Cancer Free!

This is my favourite card I have made this year I have used an image from fotosearch I then used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut out the bits I needed to decoupage I mounted into a mat of blue card and added a stripe behind  The bits of card all come from my scraps box, I cannot remember what I cut them off Finally finished with a sentiment
The reason this is my favourite card as earlier this year my father in law was diagnosed with cancer and needed an operation.   We thought after the operation he would then need follow up treatment for quite a few months. To our amazement the surgery was so successful that no further treatment was needed and it is now confirmed he is cancer free.  He wanted a card to thank his surgeon and his team for all they have done for him and this the card. It truly was an answer to prayers

Christmas Vouchers

This is a bit picture heavy. But I have been asked by my sister to make some Christmas Vouchers for 4 off her friends and family (please note I forgot to take a picture of one!) I used my Brother Scan n Cut to design the boxes and cut them. Then I found the images and printed them. I thought it was nicer to have a little pressies box rather than just a card
