Card for Marie's niece.

Hello again!!!!!!!
This is the card that I made toda for Marie from the cricut mb. She put out a call for some cards for her niece's birthday on the mb and this is mine.
I used one of my sisters super cute fairies for the button an popped Lauren's name around it in wordart. I have a thing about personlising cards so peole know they were made just for them!!! I cut it with my new fiskars squeeze punch ( had to try it out!!! lol !!!) and inked the edges then I popped a shadow one behind and inked the edges of that too, then I covered it in 3d glaze to make it like a button. Its hard to see in the picture but it really does look sooooo cute!!!
The idea for the base of the cards came from my latest do crafts newsletter!!! (heres the link for the card directions http://www.docrafts.co.uk/asp/projects/project.asp?id=2018 )
I cuttlebugged the base bit with swiss dots and the little opening flap bit with the happy birthday folder and inked the edges of them. I popped some doodle dots on to spruce up the corners and edges and some ribbon down the side. The birthday girl is from storybook and I popped some glitter glue bling on it to make it stand out a little.
I cut a tag from george and popped some ribbon in with a little eyelet (grrrr, big bite tried to eat it a bit but you can't tell too much......i hope!!!) the 12 and heart stickers are from my stash.
I love the way the flappy bit tucks behind the little circle and it mounted on a normal A6 plain card base which made the inside easy to write on (.....actually I did it on my computer, I do not like my handwriting at all so most things get done on my laptop!!!)
I realy enjoyed making this, it will be going in the postbox as soon as the little button is dry!!!
Thankyou for popping in xxxxxx

I am sure most of you know I have an amazing sister, she is not only my sister but one of my best friends too. I struggle with stamping ( even though Ihave t least 40 stamps and try really hard I am awful at colouring them!!!) so my big sis spends ages drawing and colouring them for me, then my also amazing husband scans them for me so I can use them on cards.
My husband and I have been working out how best to sell them for her to say thankyou and this is how I am going to start.
It would be a great help to me if you could leave a comment and leave any feedback.
I have made lots of cards with them and I love them, i just want to say thankyou to my big sis.I feel honoured to have a family that actively support my scrapping and cardmaking.
Thankyou for peeking xxxx
