The fronts of the two cards were very similar, but in the trick card the card actually opened up the wrong way round (part of the trick) and had lots of spiders inside. The treat opened up as a card should do, and inside was a bookmark as a little pressie.

The main focus of the card was done using 3D peel-offs stuck onto card and then coloured using Sakura pens and a water brush. Unfortunately you don't see the subtle glitter effect from this photo.

These two cards are suitable for men - always difficult to make cards for!
I got the effect by putting a peel-off sticker on the paper, then used inks directly over them - using a few colours to get a bit of contrast. Then I removed the peel-off sticker which left the outline on the page.
I was very behind with my Teddy Bear Fat Book pages and had run out of inspiration. Then my friend Linda from the Craft Swap Forum designed this lovely teddy stamp (available here) and in a rush I managed to make all 7 of the pages I had left to do.
Unfortunately the scans don't really do these pages justice, but I thought I would just show a taster of what they look like here.
I decided to do my first attempt at a scrapbooking page. It seemed logical to start with the elephant I adopt - Emily Kate. I have been adopting her for the past five years or so and as I receive an updated photograph of her each year and also a certificate it seemed a shame just to put them in a drawer. So... here is my first attempt at scrapbooking!
