Happy Birthday Aaron and Good Luck in your new job.

This is a dual purpose card.  This is for Aaron to celebrate his birthday and also to wish him good luck with his new job as a fully fledged Police Officer.
I started with a dark blue base card.  The background paper is one that I made using the My Craft Studio (TM) software as I imported the police car design on to another background paper.
I drew out the Police helmet using my Silhouette Cameo (TM).
The sentiment and the "Police Line" ribbon at the top is printed using the MCS (TM) software.

Good luck Aaron, you will make a fine officer, I am sure.

I am so sorry to hear of the death of Grandad Eric.

This is a card that I made for Pat who is Suzy's Grandma following the sad loss of her husband Eric.
I used a 8 X 8 white card and added a gold background layer with a pretty background paper on top.
The topper is from a Hunkydory (TM) set that I have and the "With Sympathy" sentiment is from Craftwork Cards (TM).
Rest in Peace Eric. xxx

Happy Birthday Nephew John.

I liked the way that the other pint glass card worked out that I could not resist another.
This is one for John's nephew, also called John.  He is a beer drinker so this card was done with brown papers.

Happy 60th Peter!

I have just decided, we know a lot of people called Peter!

This card is made for our daughter-in-law's step dad who celebrates his 60th on 30th April.

We went out with the family the other evening and Pete had a Guinness (TM), so I thought, great, I will run with that, he also wore a black and white jumper which just added to the irony!!

This is a huge 8 X 8 card.

I cut a 6 X 6 background paper in both designs and sliced them horizontally to give the background effect.  You guessed it, I have another set of triangles for another Guinness card when needed!!

I cut a pint glass shape in white on the Silhouette Cameo (TM) machine and then another in black which I cut shorter to give a "head" on the drink effect.

I added a "60" peel off and covered the whole glass with acetate so that it looked like a glass.

The pint glass was mat and layered on to white, black and silver layers to let the main image shine!

I added a Craftwork Cards (TM) sentiment to the bottom corner.

Happy 60th Peter. xxx

Happy Birthday Mum and Nancy!

I must admit I sort of cheated with these cards, I loved the effect when I made the first one for Mum and thought it would also make a lovely card for Nancy too.

This is a card from the Silhouette Cameo (TM) template store.

I used a purple card for the bottom vase and added a few little gems to the butterflies.

The leaves are done using a background green card that fades into a light green as it goes down the card.

The tulips are cut with a base layer of orange and then a top layer of yellow.

I added a little glitter glue to add a little dimension, after all nothing says "I love you" more than a bit of glitter glue sparkle!!

Happy Birthday Mum and Nancy. xxx

Happy Birthday Peter.

This is a "tongue in cheek" card as the gentleman who is celebrating his birthday has a surname which begins with the letter "T", hence the character Mr. T!

I took a picture of Pete's house and then added Mr. T and sentiment, decoupage style, to the card.

I finished the card off with a chain that is wrapped a couple of times around the card as Mr. T always wore lots of chains on the T.V show "The A Team"!

I hope Peter has a great birthday.
