21st key with popup insert

I cannot believe my eldest granddaughter will be 21 next month - it doesn't seem five minutes since I was designing a sweet sixteen card for her!  I spent a long time fiddling with this one to get it how I wanted it, the popup insert especially gave me a few problems, but I am reasonably happy with the way it looks now and I know she will like it.  As usual the template is freely shared on the UKS site.  My nephew has his fortieth in February and I am working on something suitably masculine for him!  I'm not so keen on men's cards - no ribbons, bows or beads!!

Square ribbon card with circular topper

This is one I designed for my cousin's birthday in December last year - nice warm colours for the winter!  The cutting template is freely shared on the UKS site

Deco card with lady silhouette

I designed this card for my niece's birthday last November.  The silhouette has been created from an old family photograph taken in the 1920's of my late father's cousin, a rather elegant lady!  I have glued a white feather behind her which gives quite a nice effect.  It's not my usual style of card, but it never hurts to try something different!

Dove and rose window sympathy card

My dearest sister lost her long and hard fought battle in October 2012 and this is the card I designed to give to her family.  The colours I used were muted so unfortunately the photo doesn't show it up too well. It was an unbearably sad occasion and I still can't believe she has gone.  The template is freely shared on the UKS site.
