Cards for Bestest Friends!

HI all! Last week was especially busy for me as two of my very dear friends celebrated birthdays so I had a few special cards to make.

This one is for my dear friend Linzi who is also my partner in crime in photography class and scrapbooking!  She loves trees, she loves pink and she loves bling so I thought that this card would be good for her.

and a close up to show you the bling

We went out for lunch last Friday to celebrate her birthday and she loved her card and pressie so I was chuffed. The stamp is from Kanban and was used on the card on my previous post. Sentiment was done on the computer and the card was printed on with a wash colour from Pink Petticoat.

My other dear friend Manisha celebrated her birthday on Sunday and her husband also asked me to make a card for him to give to her (I think she told him too!) So I had two cards to make for her. 

From her husband I made this one with the three dimensional butterfly punch on pearlised card and with some beautiful indian paper underneath and of course some bling.

I then made this one from me as I wanted it to be completely different from her hubby's one.

The paper is Lotus by Amy Butler from K & Co. I rarely use my designer papers as I tend to spend most of my time stroking them, you know what I mean! But well she is a good friend so I decided  to break one sheet loose from the packet. The flower is from Prima.

The kids have one more week at school until half term and I can't wait as its also my birthday that week and hubby and I are going away for a couple of days. I hope that you are all having a wonderful week!

Hi Tracey, I just love that tree stamp - the cards for your friends are gorgeous - they must both have been so happy and delighted - do you find it hard and more pressure to make a card for another cardmaker/crafter...? I do as I think they have a critical eye for detail!!! Well done anyway - they all definately make the mark!

I'm right with you on the paper issue, it takes me ages to pluck up the courage to cut up pretty paper lol
