Two Max Cards.............

Two 'Max' cards today, this first one is for his third birthday, which falls in May while we are away. the monkey and papers are all from the Paper Boutique CD by Polkadoodles. Needless to say, the sentiment is perfect for him, he's as lively as a cartload of monkeys!

With this CD, you just type in the sentiment you want on a tag and print it out, so great for personalised cards......

This second one is Max by default. It is another Papercraft Inspirations quick card, I was asked to make a birth announcement, the cork letter stickers were perfect for the job, but this was the only name I could make from the remnants I had............ well, there is always an X left over isn't there?
I cut a 4" circle out using my george cartridge and cricut machine, and cut away 1/4 of this to form the pram shape. Two 1" circles for the wheels, a strip of punched border and a hand doodled scroll for the handle. All the gorgeous papers are from the Dreams Come True CD from Funky Hand
I haven't been very productive this week, I have a very sore inflammed eye, and have been given strict orders to rest it. How can I rest it? Everything I like to do involves using my eyes. I might have to resort to a pirate-like patch, I could alter it with sequins or something to make it a bit more attractive, I might even start a new fashion trend, although that is very unlikely.

Beautiful cards! Stickles might be the way to go to decorate an eye patch - no fear of them falling off. :-)

Your cards are adorable! We call our three kids our monkeys, well, we did 10 years ago when they were kids! If you make an eye-patch, you could always where dillybobbers on your head to detract from the pirate look!

Becky said...

Both of these are gorgeous. So creative.

On that note, I also want to let you know that I have a beautiful blogger award for you on my blog which awaits your retrieval. So come over to my blog & get it.

Oh, I just love that monkey card, En! I think I'll head over and check out that cd. Your pram is adorable with all of the polka dots. I have those cork alpha stickers... somewhere. What's your secret to cutting out all of these pieces with only one eye?! I can't do it with two eyes! Hope that all clears up for you quick as a whip!

Myra said...

These are wonderful cards! Love the colors.

sarah@notquitemarthastewart said...

Hope you get better soon, I say go with the patch and start talking like a pirate! You may atleast get some fun out of a gammy eye, right?
Again, a very cute card and I liked the way you made the pram, clever!

Maryellen said...

I love the cards you made!
Please rest your eyes Enfys, so
they can heal. I would be lost
without your cute stories and
cards!!!!! Take care friend!
Hugs,
Maryellen

Jessica said...

I love these cards! Both show your creativity! And Max is a lucky boy to have you for his Gran!
So what did you do to your eye? I hope it heals quickly, so you can get back to normal. But do be a good girl, take care of yourself, so you don't make it worse.
Hugs, Jess

Oh Enfys, so sorry to hear that your eye is inflamed. Hope it gets better soon. Two gorgeous cards and I especially like the cheeky monkey one.

Lisa said...

LOL!!! I can just picture you with a embellied eye-patch! You could also get a stuffed parrot for your shoulder and decorate it with more feathers, fibers, and of course Primas!

Your cards are too cute, I love the monkey card!! I love how you fashioned the pram, very clever!!!!

Hope your eye gets much better soon, please rest as much as possible!!!
