Son and Daughter-in-Law at Christmas

Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)

Ephesians 6:2

This is a card made for my Godmother to give her son.  She can’t get out to buy a card now and her son is wonderful to her.  I made the sentiment myself and the backing paper with the couple ia a Hunkydory free paper that came with Making Cards Magazine.  The silver embellishments are cut with Spellbinders and the card was finished with some crystal glitter.

Shimmer Fairy

This is Briana fairy who is very versitile and I have used her several times in the run up to Christmas. The neice sentiment is from Hunkydory, last year’s stash, and base card and fairy’s wings are seriously glittered.

Creative Moments challenge – Vintage

 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Isaiah 7:14

My vintage card today has a bit of a twist in that it is for a boy. I have used a deightful digistamp from A day for daisies and teamed it up with all number of bits and bobs from my stash.  I distressed all the edges with vintage photo distress ink for both the vintage look and to get the mismatched pieces of paper to go together!

Glamourous 50th

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 27:1

I have used an old kit by Dawn Bibby for today’s card which is made for a neighbour.  She is very patriotic and this makes a perfect 50th card which is suitably glamourous.
