Hello everyone well we had some thunder and lightning Friday night and today had been much cooler (Gggrrrrrrrr!!!!!). I had a really good day Friday too, I managed to get 2 cards made for Phil’s birthday next week now I just have to make one from Amy for him. Shame I couldn’t do the same today oh well never mind there’s always tomorrow I guess.
So my card for today is one I made for hubby this one is from his Mom & Dad I have made an 8x8” card blank and the papers are from nitwits and pixels scrapper
I have distressed and inked the edges of the papers with faded jeans and rusty hinge DI.
The image is from Mo Manning and has been coloured with polychrome pencils I tried to be a little more adventurous with my colouring and tried to give him proper eyes as in whites and colour now this is my very first attempt (Mo I hope I have not upset you :0))) I know it’s not perfect but….
I have known Phil for nearly 30 years now and TBH I really don’t know if he ever had a kite when he was a lado, but I was fed up with doing football cards I thought I would do something different this year (you should see the one from me hahaha)
I was going to put some string on the image to go as the kite string but I got so wrapped up putting it together, I totally forgot until I had attached it to the backing card (ooopppps!!)
I generated the sentiment both on the image and the separate one on my PC and then to finish I added 3 buttons with thread.
To finish off of course I made the insert using papers from the front and also bringing the image through to tie it all together.
So there you have my card for today I do hope you like it and I will see you all very soon with another make but for now I will leave you with a list of challenges and another look at the super cute image
Enjoy the rest of the weekend take care xx
