one of the boxes for the 1 year olds cards
2 communion cards I made today with 2 different images from Kathryn Andrews fincher
her images are very evocative of days gone by
glittered everything with glamour dust

thought it was going to be sunny today but rather dull now here in kilcoole.
thank god the 5 cards for the 1year old have just been collected actually glad to see the back of them.
Frank came home from work last night with a request for a card for a colleague's wife (india, tennis, computers and husband home alone minding kids) that was the brief as written  found out later wife goes to India  to set up call centres and he wanted a card "1 step up from tescoes"
Well I showed him and have charged him way above tesco prices serve him right!

easel card for the 1 year old I love this image of vintage bears

just adore graphic 45 papers at the moment this is from the once upon a springtime  range
 and just added a big gold bow and a couple of die cut  flourishes.
decoupaged some of the flowers on one of the pages.
