My First Card Assignment For A Company!

The other day I saw that Jessica Weible Illustrations were looking for
Paper Crafters.   I wrote and said that I would be interested and this
is the first card I have made for them using one of their cute digital

I didn't have the confidence before to apply for this type of position.
All I have to do is ask for an image and then make a card using the
image.  What fun!

I coloured RollerSkateKate using PS and then cut out the image
using Nestabilities Lacey Ovales. I used 'core'dinations' cardstock
for the card and green background. The patterned cardstock
is from a 'quite contrary' paper pad.  I used Cuttlebug embossing
folder Swiss Dots on the green background and went around it
with a distressing tool.  The embellishments I took from the image.

Yehela's 5 - Scrapbook Page

Yehela, one of my grandchildren, turned 5 last week and this is
the page I did for her.  I put the three photos into different
shapes using PS.  (I learn as I go!!).  I cut strips of different
patterned papers to use for the background and matted
each photo, with the same colour cardstock.  I wote out
some of Yehela's likes on mt masking tape.  I used punches
on the edges of a couple of the strips.  I am so busy making
greeting cards, but I make a point of doing a scrapbook
page of each of my grandchildren every year - and a card,
of course!
