A recent birthday card for someone who is going to Disney later this year.
I saw the idea on Pinterest, I've just changed the sentiment.
I think the die is by Tonic and came as part of a set, I didn't particularly like it but wanted the other dies.

A simple thank you card for friends of ours. They invited us round for Sunday lunch recently and asked that we take Fletcher along with us, so nice when people make your dog welcome!

This SU set reminds me of Fletch with his floppy ears :)

First card of 2018

I've used Sue Wilson dies (and copied her card idea). The cocktail glass has an acetate layer that curves round the glass to give a 3D effect.

Merry Christmas

I made this for the lovely lady who grooms our dog.
I wouldn't say Fletcher enjoys being groomed but it's very necessary as he doesn't shed any hair and can soon get matted. About every two months we drop him off for a couple of hours and he always looks very smart afterwards (until a day or so later when he normally finds something to roll in)

Our vet commented recently on what an excellent job the groomer is doing so I thought I'd make her a special card to show our appreciation.
The doggy stamps were a cheap set from China, dies are by Memory Box.

I usually make several different designs of Christmas cards to post out but this year decided to keep things simple.
I made this card and then, rare for me, made quite a few more!

The patterned papers are by Stampin' Up!
It's a white background with foiled snowflakes on one and starbursts/ fireworks on the other.
For some of the cards I kept the white as it was, on the other cards I smooshed Colour Cloud Ink over to change it to lilac.

Some of the cards I used a pearlescent purple layer with silver card and the others I used a rich brown with gold card.

The foil snowflakes are also by SU
Sentiment die is by PTI
