Birthday cards for some little people...

My friend asked me to make her some cards for her grandchildren.  The twins, Odin and Sophie, are turning 5 on  the 28th and are having a Pirate and Fairy party so she asked that the cards be one of each!  Plus her son's god-daughter turns 5 as well, so she wanted a "girly" card.

I made that one first...


I found some PP in my drawer that already had the lovely cup cake on it so that was my starting point.  I then chose a really old Hero Arts set that had this little cutie on it.  I stamped and coloured her and then fussy cut.  I cut down the panel and mounted it on some pinky/purple card.  I used the same colour to die cut the Kaisercraft number die.  Added some Crackle Accent for dimension. 

Next one was for Odin.  I had a Mo Manning Captain Hugh which I thought would be perfect


I used Copics to colour then fussy cut.  I found the treasure map on Google and printed it onto some lined kraft paper.  The sentiment is one from Hero Arts .

And for my Fairy card for Sophie, I used one of The Greeting Farm fairies.


Some more Copic colouring and fussy cutting together with some more PP.  I added Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to the wings and the cupcakes plus Glossy Accents to the hearts. 

I'm now trying to get ahead with some of my DT work as I'm away from the 8th to the 13th March.  I'm catching up with my family in Australia.  We are having a bit of a reunion on the Sunshine Coast.  Daughter, Son-in-law and wee Archie are coming across from Perth, my parents are traveling up from the Gold Coast and my son and his girlfriend are traveling with Hubby and I .  So looking forward to catching up.  Archie is now 10 months so it's been 6 months since I've seen him.  He'll have grown soooo much.  We get almost daily photos and videos of him, but to cuddle him for real is going to be so special.  Can't wait!!!!

Have an awesome weekend all
