Brothers birthday made these two cards for my brothers birthdays, they share the same birthday but there is 6 years difference both being  born in the 50's and played these games in the days when there were no computers or game consuls  --there is always a lot of ribbing going on as to who's Birthday it is on the day--lol !

You can download the free sheets i used and more on Vince Ballards blog ----
 I think Vince is very talented, i love his ideas ! I hope i have done his images justice -- my brothers loved the cards i made for them, hope you like them  !

I love cupcakes --who doesn't ! --  just the look of them makes my mouth water --lol !

I coloured this image with Sakura pens using water and a paint brush, this way the ink isn't so heavy. I added a nice red gem for the cherry and a bow to finish it off !

Hope you like it !

Unusual Silver Wedding card !

This card is not the traditional silver wedding card but the person its for is quite young and likes cutie type cards so i came up with this one, hope you like it !


I coloured the image with my new Promarkers ---just learning so nothing complicated,  i added some Glamour dust which adds some sparkle and a ribbon to finish it off. The message was embossed in Silver --had to have something silver on it !

Wedding card !

The image on this card was painted at a class i went to with Promarkers,  i used some glamour dust to add a bit extra sparkle which doesn't show up very well in the pic. I used the Cuttlebug hearts folder down the centre but as it was an A5 card it wouldn't go through the Cuttlebug the right way, i had to mount the two pieces of embossed card down the centre and join it secretly underneath the image ---what we have to do -lol!

The ribbon idea came from a bought card --- i punched a hole at the top and slotted a doubled piece of ribbon and then slotted it underneath the fold on the other side ---if you can understand that !!

Hope you like it !
