DIY Dad Birthday Card

It was my Dad's birthday on Friday and as he's a builder I made him this card. I found it really hard to make and it took me about a week in the end - I had an idea in my head of what I wanted but then it didn't look right! Cue attacking it with my Distress Inks to try and bring everything together lol. It hasn't turned out too bad and I'm definitely loving my new Woodware button punch.

18th Birthday Football Card

It's my six foot something "little" brothers 18th birthday on Friday, so i've made him this card as he's football mad. I got to play with Martin's Mum's Craft Robo at the weekend and i'm in love - it's soo amazing and the possibilities are endless! I cut out the pitch outline for this card, which would have taken ages by hand. I'll definitely be looking to buy myself one soon...

Altered Sweetie Dispenser

My colleague at work asked me a while ago if I fancied a commissioned project. Intrigued I said yes so he gave me an old metal and glass Jelly Belly bean dispenser. His request was for it to be "blinged out" with a Union Jack theme, as he wants to give it to a friend for her birthday. I spent all day yesterday sticking on about 1,500 4mm gems and this is how it now looks.
