Recent Birthday Cards

December and January are busy months as most of my family have birthdays then (myself included) and several friends too!  Not forgetting Christmas of course.  The reason I started making cards in the first place was the lack of good cards in the shops at the very time I needed plenty as the card shops seemed to assume nobody ever has a birthday near Christmas...

An easel card for Mother-in-Law's 90th birthday

This was for one of my sisters' 50th birthday; she's a brilliant knitter.  I cut a circle from card and wound it with a lovely cerise boucl√© yarn and made the knitting needles from kebab sticks and buttons

I made two similar cards as two photographers had birthdays in January.  The camera is made from silver and black card, I made my own templates for it from looking at pictures of vintage cameras.

And last but not least a bouquet of flowers for my own lovely Mum's birthday
