More Birthdays and Others

Hi everyone, thanks for popping by today but please keep a safe distance as I've got an absolute stinker of a cold. I've got a few more cards to show you today and will keep it short and sweet (hopefully)


First off a card for the Passion for Promarkers special anniversary challenge where the theme is 'anything goes'. I used my trusty Promarkers to colour the image and added a sentiment from Uniko 'birthday sentiments' stamp set.




 And following on with another birthday card this time for a male, using Uniko 'background builders round in circles' and 'simply said birthday'


I'm entering this in the following challenges

Uniko Studio 'anything goes + optional twist masculine'



Allsorts 10th birthday challenge 'happy birthday'





I've used one of the Uniko May new release stamps 'background blocks modern mid century II' for my next card. It would be a great stamp for those hard to make male cards but I stamped it in pink as I wanted a softer feminine look and after matting it onto some coffee coloured card I added a couple of die-cuts to finish.


This is for the challenges at

Penny Black and More 'all things feminine with anything goes option'

Inkspirational 'gold dipped'  (the thanks is die-cut from gold card)




And to finish with something different, here's a card with no stamping at all. I embossed the card front and added a LOTV topper along with some ribbon, flowers and gems. This will have a pocket added to the inside so that it can contain a gift card or money.


This is for the Unstampabelles challenge 'to have and to hold - twist art deco style'


Wow, you managed to make it through to the end and hopefully without catching my germs. Thanks so much for popping by and for taking the time to leave such lovely comments, I really appreciate it. I'm off now to grab another box of tissues and have a nice bowl of chicken soup and if I can stop sneezing long enough I may just have a crafty play later.
