Harry`s Card

Well this took for ages to make what could go wrong did ,the edges kept breaking when I got the first large shape out of the die I did it 3 times even with wax paper in the end I put it down to the card I was using ,
then the stamp Image didn`t stamp right 1st I thought I got the Image lined up but no so got  a blurred Image
so re stamped it further down the card, what I should of done was cut the other Image off but no so when I cut the shape out with the image then embossed it you guessed it I had a upside down Image of the bad one on my good Image so I binned it had had to start again .Once I got over this it seemed to fall into place but then I had to find a shape what fit my letters so I went to my page dies one fitted nicely so now i could construct so here is the card

Spellbinders dies

Owen`s card

Hi thank you for your lovely comment`s on my post yesterday it did mean a lot to me ,
this was a fairly quick card once I had found the Image on the net

Owen is into Batman ,Dr Who , and I have nothing like that last year I did him the welsh flag B.C and a flash Car Card ,

I thought there would be something on my loony tunes Cd but no I just used a backing paper from there
so here is the card

Images from the Net they are free clip art
I also used my 3d gloss clear glue I don`t use this very often must start to use more often

I must get on with my Mums card which is Sunday and I have 80th B. card (Harry to do for sunday )
we are going out for Lunch in Canterbury to celebrate both Birthdays ,Harry is my Brother-In -Law
