Elmo the Emu!

Hi Everyone, my card today is for my Godson's Son, if that makes sense? I know he won't pick up the 3D gloss is a little rough around the beak!

Elmo the Emu Limited Runs
DP's by Summertime Designs, no longer available, sadly.
sentiment, he's an Emu and I hope the birthday will be amazing?
My thinking anyway LOL.
Emu and background and sentiment 3D'd
3D gloss on eyes and beak.

Thought I would show you half of my birthday cake which was absolutely scrumptious! Hubby had it brought out after a meal with family and friends, such a surprise day for me, although it was a couple of weeks ago, I'm still enjoying all I had and was done for me.

Here's the dozen red roses he bought, as well as arranging everything in secret.

Spring Card

Hi Everyone, I tried doing something and it worked!!

Image and sentiment by Paulette at Create with TLC 

First I added a gradient to the print image in PS, then I
 used the Spring sentiment and printed it onto vellum, 
I decided to emboss the back of the image,
 it turned out quite well, I think next time I will make the print a
 shade or two lighter, but I am pleased with how this turned out.
Both layers layered onto the card and then a couple of gems to finish.

Another make with my SiL, while she was visiting and we "played".
She had sent me a photo of my #3 Brother, after seeing me add a front image to a
 T shirt for my eldest Brother, a few days before they came to visit.
I didn't manage to get a photo of the eldest wearing his shirt, but #3 Brother loved his and wore it as soon as he had it LOL. Here are the 2 I did.

I added a gradient to the old photos, added text around the photo, printed them onto heat transfer paper, then ironed them onto the T shirt.

eldest was 29 here, he is now 81!

#3 brother at 12 years old
Here he is at 77, starting my birthday celebrations off!

I also added this original layout to the Digital Whisper blog

When I had my birthday my Brother & Sil came for a few days and as she and I are "into" cards and the Cameo, we "play" whenever they visit, SiL and I learn from each other and this time it was about the Cameo. We did quite a few things and I shall add them when I remember LOL.

Here is a votive candle holder that I etched with
 a vinyl stencil cut out on
the Cameo and the effect when lit.

Spring Window

Hi Everyone, My card today is for the Outlawz Progressive Challenge. Such a pretty image to work with.

I digitally coloured the image by Beccy with colours from -
DP's and beads scatter by NibblesScribbles
I'm owning up to the top DP torn digitally, but then cut by hand.
Brick overlay by DigiDewi, I saw a card
using similar, and thought I would case it.
I found the sentiment online.
Added Tonic Pearl Drops to each flower centre
