Birthday cards for my niece's 4th birthday

This card was created using various papers from my stash, ribbon and stanps from cardmaking and papercraft magazine and coloured using promarkers.  I am really pleased with how this turned out and hope she likes it too!  This card is entered in the following challenge: Fortnightly Challenge 54 - Use Ribbon or Lace

This one was made using the same paper stack and rubber stamps from the same set from cardmaking and papercraft magazine.  Also coloured with promarkers and clear gems added to both cards.

First christmas card of the year

made using tatty teddy papers, a stamp that was free with October's "Cardmaking and Papercraft" magazine and sentiments from the same issue, and promarkers to colour.  I enjoyed making this today with my little girl and felt very festive.

Thank you card

So my Mam is in hospital at the moment and I thought I would make a card to say thank you to all the staff who are looking after her.  I used papers and stamps which were a free gift on "Cardmaking and Papercraft" magazine and also chipboard pieces from the same magazine.  The stamped image is coloured using promarkers

Mothers day card

I thought that I would try out a different style of card and I have to say I love it! I used a topper bought from Hobbycraft, peel off stickers from good old Tesco and papers from a Forever Friends "Hugs and cuddles" stack. I love this card and hope you do too!

I think this needs a better photo
