If you have arrived here from Valerie's Blog then you are on the right track!!

I have three cards to share with you today!!!
This first card I made for a friend of mine who turned 40 on Friday rides a harley and I thought this Prairie Fairy image was perfect!!

This second card I've made for my mum for her birthday.

 This third card is for no-one in particular!! But isn't he just so cute!!!

I coloured all the images in with Tria markers and have used glitter pens to add a bit of sparkle!! The papers are all scraps from my stash as is the ribbon!!! And I've added embellishments to finish off all the cards!!! The sentiment on the harley card is from Tickled Pink Stamps!!!

 I am the last stop on the hop today so I hope you have enjoyed what you have seen today. But don't forget that there are 4 more days of hopping to do so be sure to head back to Gill's Blog tomorrow to see what the next lot of particpants have created!!
