Morning Girls, well the sun has gone to sleep at the moment lets hope it wakes up again as it looks quite cloudy outside. Hubby is just of to post a couple of parcels things he sold for me on Ebay so they will be on their way presently.
I got a bit of a shock at the weekend, as I have four of my grandchildren coming to stay in the summer holidays, the two boys of my youngest daughter Clare for the first week, and my middle daughter Sarah's two one boy and one girl are due to come for the following week. The two boys will go onto their other grandparents, luckily they will come and pick them up. But to be honest this means complete turmoil in my home, I have to clear my craft room out for them to sleep on the futon settee, and of course we also will have to clear my hubby's office as well so that the lad can sleep on a mattress on the floor the second week. So my answer is to try and get all my birthday cards sorted before they come, and thats what I did yesterday, I picked out from my stash all the right cards put inserts into them and then put them in envelopes all ready to post, guess what Im now all ready upto September, pretty good dont you think?
Anyway enough of my woes, my card today has been created for my friends grandson who will also be two in September, and I felt this other Mo's "Terrible Two's" image was ideal for him (some of you might like to find these images heres the link for you Mo's Digital Webshop), Ive printed him onto white card and coloured him with my copic pens. The base card is a 8"x 8" white card as its rather a bigger image than I normally print, I needed the extra room, the papers are from the Beeb Beeb downloads from Nitwit Downloads, a really vibrant set of papers.
I used a sketch I found amoung my stash sorry I carnt remember where I downloaded from but thank you who ever it was, the first paper is a white design which has multi sized spots on, and the second and third papers were punched along the edge with the party hat border punch from Martha Stewart, the final mount is a striped paper mounted onto blue card and stuck across the other two. My mounted image has been stuck on top and the sentiment is one I created on my computer and then punched out with one of my label dies and two brads popped through the two holes. Ive finished of with some buttons, two blue ones and one teddy bear one, and some confettii HB stuck randomly on the blue check paper.
Finally thank you Lyn for pointing me in the way of the "Wish you were Shirley" font and I hope that you all have a wonderful day, guess what the suns just come out again.
