Hi, and welcome!
I would like all those of you who don't live in the British Isles to take a good look out of your window.....do you see sunshine?......it's quite easy to recognise.....it makes everything look brighter, clearer, and lifts the spirits......although I'm only going off hearsay, because we haven't seen any for too long!
So.......if you are hoggin' more than your fair share......play nicely, and share!!!
If you've been around here for a while, you'll know that I really do not like the heat, but a little benign sunshine does everybody some good......even if it's just a dose of Vitamin D.....haaa!
I've mentioned that I've been struggling to get any crafty creatin' done, but I actually did manage to spend some time, today, getting one together for another grandson's birthday.
Spencer was my very own birthday present, born on my birthday 6 years ago.....our special day is this coming Wednesday, and here's the card I'm going to give him.........
I've not made many easel cards, so thought I'd try my hand. I found a few sheets of this really nice woodgrain card when I was in Cornwall, and thought it would be good for a male card.
I love Bugaboo images, and this one really caught my eye.......seriously cute! Edit: This is actually a freebie from Dearie Dolls, NOT Bugaboo....sorry!
Coloured up with PMs, cut out with a circle punch, and mounted onto two layers of Nesties......a little ink around the image and a small wooden star with my hand-drawn and cut #6..........the papers are from my Portobello Road stash.......
I covered a larger star, and two ikkle ones, with more Portobello Road paper, added a sentiment rub-on and Scrapmetal circles, and inked all the edges........layered onto two strips of the same paper......
The "Howdy Partner" sentiment is from a stamp set I've had forever, and the #6 was already printed on the paper....haa!....just went around the edge with a marker to make it stand out a bit more.......done!
Hee-haaaaa.......or whatever strange noise cowboys make........!!
