Happy Birthday Thomas!

Happy Fourth Birthday to Thomas.
I used a DigiStamp Boutique image on the card and if you look closely there are four buttons and four gems ;-)

With Sympathy

I have shied away from making 'with sympathy' cards for years.  There have been occasions (of course) when perhaps I should have sent one, but I just couldn't put that sentiment on the card- it usually ended up being a 'thinking of you' or 'best wishes'/'with love' card.
Recently someone suggested making these cards at random times and having a few in stock- that way you don't have to make them when you are mourning the loss of someone.  I thought I would give it a go. This is a simple card with brush stroke lettering (Digi Stamp Boutique) and handmade flowers.

I know someone who likes to send cards to her friends with the sentiment 'hugs' on the front.  I guess it is quite a good 'cover all bases' greeting.  I made these two cards using stamped images I found in my drawer...

Cute mice getting married?  What else can be better for a one-of-a-kind wedding card?

We Three Kings

I know everyone else did 'Christmas in July' to get them kick started with Christmas crafting... I'm a bit late but I printed off some images from a set I bought last year from DigiStamp Boutique but didn't get round to using.
 I love these sets as you can arrange the images how you like to make little 'scenes' :-)

Cutie Pie

A while since I have made a baby card and I thought it is always good to have one in stock (Mum asks for them at random occasions, when I didn't even know someone had been pregnant).  This one uses a DigiStamp Boutique image.
