cards for men

special card - engagement, wedding, invitation - can be used for lots of occassions.
I enjoyed doing these 'male' cards. I enjoyed doing the green shirt one, and think that the black and white one would be great for a graduation, or even a 'card to the groom' - the white oval on the right would have a sentiment stamped on it.
All 3 cards are quite quick to make. hope you enjoy them.

Easter treats for daughter

Have made these Easter treats for my daughter overseas. They are from the Close to my Heart treat tubes. Have put some tiny Easter eggs in them with a tiny chicken. Have used paua paper to decorate and also popped some NZ kiwi stickers on as she was feeling a wee bit homesick. Again those 'critter' cartridges are in my Cricut!! just absolutely love them.

Easter Treats for Grandson

Easter treats for my grandson who is overseas:

 I used the 'treat tubes' from 'Close to my Heart' and put 3 little easter eggs and a tiny chick in each tube. Again using the 'critter' cartridge for the birdie (looks close enough to a chicken!) on the front. On the back I have attached packs of Liquorish as my grandson LOVES it and cannot get it where he is living at the moment.
had to add a couple of wee stickers just to remind him that he is still a New Zealander!!

Young lady's birthday party

For a young lady's 12th birthday party she wanted to have her friend 'make a card'. She looked at some of mine and decided that she would have them make a 'pop-up' card. 14 young ladies came to make their cards and what fun it was. They were very good and did some excellent crafting. I had the pieces cut out, they 'sponged' the sky and decorated the pieces, putting the bag and shoes together and making the pop-up.

these are two of their cards. well done girls.
