A double celebration

Thought I would share a couple of cards with you today that I made for my son and his wife who both celebrated their birthdays last Sunday. Unusual to share their birthday but  they don't share the year.
The first one I made for Elizabeth and as you can see she had a "special" birthday to celebrate and celebrate they certainly did over the course of 5 days!
The image is Dreamy Vanessa which I got from Zoe's blog and I coloured her with copics. The papers are basic grey.
This one is Jonathan's and as he loves his real ale I created this topper for him in Craft Artist.
 The name was stamped using the Clarity letter box stamp set which are so useful. The date clock  I created on the computer and the watch and buttons are spellbinder dies. The brads are Bo Bunny.
Thank you for visiting

Love birds for valentines

Well seeing as it's Valentines Day today I thought I would share a couple of creations that seem appropiate for the occasion.
The stamps used on both of these cards I bought from Circa Design. They are photo polymer stamps and give a perfect image every time. I stamped both images onto Fabriano HP water colour card and used my Whisper brush pens for the colouring. I did add a touch of diamond stickles to the flowers on each but as usual it doesn't show on the photos.
I think I am going to have to create myself a new header now that we are well into 2013 don't you?
Well as always thank you for visiting me today, I really do appreciate it.
