Two commissions...

A lovely work friend asked me to make some cards for one of her friends ... Ahem ahem! And so this morning I was more than happy to sit down and create two girly girly cards!

The first is for a horse mad eight year old, Anna and so I chose the adorable Gorjuss stamp and coloured it as a magical rainbow horse and then chose pretty purple and pink papers, a doily, some flowers and some pearls to finish off the gorgeous image. Also some glitter card thrown in for added sparkle!
This card is entered in the challenge over at card makin mamas to use hearts ... Some on the image and some on the background paper. Also entering in the animal antics challenge at the secret crafters Saturday challenge
The second is for a slightly old girl ... 10!

I chose coordinating papers with the trendy bunting and some flowers and stripes and used a Martha stewart punch down one edge, some pink rhinestones and a Debbie Moore stamp. I decided on paper piecing for the image so after colouring some with promarkers I then used the same papers as the background to piece together the balloons and clothes. Again part of a doily (well I had them out of the cupboard so I thought why not!) Oh and a lengthy of organza ribbon to add the dimension and soften the card up a little.
I am entering this card into the perfect sentiments challenge ... Anything goes with a sentiment and the touch of sparkle card challenge at Stamp n doodle.
I love doing the larger cards ... And girly cards are so much fun. Tuesday I go back to work and so will hand these over then where hopefully the person ordering them will be happy.
I have not managed to tidy up after this mornings crafting session and so maybe some more crafting later on ... But now we are off to some friends for Sunday lunch ... Yummy!
Posted using BlogPress from my iPad which means I probably haven't proof read the above and there is likely to be rubbish included that I probably should have thought about more! So please accept this post as it is and sorry that I didn't take more care!
