Hello 2012, ive been a bit absent lately

Morning everyone, i have been a very poor blogger of late as I got snowed under with all my xmas Tea light orders that I just never got around to blogging any of my pictures or cards. I am all caught up now so thought I would show you a few of the cards I have made for orders over the past few weeks.

I was asked to commission a card for a friends little boy who was 5 on Xmas day. He loves Superman and Spiderman so I made these 2 cards. I apologise the pictures arent great as I took them at night.
The Superman badge is a google image that I resized in my craft studio and printed out a number of times ( it was a black and white image) I coloured it in using my promarkers and decoupaged the image. I used cricut cart Alphalicious for the number and the words, and my craft studio for the sentiment.

I used make the cut with my cricut to cut out the 'web'. The spiderman image is just from google and resized etc in my craft studio. I used my cricut cart alphalicious to cut the '5' and the 'brother'.

I was also asked for a cute ladies card for an 80th birthday and this is what I came up with, it needed to be quick as the lady only ordered it the day before she needed it so I used my A4 card kit from the Me to You collection to make the above card. I used letter stickers and flowers from my stash to add the extra detail, and the alphalicious cart for the numbers.

I get asked alot to make these types of cards for men usually and I do enjoy making them. One of my regular customers asked me for 2 Everton cards as you can see but because they where for the same customer I tried to make them slightly different whilst sticking to the same theme.
I used a google image in my craft studio and printed it out several times so I could decoupage the image. I used my craft studio again for the sentiments and then (am sure you can guess whats coming next lol)  I used my cricut cart Alphalicious for the number and word. I also created the backing paper for the insides using my craft studio and tiled the image.

Thanks for looking if you got this far, any feedback is always greatly received.
