3 Birthday Cards/1 Valentine

Good afternoon, the sun has been out today but boy was it cold. I got up at the crack of dawn to have a fasting blood test today, I was there at 7.40 am at the hospital. They don't start doing them until 8.30 but if you are not there to get your number early you have hoards in front of you. My breakfast tasted lovely this morning after going without anything.

We booked a second day trip yesterday over the internet for when we go to Malta in May, so doing this makes it seem nearer.

The image-bp and insert for this Valentine's card has been taken from "Popcorn the Bear - Romance" CDROM by Crafter's Companion. The image is a Twisted Pyramage. The cardstock and peel off are from my stash.

This Tractor card is one of three cards I have made for a customer to choose from for a male birthday. I was told he likes Tractors, Cats especially black & white ones. The image is from Google and it has been put through 3D Decoupage 2 Card Builder from Card Creations Plus to Pyramage it. The bp is from "Animal Antics" CDROM by Joanna Sheen. Both the bp and image have been printed onto Satin Photo Paper and mat and layered on silver mirri card. Greeting banner is from my stash. The main card is "Stardream" from Joanna Sheen.

This is the second card for the customer to choose from. The cat is actually one of my past babies that sadly is no longer with us and is sadly missed. He's name was Jon Jon. He was named this as at the cat home they called him John Wayne because he had been in a car accident and his legs looked like he had just got off of his horse!!!! I digress, sorry. The image has been printed onto Satin Photographic Paper. It has been mat and layered on silver mirri card cut with Spellbinders Nesties. Petite Circles Scalloped S4 115. The card is a Silver Scroll card with envelope and is from QVC item no 587997QZOO. The greeting is a peel off from my stash.

Inside of card, which Blogger has once again turned the wrong way.
This A5 Gatefold card is the third card for the customer to choose from. I have used the Jayne Netley Mayhew Collection CDROM. I have used disc 2 of the 2 disc set. Both the bp's and image are from this super CDROM by Joanna Sheen. The image and bp's have been mat and layered on gold mirri card. Peel off is from my stash.
Thank you for looking once again today.
