Third post...

... in a week!!! That hasnt happened in a long time :-).  Well I've just spotted a challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and thought I might enter this card, but I've now realised I cant as the image is from a pad and not one I've actually stamped - lol - oh dear!!  However its been looked into and its ok to enter the challenge - yay!

Now I'm not sure whether to give this to my s-i-l for her birthday next week or keep it for a mothers day card, hmmm, decisions :-).

The image is LOTV, which I have coloured with promarkers and added a tiny bit of glitter pen to the butterfly.

I have die cut the image and matted it onto fancy circle die cut- the papers are the last I think, from a paper pack that came with a magazine ages ago, matted onto pearlised card.  I have added ribbon, sentiment and gems from my stash.

I would like to enter this into:

Simon Says Stamp - add texture (ribbon and gems)
Sweet Stampin - spring flowers
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, its sunny here so I've managed to have a little potter about in the garden :-).

Thanks for looking

.. another post!!!  This is a card I made for Ians uncle who is reaching a 'big' birthday!!

I love this image I think his facial expression is fab - it is from Just Inklined, and he has been coloured with promarkers, and glossy accents added to his glasses.  The dp's are Kaisercraft and matted onto yellow card.  The sentiment I did on word.  Then I'm not sure if I've gone a bit mad with the punched stars!!!

I would like to enter this into:

The papershelter - animal magic (hope a duck is classed as an animal, if not just let me know and I can remove it :-) )
The pink elephant - Happy Birthday
