Husband's Valentine's Day card

Well I decided to make my husband a Valentine's Day card.
I made one but could not decide whether I liked it not.
Most of the products I used were from Crafter's Companion, except
For the banner dies which is from Creative Expressions.
The 1st card I made was using products from the Crafter's Companion issue 13 cd rom and the idea for Iris folding.

This 2nd card I made I used red mirro card and used Sara's love and romance Signature range. I have decided that I like them both so husband will have to get them both now lol. Hope you have a fab day xx

2 birthday cards for my son

Well it's my son's 20th birthday on Sunday, so I decided to make him a card. Unfortunately I made one then another idea popped into my head so in the end I have made him two haha.

The 1st one is made with Pollyanna's Walk in the wild paper kit, using the wolf image.

I used white card and black card from creative crafting world. Backing paper and large decoupage image from the paper kit. 
The flourish and birthday sentiment and son is from Crafter's Companion website. 

The 2nd card I made 

I used white card stock and made it into a pop up card.

Black card to make it pop.
I used Sheena Douglas's a little bit sketchy shout stamp set,
I stamped the images and used Tim Holtz distress ink, Faded Jeans and inked the edges.
I used Sara's male signature range dies
The stars and also the guitar, and the happy birthday sentiment. And the son die is from the only words die'sire die.

Everything I have used on these two cards are available from

Hope you all have a fab weekend.

Special 60th birthday card

My neighbour turned 60 last week and she invited myself and my husband to her birthday party.
So I decided to make her a card.
I am so loving creative expressions dies 

I decided to go into spring mode and used yellow pearlised card by crafters companion, I used a rose embossing folder in the die'sire range. Also the wor dies as well as the numbers.
I used 2 different coloured yellow ribbon.
The yellow sentiment is a stamp which Jonathon Lockwood designed, and I stamped it with Tim Holtz distress ink,
I used dew drops from my old stash.
