For the first time in many moons, I am ready to post off my wonderful nephews and niece's birthday pressies - important dates which all fall over the next couple of months.

After some serious blog hopping and idea-pilfering, I produced the following two cards for the boys...

Sir M's card features an SU 'bot, layered onto a fantastic technique I picked up from blogger Allison Ohran.  Simply emboss a design on card stock (here I used SU Lots of Bots bolts) then covering with tin foil, run the piece through the Cuttlebug and, voila!  A great metallic watermark effect!
These cute little guys are from Maya Road and have been coloured in with brush markers, accented with a little Kindy Glitz for good measure!

Ooooh!  I took this idea from a local craft shop and am so pleased I was able to memorise the basic layout as to take a photo in store was a BIG no-no!

Using My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary paper matched with some trusty Bazill, this easel card is a pretty alternative to the usual 'Congrats on your new baby' card.

Made with love for a new princess in the world (welcome Miss Emily Grace xx) I spiced some of the punched flowers with SU Dazzling Diamonds and some diamond gems.  The ribbon is SU Old Olive.
