A Card for Kathy's mum

Kathy is one of my card group friends.. and her mum turned 94 - to make her day extra special some of our group made Kathy's mum birthday cards... 

It must be wonderful to receive an influx of unexpected birthday wishes... 

I added some flowers inside the card to make it extra special

I used a light green Bazzil card and used matching floral scrapbook paper to cut and emboss the pattern on the front with my Spellbinders borders...

For the loooove of Shoes!!

 So my friend Zubeida turned 40!! yep we are all getting on in years... LOL.. her dearest hubby asked me to maker her a card... now which "lady" doesn't looove her shoes.... I decided to go with some of her favourite colors... Black and white... and of course... some really truly divine shoes.... also a firm favourite of hers... she can still walk on these... I am afraid I have reached the flat's and "crocs" phase...LOL...

the shoe set is a clear set from Hero Arts (CL 303 High Heels) stamped in black Versafine ink.


I added a pretty ribbon flower as added interest and 2 introduce an accent color

A bit of bling is always welcome ;p)

the light grey wording is a Hero Arts Old French Writing  I used light grey / Silver to match the


Hero Arts small alphabet set CL 408 was used for the wording

Fabulous at 40!!

I was asked to make a card for a wonderful and vibrant 40 year old... this is what I came up with

The lady stamp is one of my best sellers its called Evening Glow 3679K from Penny Black
she is gorgeous! and so much fun to color in

I cuttlebugged the number 40 to add extra dimension - the dots also matched the dotty background paper 

I used my Penny Black alphabet set Kate Text 20-006 (this is an all time favourite) for the wording

My all time favorite Hero Arts Old French writing H2365 stamped in black on these plain flowers
of course a bit of bling is always fun!
