For the neighbour

Hi all, this card was partly inspired by a card from Kristina Werner, now this lady has talent and I love watching her creations.

The inspiration of the card came from using a whole lot of different pattern and basic paper for the background, with the simplicity of the Tattered Teddies with their message. I found this image on the internet, printed it and used a black marker to highlight the edges and some shading of the bears, brightened up the noses, and added a pop of colour to the holly and berries and the cracker to tie in with the background colours.
We gave this card to our neighbour for Christmas, when we found out he was going to be alone on Christmas day.
 Everybody could do with some Tatty Teddy bear love.

A second order?

Well as the title says, the same friend that had the first order, asked me if I could make a couple more cards, this would be for a Christian Christmas card and a sympathy card.

Inspired by The Alley Way Stamps

First order

So a very kind friend of mine decided to help me out with a business adventure I was going to start, of course that would be handmade cards by me. I was asked to make some Christmas cards for her Husband, Son and Daughter, this is what I came up with.

For the Husband
For the Son, who loves Koalas
For the Daughter, this is her
dog BOB.
They were very well received by all family members.
