Disney card

I made this card for our Godson to give to a special friend for Christmas, and, thank goodness, he loves it !! I used royalty free images from Disney websites and decoupage figures from a sheet that I bought..
The card is a three-fold card, first photo is the front and the second is the inside part..feel free to enlarge it for more detail..

TMTA - Black and White and Red

Normally, with this theme, I choose white background, black image and touches of red - with this ATC I have gone totally opposite - big RED splash, with touches of black and white, hope you like it !!

Art Deco card

This is a fancy fold card, I picked the idea up whilst blog hopping, but forgot to write down the name, so if you visit, whoever you are, thank you and I love your ideas. I made it with two sheets of A4 card, a beige mottled sheet and gold mirri card. The mottled card was sliced up to fit into the folds of the gold card. The word stamps were Stampin Up and the image is Hampton Arts Cozy Lady... I held the folds in place with thin double sided tape and finished off with some jewelled brads in toning colours..

Finally, I can post this today as it is my friend Carol's birthday (link down the left hand side) and it was made for her.

Loads'n loads of goodies..

I tell you this much, sister bloggers, since I keep having these senior moments, and forget to say 'No Thank You' when someone (like hubby) offers to buy me more craft goodies, and because I need to ring the changes so much with my charity cards (can't keep doing the same images can I?) well, when a special day happens - like every day is special to me, but today is more so, because today is my birthday, I have had a week of absolute crafting heaven, got some really super-dooper pressies, some beautiful hand-crafted cards and rounded it all off with lunch out today and yet another visit to a craft shop - and because my arthritis is behaving itself, life is very good at the moment and I am so happy I could burst !! I wish you all lived closer and we could share a crafty session or two :-) ....
