Eleven cards...

An order for 11 cards, which had to include one for a little girl who loves pink :)

The photo's aren't too good as I took them in artificial light, but I need to get them mailed out today! I've used some of the lovely hand-coloured papers that Julie sent me the other month on some of these. Thanks, Julie!! They are gorgeous, and great fun to use. If you have another clear out any time...... :)

-this snowman card and the cat card below have some of Julie's papers in the background. On the cat one I've tried a bit of decoupage :)
All the pictures are stamped and then I've used Derwent Water-Colour pencils....
I love this "House Mouse" image.
I wonder if they will notice how I drew the mousie's ears into the shadow :)

More of Julie's paper on these next 3....
Hope the recipient likes them!!!


Secret Santa Cards...

I am sending these out this week! A few people didn't manage to get theirs done after all but never mind, I'm making a few extra so that no one misses out. Once they 're all winging their way I'll put photo's of them all on here.

Helena, those cards are just so beautiful! I love the shimmery papers and the sweet little animals, especially the kitty. (of course) :)
It's so great that you are sharing your talents this way.
The video of the doggie is just adorable. It did make me smile!
Hugs,
Lorianna

You are making some very nice cards. I don't know if they will notice mousie's ears in the shadow but it adds to the overall look of the card.
