Black & Red Skater Card

I've been asked to make a card for someone's nephew who's turning 13. Apparently he's into skateboarding, BMX, X-Box, Green Day, iPod and Facebook. She also requested that the colour scheme is black and red to match his room. I had the perfect background in mind but it was in shades of blue so a bit of editing in PhotoShop and voila! The image is from Bird's Cards.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Fuschia Wedding Invites

My hairdresser is getting married next year and wants to hand make her own invites. She knows exactly what she wants in her head but doesn't know how to go about actually making them so asked for my help. I offered to make her a couple of mock up invitations to use as a starting point and this is what i've come up with based on her sketch. The wording is from a template online!

Masculine Cake Day Card

It's my colleague's birthday soon and as i'm in charge of cards for our team I've made one! I've used male Dovecraft papers then stitched around the edge. I haven't used a sewing machine since doing Textiles at school but with help from my Mum it's turned out quite good. I want my own mini machine now though, so if anyone finds one that does zig zag stitch then let me know...
