Border Collie Birthday Card

                                   I made this card late last month for Loz.
                                   The image is a Canine Companion Wavy
                                   Stacker, if was a little different to make.
                                   I haven't made any cards this week, I've
                                   been all caught up with the Christmas craziness.
                                   I used floral embellishments, brad, stickers
                                   and die cut.

                                just love it, I have made it for my 5 year old
                                grandson, I know he will love the icicles die.

Grandfather Xmas Card

                                         The weather in Perth is beautiful
                                         at present, so I have been very
                                         busy in the garden, So much to do!
                                         My intention is to have a beautiful
                                         garden for Christmas, but it is a
                                         lot of work. I've certainly used up
                                         a lot of calories the past few days!
                                         The card I have made is for my Aunty,
                                          who bedridden and is cared for in a
                                         nursing home, she is in a bad way and
                                         I'm not sure if she will make it to
                                         Christmas. The man in the photo is her
                                          father taken in 1913, Hector Coyne was
                                          his stage name. I made it with some SB
                                          paper and the poinsettia die cuts.

Two Cute Puppies

me as their winning commenter last week,

Rose Card

This week I have made a card for a lady who 
will be celebrating her 60th birthday on Friday.

3d image, sewed and beaded the card, inked the
edges and the corners were cut from a Nellie
Snellen die.
