Well, I hope everyone is well and happy - and probably tucked up in bed as I write this post at silly o'clock in the morning. I'm hoping to finish it before I nod off in front of the laptop at my desk. Do you ever do that and find that you have left your finger on a key so have loads of characters across your page or whatever you are doing? e.g. lllllllllllllllllllllllllllkkkkkkkkkkklllllllllllllllllllllllk
That in mind, this will actually be rather a quick post all things considered (i.e. I want to go to bed)!!!
I sat at my desk a couple of days ago with July's birthday/card list in hand, and thought that I'd try and
a) remember to send a card and
b) not start it the afternoon of the potential recipients birthday
That in mind, I set about making a birthday card from my little bro who's birthday it is on the 20th - although I have some in between too, but will be easier to make for.
In addition - I thought again (no smoke coming out of my ears either!)... I thought that I'd try and combine making his card and entering the sketch challenge - the one I told you about in my previous post HERE.
Here is the sketch:
And here is the card - but minus the sentiment - which has blown off my table when I had the conservatory door open... (whats happened to the weather? - its like back end of October out here tonight. All raining and blistery - mind you - it always sounds worse on the conservatory roof!)
Anyway, I'll put the sentiment on either when I find it, or make a new one.
DigiStamp Boutique, purchased recently. The papers are all free one from various places - apart from the orange which is a Funky Hand design paper (available in many colours) from the Papercraft Factory CD ROM - Craft the Year Away. If I want something bold, colourful or striking - or all three, I always turn to the FH Cd's as I'm hard pressed not to find something I need.
As you'll probably know - the dot thingies are card candi by Craftwork Cards - and can be purchase from most craft shops.
Right then, I'm going to enter my card in to the following challenge re the sketch above:
Fetch - a Sketch which can be found HERE
This is an exciting challenge to enter because it is the very first one for this brand new site - set up by a couple of my fellow DT members, Jenny and Ruth. I wish them every success with the challenge and find it exciting that I'm entering their very first one. If you have a minute or so, please go and wish them luck and lots of success. The first challenge has bought some rather generous sponsorship so its worth a try.
That's it from me then. My neck is getting really stiff and my pillows and bed are calling!
Hope you leave a comment to say you've been - its interesting to see if people still read my lil' ol' blog!!!
