Birthday Cards

Handmade Birthday cards I received last week from my inspiring family and friends. :-)  This beautiful card was made by my Mum.  Her first try at a twisted easel card.  I so love the colours and that flourish.....hand cut, now how inspiring is that.  Mum has arthritis in her fingers and continually amazes me how neatly and finely she can cut.

This is from my friend Helene who has used paper tole roses to frame the sentiment.  This lady too has arthritis in her fingers and has hand cut the roses.

This lovely card is from my friend Helen, she has used a Flourish stamp called Berry Sweet coloured with Copic pens.  Don't you like the embossed wood grain background and those frames are all hand cut, no dies.

Now Joy is an amazing photographer.  This card she made using one of her many beautiful photos of Morocco.

Not Anita's work but she has an eye for beautiful pieces of handmade art.  Can you believe this card is quilled.  It is that fine that on the night I received it I could only feel what it was like as I didn't have my glasses.  Next day in the morning light I could see all the love pieces that went into making this lovely hibiscus flower.

Well have a lovely day everyone. :-)
