Christening card

This is a card I made to celebrate the Christening of our 2 year old great niece at the weekend. The artwork is a free download from Rusty Alfrey designs and can be found here. Do take a look at this blog as there are some super designs.
I manipulated the image with a Photo program to get it the right colour and size (clever eh? It started out blue) It was then printed onto pearlescent paper and layered onto pink card.
The white card blank is A5 size and has been covered with a mat of pale pink card and white pearlescent paper the same as the topper. A double layer of different widths of pink organza ribbon have been attached across the corner of the larger matting and a pink organza bow on the corner of the topper. A simple peel-off sentiment completes the card.

2 of those!

I've spent the morning measuring and cutting to make these 2 notebooks. The 'hearts' one is a Thank You gift and the other is part of a Birthday gift for 5 year old.
I added a charm and ribbons to the adult one and lots of bright coloured pages for the childs.They were very quick and easy to make as the front covers are postcards from Ikea cut down to a 10x15 cm size with a backer and pages to fit, all bound with my BIA.

I've got to find a padded bag now to fit the thank you gift into then off to the Post Office.

My Birthday cards

These are all the lovely hand crafted cards I received for my birthday last Sunday.

Thank You so much to everyone who took the time to make a card for me, I really appreciate the effort put into them.I had to smile when I opened Keren's card as I had used the same image for her birthday which is just the day before mine. I hope none of you mind me displaying your cards for all to see but as most of you have blogs of your own I thought it ok to show your lovely creations on mine.
All of my presents from family and friends have been crafty ones so I am very lucky to have people who know my likes so well.
