Toy Story never ending card


I have just made a never ending card for my friends daughters birthday on Sunday. Since we have bought her a Toy Story present I thought I would match this by making her a Toy Story card. I have fell in love with this style of card over the last few days as I think they are so much fun to play around with.
Pictures where downloaded from the internet and all papers and embellishments are from my stash. I also used the cricut cartridge alphalicous to do the lettering.
Hope you like it

New cards

I have been busy this weekend and have managed to make 3 cards.
The 1st one is for my sisters birthday on Tuesday and as she is a mad Edward (Twilight) fan I decided to make her this card, I hope she likes it.

This 2nd card I made using my free papers from the 'creative cardmaking' mag i bought last weekend. I fell in love with this card when I saw it in the mag so just had to have a go and this is my take on it.

This last card I made for a friends birthday Yesterday. I made her this card and the photo cube featured in an earlier post this week. The card and image where from my stash and I cut the nestie shape out using make the cut and a file i got from a friend.

Any feedback would be welcomed, come and tell me what you think

New cards

This is a card I have made for my Neice Lizzie who is 7 on Friday. She loves Twilight and just like me she is a total Team Jacob fan, much to her mums disappointment (team Edward lol).

These 2 pics show the inside of my card and I have done a pop out featuring footprints on one 1/2 to represent jacob as his human self and then pawprints on the other for his 'wolf' self.

This card below I made as a favour to a friend of mine as he wanted a golf card. I got the svg file from a friend and then cut the golfer out on the circut. I had trouble with the rest of the files so ended up making the scenary and frame myself to fit.

Hope you like them

Teachers cards/pressies

These are the cards I made for Roslyn's 2 teachers and the boxes to go with them. The boxes just had some toffee's, fudge and eclairs in them. I found the template for the apple on Make The Cut and then cut it with my circut. I think it turned out great.
