A few orders and one for a little boy whose birthday is Dec 25th

Th first four are orders, two for Harley and two for Stacey. The lady that ordered these has had about 20 made in the last couple of months......I am running out of ideas!!

The last one is for Lenny, who was born on Christmas day three years ago....He was born 4 months before his due date, and has Cerebral Palsy...... not too bad....But he isn't quite walking on his own yet. We often see him holding his mummy's hand and walking around the Cul-de-Sac opposite us, but he just hasn't got the confidence to go it alone yet.

A bit of BLING!

I decided to steer away from Christmas cards this week and do a fun card instead. The theme at LIM is "A bit of bling"
The image is from the clipart fairy.

I found time for one more

This was a digital stamp I had, that I made into a silhouette. A bit tedious but worth every minute! Inspiration for this one came from Viv....thanks Viv. I think it makes an unusual wedding card!
This is my third entry into this week's LIM challenge....which is Silhouettes

2nd Card for LIM challenge

Had to do this while I had it in my head, it's the 2nd card for this week's challenge at LIM. The recipe this week is silhouettes. I quite like the sentiments cards, they don't really need anything else on them

This week has been manic

What with organising MIL funeral etc. There was the music to sort and the order of service to be done. But I have found the time this morning to do my LIM card for this week. I hope it qualifies as a silhouette card, which is this week recipe. All done with fonts again, with a little glamour dust on the snow covered letters.
I thought you might like to see the front of the order of service I designed too. She loved her orchids and they thrived when she was alive and when she died so did her orchids.....strange!!

Thank you all for your condolences last week, and for all your congratulations on my winning the October prize. It surely was a week of mixed emotions!

It's been a sad week this week

We lost my hubby's mother on Thursday. She was 92 and about 8 weeks ago she was diagnosed with cancer in the oesophagus. Poor thing suffered for eight weeks before giving up her fight for life. At least she is free from pain now, and we have our wonderful memories.
Now to my card, I think her death influenced me to make a thinking of you card this week for the LIM challenge. I had just the image, lovely and soft colours but with the leaves that is this week's challenge.

Red and Orange mark 3

This is the third card for The Less Is More challenge this week.

Which if you hadn't guessed it is RED and ORANGE

Not colours I would normally use together, but the more I see the more I like.
As you know I am not into stamping, but I like to play with the computer and see what I can come up with. I have a program called Greetings Card Factory and it's amazing what you can do with that.

I started by making an oblong of background using the reds and oranges and blended into a radial  shape, when I was happy with the background I added  a digital image of the birds on top.

Red and Orange mark 2

The second card I've made for the Less is More challenge this week. Which is red and orange. I think I prefer this card, as the colours are stronger than the first one. Again done with the same font and the sentiment also computer generated.(yippy skippy)

Red and Orange

Yes that is the colours for this week's challenge on Less is More
Because it is also bonfire night here in UK they thought red and orange symbolised the colours of flames.

The card I've made reminds me of the Orient. The medallion is actually made up from a font I found and I've been meaning to have a play with for quite a while. The sentiment is also computer generated.
