At last a card I am pleased with, I have had a really hetic and horrible time since Wednesday and have had to rush all my cards and projects since then, I am very unhappy with them and feel like taking them all off of the blog, I usually take a lot of time with my cards and like to have a perfect finish, and I know they havn't been up to standard so apologies.
Anyway back to this card, I have coloured the lovely Christmas Tilda with Copics, the backing papers are from the Making Memories Fa La La collection available from Crafts u Love, I have embossed the red card with the Snowflake Folder in the CB, The fancy red flowers are Prima and the poinsettias are from Poppicrafts. The little bead caps have Emerald Stickles added to the middle. Hope you like this one.
The theme this week on Cute Card Thursday, is Cheers, I just love the challenges the girls at CCT come up with and try never to miss a week, Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and see the great cards from the DT.
Don't you just love this Charlie 007 from Whiff of Joy, what a great mans card it makes and just right for this challenge. It is my eldest son Matthews birthday next week and as he thinks of himself as "a man about town" I thought this would make a perfect card for him.
Charlie has been coloured with distress inks. The layout is an adaptation of one of Katharinas sketches which just seems to fit this image perfectly, I cut the image, a grey and a black oval with Nesties and layered them up, I used a Stempleglede swirl stamp on the edges of the image oval. The papers are Bohemia and Scarlet Letter, I have not got a plain corner die (anyone with suggestions of where to get one please), so had to make this corner by eye. The sentiment which is also a WOJ stamp has been embossed with Silver Embossing powder and cut with Nesties. Buttons from Stash.
I would like to take this chance to thank all the wonderful people that leave such lovely comments on here, when things are not so good these comments really give me a lift and mean so much, love you all. I will REALLY try to cath up with you all today, thanks again for sticking with me
