Family Cards including Golden Wedding.

The first is one I did for my sister for one of her grandsons. The sheet was one of Audreys from Lilac garden thought it appropriate as most young men are into cars.

This is for my brother and sister in law who are celebrating their Golden Wedding in November.

And finally one I did for my sister for one of her granddaughters.

I embossed with the Budding vine folder and used one of Nikkys lovely ladies decoupaged.Added MS punched fans on the corners finished with pearls and a brown flower ....

Grandaughters Birthday card

I love those easel cards on top of boxes but my boxes never look good enough so Ive cheated I found some toffees in £1 shop that she loves and the box is perfect.
Her Birthday is Halloween so thanks to Tracey Ive used this picture of a witch playing football as she plays in a local ladies team .Also used the haunted house thanks to Jak.Hope you like it.
