So Far Behind

Yup...you read it right...I am so far behind! I have 3 cards to post and 1 card to post the front of it (Gabrielle). But I have very little time right now so I am going to post the 3 cards and then come back and fill in the details for everyone.

The first one is a Birthday card that I did for a friend of mine. The  image is from Guylou's Inimitibility...you can find her link in the left hand column. The image is called Manager Brenda and was a real joy to work with.
The caption on the front reads: Happy Birthday to the Girl who's still got it...
The inside reads: Now if you can only remember where you put it!

The next card is a card using a Priscilla Styles image. She calls this one fruit and she gave it to the members of her blog to celebrate having 400 members! As soon as I saw this image I knew what I wanted to do with it. I could see reds, and dark purples and lots of gold. So that is what I did.


The leaves are colored with 2 different types of gold pen...a mat gold and a glitter gold. The vines are done with the glitter gold and the branch is done with the mat gold on the end and a third gold. I wanted to make this a Christmas card so I figured using the deep reds and purples and golds would help to give it that festive look.
The last image that I'm going to post is a card that I did for a young lady that I know. She asked me to make a Sleeping Beauty card for a friend of her's daughter. And thanks to a wonderful friend, I was able to find the perfect image and make a card that I hope she'll like as much as I do.

Sleeping Beauty's dress is done in Red on the top, with a red glitter collar and red glitter at the waist. There is a pink shimmer underlay (on top). The bottom of the dress is pink with pink shimmer details...and a red underdress with red glitter accent. Her head is topped by a glittering gold crown. The top cs is a red shimmer paper, with white paper that I used a SU Holly stampin wheel to decorate, underneath. The main part of the card is made with SU Cherry Cobbler cs.
