loads of cards

hi world

now is the beginning of my  card making season, loads of birthdays and stuff. here is the first batch
the first card is a birthday card for my new son in-law (opps a bit late ) he is another cricket fan.
I have started to print greetings on the computer and adding glossy or crackle accents. I really like the look of the crackle, epecially when the paper shrinks too.

This next card is a welcome home card for the happy couple from their honeymoon. I used the same tweedle dee and tweedle dum stamp I used on their wedding card. The background is a colour chart card. purple of course!

The last card is for someone at work who is leaving to start a 'proper' job as a teacher. I thought it was time I had a change from all the grungy stuff and made a slightly cute-sier card. The stamp was a freeby from a magazine.

The papers are from papermania and the embossing from a Tim folder (well he has to get in on the action somewhere). The ribbon is a knitting yarn I brought ages ago and have not used much except for present wrapping, it is very silky but looks ok.
well I'm off to try my hand at grungy monday   but not sure what to do as I'm not really feeling very well! And I still have lots of other cards to make too
