Army birthday card /Band of brothers

hello friends.
hope you are all keeping well.

Today's card is the last one for the family with 3 birthdays all on the same day. 
I hope you like this card in particular as its one specially drawn by my husband Davey.
The recipient is in the army and I chose this image cos I thought it was stunning. but I am biased LOL

The sentiment was printed directly on the base card using a camouflage style font to match in with the theme.

I kept it in black and white as I felt this was more striking.

Here is a close up of the drawing.

I matted it onto black card stock and then silver mirri card. Here is another close up without the black and silver card. And slightly lightened up.

I do hope you like this card. I hope the card was well liked.

Well it must have been an amazing time in the family with a 60th and 40th and a 21st birthday all on the same day. What a party time they had.

hope to see you all again very soon with another card.
Until then - take care

Happy 60th Birthday dear Brother

hello friends
hope you are all keeping well. wow its Friday again. where has the week gone to?
don't know about you but these weeks are flying past.

Here is today's card. This was another commission card for the same lady who requested the NUFC card yesterday. 
This was for the brother who was 60 on the same day as the nephew card yesterday.
this gentleman liked gardening and vegetables so I thought this FF image was perfect for him.

Again the details were printed direct onto the card base itself using a font called Marita text. I think its similar to the actual Forever Friends font.

I slightly decoupaged the basket, his arms  and his hat and added some glossy accents to the carrots.

I do hope he liked it. I haven't heard back yet but I hope they all liked their cards. Must have been an amazing day in that family.

hope to see you all again tomorrow. 
hugs to you

Newcastle United birthday card (21st birthday)

hello friends.

today's card is a commission card requested for a big Newcastle United fan. Not only is it the 21st birthday of the grandson, but also the brother and the nephew. All on the same day - that would be an amazing party!! I have made all 3 cards but I am showing this card today.

I have used the NUFC badge itself as the main image and using the PC created black and white stripes down the side of the card.

The wording is direct from the PC using a font called Bernhard Modern. I personalised it as requested.

Hope you like today's card - come back tomorrow to see what I did for the other family member's cards.

hugs to you all

baby girl card

hello everyone.
wow - what a foggy day. its so weird outside. don't know about where you are but here in Northumberland its very hazy.

Here is today's card. This is a special personalised card for a new baby girl. 

This is an 8" square card. I have printed the background out onto Rymans smooth card and added the sentiment at the same time. I used the Forever Friends triple CD to make the background and using a font called Papyrus added the details in a pink font to match.

The border was printed out again from the CD and matted onto pink card. I added some glitter to the bears shoes for sparkle and added little gingham buttons for effect in the corners.

Thanks for dropping by again today. tomorrow i have another card to show you so please drop by again.

hugs to you all for your support.
