Can you add some words???.......

Here are a couple of cards where I was asked if I could add some words i.e. make them personal.  Well as the cards had already been made this proved a challenge.  It was OK when I was able to make an insert and put the personal bit in the middle, well mostly...........


This is a gatefold card that I have previously posted using Fox and Friends and I was asked to put  - to Grandson and maybe his name -  Euan.  However as you can see I've pretty much filled up the middle with the little animals peeking out.  After much thought I realised I could put some computer printed panels on the inside of the "doors" and I'm really pleased with the result.




My next card to show you is using that fabby motorcycle stamp.  This time I'd used Night of Navy as a card base and Bashful Blue embossed with the square lattice folder.  I'd coloured in the motorbike to match on Whisper White.  Fortunately I hadn't put a sentiment on the front of this one so it wasn't too difficult to use the tag punches and again my computer to make the sentiment - Happy Birthday Son. 



Thanks for looking again and a Hi goes out to Valerie and Lynn.  Hope everyone is having a good week. x
