Calypso Butterflies

Hi folks,

Just thought I should pop in and share the card I made for my Mom's birthday. She likes butterflies so I thought that I would put butterflies on her card this year.

First Love, First Hero

Hi folks,

I'm a little late sharing this year's Father's Day cards but I promise to share them over the next few days.

Up first is the card I made for my Dad.




Simple, no fuss. I think this could also work as a birthday card - or just because.

A Magical 50th Birthday

Hi folks,

Just popping in to share the cards I made for my cousin's 50th birthday celebration.

Up first - an explosion box card. This was my first time making one of these and I was pleased with how it turned out.




It folks flat and fits into a 6 x 6 envelope. I think this sort of thing would make an awesome cake topper, don't you?

And this is the matching regular card I made to go with it - so I could have somewhere to write a birthday greeting.
