Family Birthday Cards

Here are my 2 latest cards. The woodpecker card is for my son's birthday (he is 28 today) and the red and white doggy card was for my husband's birthday yesterday.

The woodpecker image is a Joanna Sheen stamp coloured with lyra crayons. The tree pattern paper was made using Glimmer Mists over a Glimmer Screen.

The dog stamps are by various companies (2 unknown but the two on the right are by Magnolia and Penny Black). The only colour I used on the images was black marker and red Stickles as I wanted to keep it fairly simple.

Fab cards, gorgeous bird image and the dog one is so cute. The dog on the left btw is a Home and Hearts stamp that was sold on QVC a while back - I have that stamp too.

Great cards Denise. I love the woodpecker - I should get this stamp really. We have two or three of these birds in the garden most of the time and they are great entertainers.
