Mother Birthday card

Howdy doody everyone I hope you are all fine and dandy and are not to washed out with this awful weather we have had I can’t remember the last time I have seen so much rain in such a short period where the sun!!!!!!!
Has anyone else noticed blogger is not being very friendly lately if you have a signature in your post (Hmmmmmpphhhh not a happy BUNNY)

Anyways eeeeeeekkkkkkkk I’m so excited I have some absolutely fantabulous news to tell you all very soon (squeallll) can’t wait but sssshhhhhhh can’t tell you just yet you will just have to watch this space I’m sooooo excited (did I say that already well I am).
I have had a few cards to make this week 2 sympathy cards never nice cards to make but especially when they’re for family members. I will show these at a later date. Then my dear friends hubby has a birthday on Monday so I needed to get one made for him as it’s his 70th and he’s a big Burnley fan so it was a football related card I opted for (men are so much easier to make for if they love a sport) And then the card I am showing today is using the image I posted on my FB timeline a couple of days ago as a WIP I really enjoyed colouring the image even though I made it quite large so was a little daunting.

The card is from my Mom in Law to send to her Mom and I thought the image was fitting to my Mom in Laws childhood in a way as she is the eldest of 2 girls so that was my line of thinking… anyway here is the card
It’s my usual 8x8” and the papers are freebies but I can’t remember where they are all from I think it was cajoline-scraps but not 100% sure (forgot to make note) I distressed the edges and inked with various pink distress inks then matted the smaller pieces onto white card which I also distressed.

The image is from Mo Manning and called Cathy and Beth(merged)and I have coloured them using a mix of polychromo, luminance and Pablo pencils (getting good ain’t I hahaha only joking) I then cut the image out distressed the edges and inked added the sentiment before sticking into place.

For the embellishments well I didn’t want to overdo them so I kept it pretty simple and used a digital embellishment from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles collection  (if you haven’t seen it you should check it out super cute)I printed the flower element off a couple of times cut it out then decoupaged it adding micro beads and sparkles to the centres. And that was pretty much it for the outside.

For the insert I did my usual taking some of the papers from the front and faux matting with a white matt then adding the image to the bottom corners to tie it all together then because it the card was for my Nan in Law and those who read regular will she loves a card with a verse (the verse makes the card as she says)I had to add a good one (I hope I did OK).

So there you have it my card for today I hope you like it and I will definitely see you very soon with more cards oh and yes my exciting news (eeeeekkkkkkkkk!!!!!!!!)


Happy Crafting
