Happy Anniversary with Coco Bear 2nd time lucky

Am I the only one who makes cards, doesn't like them so they go in the bin? My first attempt at the anniversary card for my friend, I didn't like! So I made this one with Coco Bear from Digistamp Boutique.  Its for her to give to her hubby but when she collected it I suddenly wondered if it was too girly ! Do you think so?  She seemed happy with it. Entered into Allsorts challenge I also had to make 40th card for her friend shown below.
I am right into these stand up cards just now, I used to think they were a bit complicated to make but they are really quite easy aren't they?
The last card she wanted was a xmas card for her hubby so this time I used a digi image from pink petticoat , these penguins are really cute!
I kept this one clean and simple , I am also into these just now as they are so quick and easy once you have coloured the images.

21st Card, Album & Keepsake Box

Was asked recently to do a keepsake box for a 21st, matching card and photo album, was also told she likes ivory and gold but as I didnt want it to look weddingy I added a bit of chocolate brown to the edges of the flowers and for the figures.  My friend was absolutely delighted with these and the recipient loved them too.

Thanks for looking and any comments are very much appreciated and I will be sure to give you a visit...........K x

Fluffles Card Redone

Made this card from my hubby's friend to give to his wife, unfortunately I used the wrong glitter on the flowers and felt it looked a bit christmassy (first image) so I pulled off my handmade flowers and used some of my new flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts instead (second image)and was a lot happier with it.

Wedding Gift

Made these for my lovely friend Kirsty and her new hubby Kevin as their wedding gift, there is a Keepsake Box, Guest Book and a Photo Album, these were personalised and decorated to match her wedding invites which I did for her in the summer, her wedding was yesterday and we went along for the evening reception and had a great night, she was a stunning bride too.

I have also entered this into the Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge Anything But A Card

Keepsake Box to match Guest Book and card

We have had snow up to our armpits (well almost) this week, (so glad I bought snow boots a month ago) unfortunately I can't use this as an excuse not to get to work as it is only 10 mins along the road, hope you have not been snowed in too much where you are.

The keepsake box was made to match the guest book and card I did earlier and was requested as an extra at the last minute, its quite a large box , big enough to hold all their cards and bits and pieces from their wedding day.  I have to add that the dripping hearts idea came from someone else but I can't remember where , so if you know who's idea it was let me know so I can give them full credit.

Also the was asked for some invites for a Christmas party, she loved the sample shown , so spent a whole day making 50 for her , which she also loved.
