Happy birthday, man!


This is a birthday card for one of my great nephews who is a Simpsons fan (hope he still is!) - it's his birthday today and I know he's received this,, so it's safe to blog.

The top and bottom are offcuts from a piece of mirror card that had been embossed with one of the 8 x 8 embossing folders from the textures bundle I bought recently (the beauty of an 8 x 8 folder is that there will be snippets over after making a 6 x 6 card). The sentiment strip across the middle is another offcut, with some washi tape added and the Simpsons picture from the internet.


This is for:

The cheerful stamp pad challenge 105 week 2


This is my design card for the cheerful stamp pad challenge 105 week 2, where the theme  is 'B stands for bear'. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and you can join in our challenge here.

For my card I've used Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet 'boo boo bear'. I coloured with my newly-acquired Chameleon pens (please be gentle as I've only just started using these). I tore around a perspex oval template and brushed the edges with brushed corduroy distress ink. The background sentiment papers are offcuts. A few fabric hearts were added as it looked too plain without them.
