Just some cards ....

...... for celebrations during the month of May in our family .......

Tammi's birthday is tomorrow and she is as delicate as a Faerie! The image is from Dover Publications (lovely free stuff) printed on a transparency and coloured with Copics. For the background I used a patterned paper from Crafty Individuals, spread a layer of Bostik Art and Craft White Glue and then put just a single layer of Kleenex white tissue over. It softened the background even more. The purple and yellow minute bits are a no name brand. I don't even know how to describe them but they worked perfectly for what I wanted.

I got the idea from Christina Please pay her a visit as she really has some great ideas and inspiration to kick start when Mojo goes walkies, without a GPS! Mother's Day is on the 8th here in South Africa and I think in the USA! No special papers, just ordinary white card and flowers from my stash. Hope Mom likes it!

Men are difficult blighters! I gave Dallas's card a touch of the Feminine with the ribbon bits! Wonder if he'll notice? The papers are all from Basic Grey. The label sticker is also BG.
The 31 and his name are foam cut outs, (another no name brand) coloured with Color Box. His birthday is on the 13th and he's none too happy about turning 31. He reckons he's getting old LOL

Yes, I have been MIA for quite some time, oops! I have been making cards but either my scanner goes to the 'I don't want to work today' or my camera doesn't want to function or the day is too dull. No happy medium, (except papers and paint and inks and ribbons and flowers and bits and bobs)

Take care everyone.
