Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary & Merry Christmas

We had a family celebration yesterday for my SIL and BIL birthdays and wedding anniversary.

We also had our first opportunity to catch up with the Bride and Groom - they have returned from their honeymoon and they are now back in the 'real world' ;-)

I gave RosaLia some money, but placed it in a gift card holder (that I made of course ;-))

 Here is the card I made for RosaLia

Penny Black image coloured with water pencils and highlighted with Kindy Glitz, layered onto cardstock, embellished with flowers and gems.
I have been reusing old supplies in an endeavour to lessen my stash - I have so much paper it is just not funny any more ;-) 

Here is the card for Greg

I used an image I came across paper squirrel and an SVG from The Creative Pointe - it came together beautifully - I can easily see me using this concept again ;-)  This one has been coloured with Copics, layered using foam dots and mounted onto square black cardstock.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Clean and Simple - inspired by  sketch 168
Here come the boys - men in your life

It was also Greg and RosaLia's 21st wedding anniversary.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Less is More - a bit of bling
Quirky Cards - clean and simple

Lauren and Brett will be spending Christmas with mum, Sharon, overseas, so we gave them Christmas presents and cards early. 

I made these cute little Christmas cards using images from Digistamp Boutique - hurry they are still on special until the end of the month.  Images printed onto cardstock, cut out using spellbinders on the cuttlebug, hand coloured with copics and highlighted with kindy glitz - stay turned, there will be more cards using these delightful images ;-)

I would like to enter these Christmas cards for the following challenges:
Pollycraft Monday - Christmas Fun
Stamptacular Sunday 140 - anything Christmas
Forever Friends - christmas is coming - OOPS ....... Too late ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day. 
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-) 
Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
