Three cards ...

... all are A5. One of the "Thinking of You" cards is for my Dad and is made using an image and background paper from Joanna Sheen's American Frontier CD - I have decoupaged the Native American with one layer. Finished off with an image of beadwork, a feather and peel-offs. The other "Thinking of You" card is made using an image and background paper from Jayne Netley Mayhew's CD from Joanna Sheen, and the cat has been decoupaged as well. This card is for my Aunt. It is finished off with an organza ribbon, gems and peel-offs. The final card is for a friend, who kindly did something very special - so I made the Art Deco card with an image and background taken from the Creative Cards Plus CD. Again this has been decoupaged with layers of the same image, finished off with a feather, 3 gems, a ribbon from the CD and peel-offs. Thanks for popping by. (Apologies for photos ... having to use flash!)

Tess Brag Book ...

... not quite completed ... Tess got the 'ump (as did Zoe before her!) because I was using my Wizard die cutting machine. I used the Wizard to cut the photos and the letters. The photos chart her progress with us so far ... the first picture is the day we got her, and the last picture is the most recent. I hope that you can see how she has changed ... and hopefully for the better. Thanks for looking.
