Girl and Squirrel Birthday card (The Paper Shelter image)

Hi everyone,

This is my last card of the day and it's very different from all the others as it has more of a shabby chic feel. I have used a beautiful image from The Paper Shelter, isn't it a lovely scene? The fence is from FWAB who are having a 50% off sale and for those overseas this means huge savings as our Aussie dollar is also down so you get our beautiful products for next to nothing but only for this month (see below for more details).

Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage!

Winter Girl's Birthday Card (Bugaboo image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have loved reading the lovely comments you leave me and I love to hear when you buy an image because you have seen it on one of my cards, that always makes me so happy, just wanted you to know.

This little cutie is by Bugaboo. I added some die cut snowflakes, ribbon & my snowdrop specialty (some clear glue and clear fine glitter). Oh dear, I have just realised I have mistaken her ear for part of her hat hehe, my bad, will fix that.

Paul's CAS Birthday Card (Kenny K image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have created this card for my sister's partner using an image from Kenny K. I love this image as it suits so many males I know haha (they all love a beer don't they?). Although we're in Oz, he supports the USA's Green Bay Packers so I looked up their colours hence the colour combo (gosh I hope I got it right, anyone know hehe?) I think he'll appreciate that I went to the effort of doing it in his favourite teams colours if they're right.

Bright and Crisp Birthday Girl Card (The Greeting Farm image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Wow, I can't believe I've posted 6 cards tonight! That's a record for me I think. Well, this is the last one and I really like how this card turned out. I'm not really a clean and crisp kind of crafter so this is about as clean and simple as I get hehe. I have used a gorgeously girly image from The Greeting Farm, I have created cards with her a few times in the past but not for quite some time so thought she was due for another showing. She is a rubber stamp.

Make a Wish Monster card (Bugaboo image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

This could be a girl's card but I think it totally rocks as a boy's card. I love using Bugaboo images and this one is no exception, how cute are these little monsters, they're ready to party alright! I cut out the sentiment and foam taped it to give it depth.

Pirate Boy card (DigiStamp Boutique image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Have you seen my other boyish cards tonight? This one is my 3rd, very unusual for me I know. One of my fave digi shops for boys images has got to be DigiStamp Boutique and that is exactly where this one came from, how cute is he? I have used this image before but with pirate papers and dark colours so I have it under this one so you can see the difference. I think he looks cute both ways. I thought this image was perfect to go with the waves on the Bo Bunny papers so once I had coloured the image it was a pretty easy card to create.
