Card - hello there

Hi! Are you having a lazy crafty Sunday? I'm trying too, but it's very difficult with The Boy and The Man at home... Luckily they have just 'remembered' that the Disney channel exists and are happily out THERE watching TV, so I can be in HERE creating without having to stop every couple of minutes to deal with usual mummy/wife/house things!!! Yay!

So first up today I have a bright and happy card to share. Isn't it happy? The image was designed by the very talented Christine Ingram. Can you see this little dude has a cochlear implant just like The Boy? How cool is that!!! I am hoping to. Make up some cards for our mates at RIDBC before The Boy and The Man visit there next month but I will see how I go!


Card recipe:
Cardstock/paper: Marina Mist, Bashful Blue (ret.), Whisper White (SU!), blending card, That's My Boy (Echo Park)
Stamps: boy (Christine Ingram), sentiment (SU!)
Colouring medium: copics (I know, I need to get in the habit of writing down my combos!)
Other: embossing folder (Provocraft), embroidery floss, brads

Challenges:
Tuesday Morning Sketches: sketch #253 + masculine

Papertake Weekly: for the boys
Cute Card Thursday: #325 so macho
Sister Act Challenge: #61 anything goes
Scrapers Delight: anything goes + layer it up

Next up... Still deciding - a card featuring the beautiful Tatiana from Sweet Nellie stamps or a layout??? Stay tuned :)

  1. Now that is cool! An image that reflects kids who have something 'different' on a card is a beautiful amazing thing - my kids are both on the autism spectrum, so we're always on the lookout for 'stuff' in the media :) I'm off to check out this company. So glad you were inspired to use the sketch at TMS this week - I'm sharing your card on our Facebook page later today: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tuesday-Morning-Sketches/165327566909261?ref=hl
