SOME RECENT CARD COMMISSIONS

Good morning Peeps,
I am here with some recent card commission.
A friend was recently 80 years old and still doing decorating on his house even after falling off a ladder last year and breaking his hip !!!!
I saw him a few days before his birthday and scolded him for doing it after I had been told he had been up a ladder painting his chimney !   I mean ..... REALLY !!!

Anyhoo - naturally I made most of his cards this year with a decorating theme using a fabulous image I bought from DOCTOR DIGI  - Dunderton Decorators - which was just perfect.  They made perfect images for men which is so useful as I often struggle with Male cards :-D
Whilst shopping, I saw a card on the Dr Digi shop site which gave me inspiration so I CASE'd it LoL  
Here is my version.



I used Kraft paper for the background and printed some rose pattern for the ' wall paper ' . All the images were coloured with Spectrum Noir markers and then fussy cut and layered.



For this one, I used the same image but cut out only his head and hands to add to a ' Wing Suit '. The person who ordered this card made a joke about him being safer with a Wing Suit, so that's what I made for her card.



This Birthday Boy and his lovely wife also feed lots of stray Greek cats around their house and there are always more sneaking up. This card was decoupaged into 4 layers with all the cats. As he is 80 I put that on the front and the joke inside says  .... " Is that your age or the number of Cats ? "

Thank you very much for popping in xxx

  7. All perfect cards for your friend to enjoy. Especially love the kitty card. My daughter and her family regularly holiday in the Greek islands and she jokingly says she has to frisk my Grsndson before they get on the plane to come home as he makes friends with all the stray cats around the hotels. Hugs Mrs A.
