More Birthday Cards

Here are some more birthday cards I made for some of my family throughout the year.

First up is the second card I made for my twin brother.
The first was sent to him whilst he was serving with the Army overseas.
This one was for the family celebrations we had on his return.
There were several birthdays whilst he was away and we just waited and had one big party when he was back in country.

He's an avid fan of fishing and loves to head out when he can get some free time.

This little Ian was just perfect for him.














And, then I also made this card for my brother's partner, Cutie, for her birthday.

She's not a girly-girl and I so struggled with making her a card that wasn't tooo over the top with embellies and the like.
Definitely no fluffy bits, nor kitschy pretty things and definitely no big bows or lace, BUT I did have to bling Anya up with some stickles!!
And a couple of rhinestone brads for the corners.
I couldn't help myself and I definitely couldn't give out a card with absolutely NO bling on it - esp not if it was for another girl!!

Cutie's favourite colour is blue, so I started there and it all came together.

These two are some of the cards I whipped together in a couple of hours, together with the one I made for my niece (see earlier post). My MoJo was definitely my friend that day. :)


Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs, MicheyMoo
