New baby card with lacey shoe

A friend's neighbour became a Grandma on Christmas day, so I was asked to make this in a hurry. The baby was born in Norway ( hense the strange name and the flag) She is going out to see him 2nd January. It is an adapted Kizzy Dizzy card enlarged to fit A5 card A close up of the shoe...............which was surprisingly easy to do! I may just put a small blue bow on the front of the shoe.......it looks a bit bare!

Had to re do this card

I am not a happy bunny! I made a card for a friend which had to go to America for her brother's birthday on 23rd Dec. It turned out a lovely card......even if I do say so myself................Scroll down it is the ones with horses on! Anyway.......It got there of sorts...............she phoned to tell me the other night when it arrived it looked like it had been dunked in a bucket of water. Well, you all know what inkjet printing looks like if it gets wet!!
But he stuck it on the mantlepiece regardless. But he couldn't read the words or anything!!
She was so upset she asked me to make another but as the only thing that had survived was the topper of the horses ( because I has sprayed it with spray and shine possibly) Could I do a photography image. I have to say I don't like this one as much as the horses, but who am I to argue! The backing and the verse are the same as the first one because she said they were lovely words.

Another man's easel card

His birthday is Christmas day and seeing as he is 70 this year is having a party on 27th Dec. He loves his allotment, so I thought this image to be fitting. I assume his name is Patrick! An order for a friend of mine.

Hopefully the last for this year!!

Just a couple of last minute ones. There is always one person who leaves it to the last minute!

A Change from Christmas Cards

An image from "Belly Button babies" I had to chop it around a bit to accomodate the photo, but think it's worked out quite well. I hope Morgan enjoys seeing himself driving a train!

My First Ever Easel Card 8 x 8

I was asked to make a card for a man...............Yuk!!! I thought..........I hate doing men's cards. I didn't know anything about the man either, just that he was in his 50's!..... So..........I thought I'd try an easel card...............never done one before in my life. But I can honestly say I enjoyed doing it..........A man's card I enjoyed doing!! Now the only problem is how do I put it in the cello bag? With the front showing or with the front folded in? If the front is folded in then it naturally wants to open as an easel card. If the front is showing will they know how to display it? Decisions decisions.................
