A big 'Thank You' to my secret partner, I won't find out who she is until I open a card with the final gift. That won't stop me from guessing though!

I have to share 5 facts about myself and then pass the award to 7 other deserving people so that we can find out a little about them as well.

This first one I made for Faith to give to her Daddy. I used a Popcorn Bear pyramage image from a Crafter's Companion Cd. It's layered up onto a matching backer and silver card. The sentiment is a peel-off on pearlescent paper.
The insert is printed fom the same Popcorn Bear floral cd.
This is the one we sent.
It has layers of silver card, pink pearlescent paper and cream pearlescent paper. The heart stamp is from Elusive Images and has been stamped with pink Brilliance ink and layered onto silver card cut slightly larger than the image. Tiny silver seed beads have been threaded and hung from each heart to give some movement to the card.
The sentiment is from the same stamp sheet and has again been layered onto silver card.
Tiny self adhesive crystals have been put in the corners of the sentiment plate and top cream layer.
The decoration for the envelopes are from Crafter's Cmpanion Cd's. The bottom one obviously matches Faith's card but i'm not sure where the other is from - maybe one of their Cute Companions Cd's

Instead I thought I would show the embellishments I made with my new nesties. I bought the snowflake set of dies and had fun using just 2 colours of paper and a few gold star shaped brads.
I can see i'm going to have fun with colour combinations when I finally get around to using them properly. I'm thinking purple/silver, blue/silver at the moment.
I made mine into a square card and used an image of Popcorn Bear along with a paper strip from the Christmas Cd. The main colour of my card is red with mats of red, gold and white. The embossing on the white mat is done with Swiss dots on the Cuttlebug. The ribbon is white spotty organza and the gems are in the corners of the gold mat. A lousy photo i'm afraid but it has been raining most of the day and the light is just awful.

This is what she has come up with, something quite different to the usual I think and a bit more challenging because of the shapes.
My new Cds arrived yesterday, they are the Hobby and Occupations from Crafter's Companion. I found the perfect image on them for my nephew's 9th birthday.
I hope Yvonne doesn't mind but I messed around with her sketch a bit by rotating it and flipping it to fit the decoupage on.I've used the comuter games decoupage from the Hobbies Cd printed onto card and layered up using a mixture of DST, foam pads and silicone glue to give different dimensions to the pieces.
The base card is white size A5 onto which i've put blue holographic card.
The stars have been printed onto a slightly smaller paper and the shape cut out to make a window through which to show the holographic card.
The ribbon has been fastened around the base layer and an oval of blue pearlescent card added. This has a peel-off greeting and message decorated with a pale blue brad.

What should have been a simple card to make actually took me most of the day due to said husband being at home and constantly interrupting me and generally putting me off.
Here is my card using an image of Popcorn Bear printed from the Christmas cd. I've used bright blue and silver on white backing papers from Crafter's Companion with an added piece of pale blue pearlescent cardstock.
