Hello Fellow Bloggers
It is my sister-in-law's 50th birthday today, so I'll show you the card I made for her.
The image is a Mo Manning digi called Whats Cooking - isn't she a little sweetie? She's coloured with promarkers. The backing paper is from Do Crafts Hanoverian pad, and I bought the glitter card yesterday in town. The lacy flowers were purchased from my local craft shop, as were the pearls. I used an Anita's alphabet die to make the word Fifty. On studying this card after I'd finished I felt as though there was something missing - maybe I should have added leaves or a swirl under/around the flowers, but it was just too late by then (LOL!)
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
One Stitch at a Time - Use a digi
All Sorts Challenge - In Bloom
I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes
Delightful Challenges - Celebration - 50th birthday
Stampin for the Weekend - Show us your style - I like to make the cards individual and personal by using an image which somehow reminds me of the recipient or depicts something that they do (eg my sister-in-law is a school cook so I wanted to use a cooking image of some kind for her card this year), and I try to colour the hair in a similar way to the recipient's hair (not sure I manage that every time, but I give it a go LOL)
Fab n Funky Challenges - Cute and Girly
It is supposed to be Sports Day at school tomorrow but the forecast is not too good (again!) - I have the day off but I've had to bring work home so, if sports day is off, I expect I'll be working at home! Richard is off tomorrow too - he's got to have a steroid injection in his elbow - I hope it does the trick and eases his pain!
Better go - I should be ironing!
See you soon.
Love, Andrea xx
