Teddy Bea Horse Champion Birthday Card

Was asked to make this card for my friend for her friend's 30th Birthday. First time I've used a Teddy Bea image. Used the colouring guide in the latest edition of Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine which helped a bit. Used Spellbinders labels die, Forever Friends Party paper and a biege piece of wrapping paper from Paperchase, three types of ribbon some ribbon flowers, peel offs and gems. Coloured with Spectrum Noir pens. At least I get a few pennies for making this one!

Also entered this into the Teddy Bo Challenge - Anything Goes,

also entered into #49 Buttons bows/or bling (must include a die cut)

Hello Cupcake LOTV Card

Here is my finished LOTV Hello Cupcake card - surprised it looks this good as I had a 'mare putting it together! Used backing papers from my stash and also Dovecraft Tea House papers. Ribbon, Dovecraft Tea House ribbon, brads and a few gems. Spellbinders dies used to cut out the image and backing. Not too bad for a first effort using my new Spectrum Noir pens! I hope my work colleague likes it (for her birthday!)

This is for one of my work colleagues that is moving to a new house very soon. Made using a digi stamp from Tiffany Doodles and coloured using Spectrum Noir Pens. Backing papers are from DCWV & free papers from a craft magazine.
