Some cards...

April was a busy month birthday wise and I can now show you some of the cards I made..
..this one for youngest Grandson, I used a Seth Apter stamp and my handy film strip stamp and I'm afraid I don't know who the bike stamp was designed by!
 This for my eldest Grandson - made using Indigoblu symbols stamps, some Trish Latimer stars, a faux credit card and some die cut stars.
The card above was for our clever recycling friend Elizabeth, to celebrate her (b)Earthday. I used one of my gelli prints made with corrugated card and used Donna Grey's That's Crafty stamps - isn't he cute?

Finally, the day after Elizabeth's birthday is my hubby's birthday so I took this with me when we went away.
I am hoping that while you are reading this the sun is shining wherever we all are!
It's a Bank Holiday weekend in the UK so we are having some time at our caravan and this is a scheduled post!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Why didn't I know T's birthday was the day after mine? Somehow, I feel I should have known that. It's a gorgeous card and I am sure he enjoyed it, understanding his humor and all.

BTW, I'm showing your card (and wonderful gifts, too) during T this Tuesday.

Great, creative and fun cards. I love the way you used my stamp in the first card for that background detail.
