Happy 30th Birthday

Hello Friends
wow!! what a dramatic day for the weather. Don't know about your part of the country or world but its been torrential rain, thunder and lightning here. Our main streets of Blyth are all flooded and closed off. Some of the business's are closed due to the flood water. Luckily for us we are further down the street and on a slope so other than the lights flickering on and off we are okay. 
Hope you are all dry safe and warm wherever you are.

Here are today's 2 cards. The request was for 2 cards for 30 year old twins. I was given free reign and told to just do whatever for them. I only hope that they like them if the lady is able to get here to pick them up!!

this is the first one - this is for Andrew.

Here I used an image I have used previously from the Clipart Fairy. He is called Beer Bear - I have printed him out onto cardstock and matted and layered up some of the digi papers. I printed the wording direct onto the base card using a font called Sandy text 
I added some glamour dust and glossy accents to the beer froth for effect. 

Isn't he cute!! I love the mouse too.

The second card is for Natalie. Now I wasn't too sure whether to go down the flowers and butterflies type style but ending up with a Forever Friends bear image. Here I have matted each layer up ever so slightly to give a decoupage effect but not sure if its not raised enough.

I added glamour dust to the swirls on the end of the bear's scarf and added tiny pink gemstones for sparkle.

I used the brand new papers that came with this months Quick Cards Made Easy magazine. They matched perfectly. I simply cut to size after I again printed the wording direct on the base card using a font called Baabook font which is as close as you can get to the FF font.

thanks for dropping by today. hope you liked what I did today. Although they are quick and printed I hope they will be well received. I just wish I was given more notice for cards sometimes!! 

till next time
hugs to you all
