Snow White and Betty Boop!!!

I have been playing about with these this morning, a change from christmas cards, and a welcome change if you ask me...lol...they are for 2 birthdays coming up, one 50th and one 60th...I got the images off the internet and used them as decoupage... the little parcel on the snow white card opens up to reveal a birthday cake....someone sent it to me and I am very greatful for itas I think it finishes off this card nicely...
The Betty Boop card is for someone who is young at heart, and lets face it who wouldn't want to be betty boop at 50...

I thought I'd have a change of shape when I made these, they open in the middle....the fronts are layered to make them stand out...something different for me to try...I need to do a couple more now....and I decorated the insides...but I still have to find the right verse to put in them..

This is my snowflake card, inside and out...lol...

My modern take on the traditional Nativity Cards...

Apologies to Jackie from Jackie's Crafts..

Jackie so very kindly sent me the award below as well and I forgot to put her name on the thankyou...I'm really sorry Jackie and thankyou ever so much for the award...it was so kind of you..xxx

My latest cards and some snowflakes

I lost my mojo for a short while due to some very sad news in the family and all the trials and tribulations that come with it and are still on going....but it is slowly starting to come back and here are some of my makes , the cards aren't what I'd usually do but I thought I'd have a change...the snowflakes or stars , it depends on how you want to look at them are made from beads and wire, very simple really.......and I think they will look nice hanging from a tree or perhaps in a window on some ribbon....must remember to attatch some ribbon...
I'm really looking foward to the Crafts Beautiful Christmas online party now at the end of the month....and i hope to see you all there...

Latest News..

Last night I did my first christmas craft evening of the year, it went quite well, not as many people came as I had hoped but I sold quite a lot of stuff.....but how many of you find that people expect things for nothing....they don't seem to appreciate how much time and hard work goes into your creations.....

I had an order this week for 60 birthday invites, they had to be done quickly ,so this is what I made, very sparkly with fairys and stars....the lady I made them for was very pleased with them..
