The first is for our friend Syd who loves the wildlife programmes so thought this tiger would do the trick...Made the happy birthday greeting with the MS Punch...

The Second is for Geoff and as he has a citreon car thought one of the wacky wheels
would do the trick. Found some oil on water red card embossed some gold with the happy birthday cuttlebug and here you go......

This snowman appealed to me

This is a free digi stamp image from imag-e-nation and he appealed to me so had a play.
the base card is white and although it doesnt photo very well it is embossed with the sizzix merry christmas folder. Then embossed with the cuttlebug stars on a nice bright blue embossed the snowman image with the dots folder and used some glitter on him giving him a nice orange nose with a thick paint. Added some of the new glitter stars peel offs top and bottom. Thanks for having a look at him....
