2sketches4you no9 and man's 40th birthday card

Had a couple of commissions this week.

Was inspired by the sketch on 2sketches4you, it was just perfect! I really enjoyed making this with all the little details.

Thanks for all the lovely comments you have left, I really enjoy reading them, and I do try my best to visit your blogs.

Ingredients:
Paper by Anna Griffin, Prima flowers, stamps by Hero Arts and Hampton Art, Fiskars threading water punch, Xcut label punch, lace, thread, sequin, pearl pin and gingham heart from stash.

The same client wanted a man's fortieth card. I was a bit stumped for a bit, but using the Craft Robo helped for the big `40th'. Decorated the inside to make it extra special, and used some Quickutz swirls my sister had sent me last week, thanks est!


Ingredients:
Paper by HOTP, stamp by Hero Arts, 40th cut by Craft Robo, Quickutz scrolls, ribbon from stash.

These both rock! Love the soft and pretty look of the 2 sketches card, and I'm always looking for masculine card ideas. :D

Both cards are lovely, but the 2s4y card really is the best. Love all the blue and the sweetness of it.

Thank you for your comments. Yes, I will be wise. The things I buy will have to be functional as I am on a tight budget right now. That's why I'm looking to swap things that I don't use for things that I can use. God bless you.
Big hug.
