Another Birthday Card

Morning Everyone. Here is yet another birthday card for one of Rich's work mates. This is for Danny who is from Jamaica is the most laid back bloke you could ever meet. So I was surprised when hubby told me he was a Karate Dan. I was lucky enough to find this great image that was a free download.

I coloured it using a mixture of Copics & Promarkers. Then I found this great wall paper in one of my boxes. The Happy Birthday banner is wooden & I was give it by a local freecycler x Clare x

Me Again!!!

Yes I know I have made another card lol!! It is birthday week at Rich's work place. There are a total of 5 birthdays this month & 3 fall in a 7 day period. Tonight's card is using a sheet from CUP. It is a corner stacker but I have only used 2 layers.

I followed the sketch over at The Pixie Cottage. I like to be able to use sketches that doesn't have to be used with a stamped image.

On the inside of the card I used layer 3 from the sheet, added a rivet style effect using peel offs & added an area for a message. x Clare x

Daisy Doodles - Something Sweet

Afternoon everyone. I hope you have all escaped the snow today. I am running a little late with my post today but better late than never.
This time we would like to see Something Sweet from you. I decided to interpret this as food so I used a Xmas Pudding. There are a few photos in this post so please bear with me.

Firstly I printed off the image as A6 & coloured in using my Promarkers. I then scanned the finished image back onto my computer.

I then reduced the image in size & printed it out onto Safmat. Once I had done that I coloured in the cream again with a white Sukura Glaze pen. I then coloured over again with a normal white gel pen.

I then cut round it & stuck it onto a piece of brown card. Cut it into a tag shape, punched a hole & wrote the heating instructions on to it using a Black Sukura Glaze.

I then threaded a piece of string through the hole. I made my first ever Xmas Pudding a few weeks back & I tied a white ribbon with green Merry Christmas printed onto it round the basin. I then threaded the string through the hole of the tag & tied it on to the ribbon. x Clare x
