Ni Hao Kai Lan

I believe this character is from a Canadian/American children's television show. I do not know it myselfy, I must admit, but found the colouring page on the Colouring Book website and thought the image was gorgeous. Plus it reminds me of the girl the birthday card is for - my friend's daughter, Lisa, who turned 8 on Saturday - so cute! Anyhow, that was my main reason to use it; coloured with Letraset Promarkers, as usual. Hope you like it.

That's all for me for the moment. Hope you enjoy the rest of the Bank Holiday.

Hello Kitty

This card is for my friend's little 3 year old daughter. I kept it very CAS, and used the striking pink colour as a main point of focus. The cute Hello Kitty image is a colouring page from the Colouring Book; I used Letraset Promarkers (Carmine and Ruby mostly) to colour it; the sentiment is computer generated.

Just Married

Here's a last minute request for a wedding card. I have used a similar layout and papers from the same collection before (Spring stack, DCWV), and it was a success, so I thought I would repeat it, since time was limited.
Hope you like it.
Are you enjoying the Bank holiday weekend? It's nice to have a bit of family time, isn't it?
There is a bit of peace and quite in the house at the moment so I might be able to post a couple of cards more... :-)

And the second card for today was made for an older neighbour, who, to be honest, I am not sure is turning 8 or 9 this week! LOL! Anyhow, he is having a party at the weekend to which, naturally, my son has been invited (did I not tell you that there were a lot of social events for my children?!) I used a Polly Pocket colouring image and Dymo labels to give the card a "cool" look. Hope you like it.
Entering this card onto the Sentimental Sundays challenge - Cards for kids
I need to make a couple of more cards this week, all for children's friends, so I'd better put my thinking cap on. At the moment children's cards is all I seem to be making, and when the mojo is not exactly at its brightest point, it feels rather difficult :-(

Happy 4th!

Another card for another young neighbour of ours. Josh turned 4 on Saturday and he had a nice party to celebrate it. (Somebody told me once that my children's social life would be better than mine from a very early stage, and gosh! it is soooo true! My son has birthday parties and playdates every second day... when was the last time that I attended a party??!!)
The image is by Cr8H - cute clown, isn't he? Papers from PaperCraft Inspirations; bunting from Torico; sentiments computer generated.

My friend Snehal just suggested to enter this card to Sentimental Sundays since it a Card for a kid. Thanks, Snehal!

1st of May already!! Just in case I am not around much, have a nice month ;-) I do hope that May brings more sunshine and warmer temperatures by my neck of the woods. I am so sick of rain and cold weather! :-(

Oh, and I am still struggling with the new Blogger interface, still "blind typing" and seeing only half of the screen. I will try with my laptop later, see if it is a problem with the PC....
