2 completely different Birthday cards

My first Birthday card is for my daughters birthday,she loves butterflies ,so here we have an overload of them.
The butterflies are handmade by myself the wings are acetate ,with the images already printed on,I have had them for ages ,I got them cos I loved them,then didnt have a clue what to do with them,
After looking at them carefully ,I decided to glue them on white and blue card ,then add an acetate butterfly on top.
I think they came out ok.

Heres a close up of the butterflies ,they really do look as if they could fly away.




This card is entirely different it is for my warhammer mad grandson ,I just hope he will like it

2 cards today

2 rather plainer cards for me today
This first froggy card is sooooooooooo cheerful ,would make anyone smile.
The image was a freebie again from Papercraftinspirations website
i just added a few blue gems to the crown
I have left the tongue empty,so i can add either a name,or a sentiment at a later date

heres a great card for a freind who likes a biccy with their tea or coffee,I know I do ,hate having a cuppa withoy my biccy.
The idea was again from this months papercraftinspirations magazine
Love the biscuits,they look so real.
The cup image was also a freebie


Also,in the background to the above pic,you can just about see a photo of my OH and myself ,which was taken over 40 years ago ,wish I was still that slim.....................................
