Fat Cat


This is my first effort using colour pens, the
image came with a recent cardmaking magazine.
I used a CB paisley embossing folder, some 
ribbon and a Marianne die.

Butterfly Card


I have embroidered the border and butterflies,
added a die cut, some pearls and made the 3d
image. I seem to be making a lot of cards using
green lately, I must be longing for cooler weather.

90th birthday card

Today is my mothers' 90th birthday, quite
a milestone! We celebrated yesterday with 
family at a nearby restaurant. I like to 
personalize special cards with photos. The
photo of my mother was taken in WW2, when
she was in the army, before children, 
grandchildren and great children. During the
week I made her a scrapbook album about her life,
 which was a big hit when I gave it to her at the 
restaurant yesterday.
I made the card with die cuts, SB paper,
paper flowers, ribbon, peel offs  and used a 
MS punch for the border.

Baby Boy

This little man reminds me of my grandson,
a real little climber at a very early age.
 I saw the idea of making this card, in a 
 recent issue of a Dutch magazine. I used a
birdcage die, 3d image, a stripe of rhinestones
and embroidered the border.
