A few of my commissioned cards

Good evening, and thank you very much for your lovely comments and good wishes for a better nights' sleep.  I thankfully managed to sleep better, but in order to catch up with all the sleep depravation, i would have to sleep like the Sleeping Beauty or Rip Van Winkle.  I sometimes wonder what I would be like if I slept a full 7 or 8 hours sleep. I guess I would be superchaged as even although I don't sleep well I still manage to get through all I have to. Alistair will quite often tell me to sit and relax I do too much, I usually reply with well if I don't do this or that will it get done?, bless him he never has a reply for that one.
Anyway I am rambling.  My friend Linda called over tonight to pick up the Christmas cards she had asked me to make for her and she was delighted with them.  You know what its like fellow crafters, your given specific details of how people want the card to look.Well I had 16 to do and 9 of them were to be with across the miles, all robins and 1 had to be larger than the others, I was heartily sick of robins by the time I was finished them and I really love robins. Here are a couple of them

 The top one is a LOTV stamp and sentiment, and coloured with watercolour pencils, Papermania paper and just bits from my stash.  LC stamp for the other one again with watercolour pencils and LOTV paper and sentiment, I particularily like this image.
 These two card are for Linda's Grandson and Grandaughter, in fact shes has another two Grandaughters, but I'll only show these 2 cards, they were to be all snowman cards.  This one above is from the Crafters Companion kit, so I didn't really creat it, just put it together, the one below, is again Crafters Companion Snowman stamp coloured with promarkers, snowflaked and glittered on a LC card.

So, thats all for tonight from me, I'm away to get a few rounds of knitting  done and a look at the telly, there just might be something decent on, you never know.
Good Night all and I will look forward to seeing more of your creations tomorrow

Good Morning Kate,
Your cards are all fantastic, and of course you created them no matter where you got the image from. All fine and good having images but it is really what you do with them that makes the cards.
Hope you managed to get a fair bit of the knitting done and you did not fall asleep watching the telly.
Have a Great Day

Great cards Kate. It is always a pain when people give you instructions as to what they want - it makes it much more difficult. I like all of these but especially the first one.
