Hooray! A Card To Show...

Well hello and Happy Sunday - I hope you are all having a great weekend! They fly by much too quickly for me!

I have at last managed to finish a card that I can show you. This card is for my brother who is 40 tomorrow. I like making this style of card for special number birthdays - as the numbers fit perfectly on the back panel. I have used Sports George from Dottie Downloads, but I made him a bit too small I think, and I used the wrong red for his shirt, but it doesn't look too bad does it?? I've decoupaged George up a little bit. The papers I've used for the numbers and the strips are Basic Grey Cupcake.

Anyway, I hope my brother likes his card! I'd best go now 'cos hubby's just gone to work and I should be getting on with the housework (yeuk!!) before visiting grandparents this afternoon.

Hope to see you again soon.

Love, Andrea xx

Friday Sketchers & Charisma Cardz Challenges

Happy Wednesday crafters!

I'm so disappointed today - my husband has spoken to his boss and arranged the day off work so that I could go to the Hobbycrafts show in Birmingham on 5th November. But, when I phoned to book my place on the coach trip, they told me they had a misprint in their leaflet - they are going on the Sunday not Thursday. And my husband is working all weekend because they are stocktaking, so I can't go on the trip :(

Anyway, I'll show you my card - maybe some lovely comments would cheer me up!!

I have followed the sketch on this week's Friday Sketchers challenge - loved using this one. And I have stamped Miss Anya 3 times, coloured her with my watercolour pencils, and decoupaged her up, so that fits this weeks challenge over on Charisma Cardz. The papers are My Minds Eye Magnolia, courtesy of Fran (I love these papers). The sentiment is from Papermania. Ribbon and gems from my stash.

The image below is meant to show the decoupaged Anya (doesn't show it very clearly though!).

I hope you like my card, and I look forward to you popping back again sometime to see what I've been up to!

Love, Andrea xx
