Happy Birthday to a Dear Friend

Today is Gayla's birthday. She is a lady with style, lover of monochrome. So choosing the theme for her card was easy peasy, lemon squeezy - my hubby made Gayla a lemon drizzle cake for he is Baker-in-Chief in our home. And Gayla loves lemon cake. Perfect birthday choices, if we say so ourselves!

Here's the card & matching handmade envelope:

Most of the products I used are from the Papermania & DCWV ranges. The yummy swirly diamonds were from ... my local ... cheap shop ... coming in at 4x this amount for ... £0.99 - imagine!

However, centre stage at Gayla's home today (and many after) will be this boxed card, from the man in her life (made by moi):

Many crafters will recognise this La Pashe 'Sweethearts' image (link takes you to download page). Printed from the CD-rom collection, these papers are always a joy to work with - thanks to Jak Heath!
And can you spot that gorgeous Prima flower? Because you're worth it, Gayla!

Happy Birthday Grandson #5

My husband's youngest grandson is (am writing late in the day so nearly was) 7 today. I made a bright card for a bright and sunny lad, with a nod to football in the Jolly Nation badge, suitably customised with a peel-off sticker.

The papers came from Creative Cardmaking Magazine (I think!), & the spotted 12x12" paper for the envelope was from my craft stocks.
