Birthday notebooks!

Hi crafters,
I've been meaning to make these gifts for ages and actually got round to it this week.
These are for my niece's who have their Birthdays on the same day (2 years apart) which is always a bit tricky! So I decided to decorate a notebook each for them.

I've used Saturated Canary images for them both and coloured them with my promarkers.  I struggled a bit with the hair,  need to practice a bit more I think lol. I added lace,  buttons,  flowers and pearls and a bit of glitter to the letters.
I hope they like them and at least they can use them instead of being kept in a drawer as a card would be!

I'd like to enter my creations in this week's Passion for Promarkers challenge which is ' Lots of layers'.
Thanks for looking,
Hugs, Karen xx

Try another piano!

Hi crafters,
I've finally got another card to show you! Haven't done much crafting lately,  I think it's because I've found it hard to concentrate as my first born is leaving the nest to go to Uni tomorrow. I'll probably be crafting a lot after he goes though to keep my mind occupied so that I'm not worrying about him all the time lol!
Anyway,  I made this card for a music teacher who was retiring and I was pleased with how it turned out.

I used a Spellbinders border die for the piano shape, someWOC flowers and some wooden music notes finished off the card.
Thanks for looking and hopefully I'll have some more cards to show you soon, especially as I'll have a desk to use now that No. 1 son is away, hee hee.
Hugs, Karen xx
