experiment with the Silhouette Cameo (TM) machine, by using a glue pen with the Silhouette Sketch Pen facility to add lots of computer geek words!  I then used perfect pearls over the glued words and I think that the experiment worked well, don't you?

I cut the circuit board effect using the Silhouette and cut a mat for it to sit on.

I bet you will never guess what Chris is into!!!!!

Happy Birthday Chris.

Happy Birthday Peter

This is a birthday card for a lovely neighbour of ours. 

I cut out the camera shape using my Silhouette Cameo (TM) cutting machine twice and added a concertina spine to each side to make the card stand on it's own.
The detail was drawn with the Silhouette Sketch Pen facility.

The image is a Lili of the Valley (TM) image that I was lucky enough to win in the form of a paper set from the company.

I added a background for the car to set in front of and "snap" that completed the card!

Happy Birthday Peter.

Happy Birthday Carole

This is a card for a lovely neighbour of ours.
The card is a A5 card and I used a background paper that was black and pink to set off the main image.

The corset is drawn using the Silhouette Sketch Pen on my Silhouette Cameo (TM) machine.

The sentiment is drawn again with the sketch pen and then cut also on the Silhouette (TM).

I mat and layered the corset drawing on a background paper and then a dark pink paper also used for the sentiment layer.

I added some bought rose embellishments that I had in my stash.

Happy Birthday Carole!

Happy 90th Birthday Eric!

This is to celebrate Eric being 90 years young, he is a really lovely man and so I thought deserves a really special card.

This is a A5 card and although the detail is difficult to see, the background is a graphite paper with a fleck of silver running through it.

I cut the "90" stencil from the graphite paper and put a green background behind it.

The embellishments are all rub on's which I think just makes the card.

Happy 90th once again Eric, hope you had a lovely time.
