2 House Mouse Decoupage + 3 Others.

Afternoon folks on this very deary wet day. A bit warmer but grim. I am getting so excited as we have booked up to go to Malta in May for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. I can not wait!!!

My first card today is for a neighbours 90th Birthday in February. Bless him he seems to have aged this past year and is getting very frustrated that he can not do things. Up until then he was very good at getting about. He keeps falling over now and is very forgetful and complains that he can not ride his bike anymore!!!!

For his card I have used Joanna Sheen's CDROM "The Royal Horticultural Society Collection" Both the image and bp are from it. Both have been mat and layered onto gold mirri card. The 90 and Happy Birthday are a peel off.

For this card I have taken both bp's from Joanna Sheen's CDROM "The Cardmaker's Year". The House Mouse Decoupage sheets are also from Joanna. This sheet is from "Housemouse Two - Home & Garden. The punch used is Martha Stewart's "Valentine Lace" edger punch.

This card is the same details except I have used one layer less of decoupage and matted it onto a Spellbinders Heart Nestie. The message is a peel off. This one has been made for my Step Daughters 10th Wedding Anniversary.

This card and the one below have been made for a customer. The instructions were it was for a male who will be 21 but she wanted it as plain and simple as possible and also wanted the insert left blank!!! I have made her two for her to choose from. This one has the car image from Google printed on to satin photo paper. Main card is red Stardream card. It is mounted onto black satin card, the letters have also been cut from the same card. The card was bought from Joanna Sheen and the letters were cut on my Cuttlebug with a Cuttlebug Alphabet die.

This is the second card made for her to choose from. Again the image is from Google. Main card is blue Stardream card bought from Joanna Sheen. This time the image has been mat & layered onto silver mirri card, the letters have been cut from the same. Again I have used my Cuttlebug to cut the letters.
Thank you for visiting today and I hope the weather is better with you.
