card for a 2 year old

I made this card for my great niece who was 2 on the 20th of September. The design was inspired by one that Jayne Nestorenko had done using her Cute Companion stamps. I stamped the numbers and characters using black versafine and colored them, using inktense pencils. The words happy birthday were stamped with versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder.
My grandaughter is still having chemo and has now lost all of her hair. Her daddy has shaved his head too, to make her feel a bit better. Please keep her in your thoughts and hope that we have a positive outcome.

Thankyou for looking.

Harvest Dance

Good Morning fellow bloggers, I am sorry that I have not posted for a long time, but as some of you will already know, our three year old Granddaughter was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour and has undergone major surgery. She is now having chemo therapy to attack the cancer cells that have migrated to her spine. Please keep her in your thoughts and hope that we have a positive outcome.

I made this card for a friend of mine, who loves nature and this digital stamp by mo's digital pencil, fitted the bill perfectly. I coloured the image with promarkers and swiped the edges with distressed ink. The backing paper and insert is from the new Essence of Nature cd rom by Artylicious. This was matted onto rust coloured card. The only embellishment for this one was a wrapping of gold ribbon.
I made another card for my other friend which was a concertina card, but I forgot to photograph it, so I will have to make another one to show.
Thankyou for looking.
