Sunday 5 May 2013


Good morning to you all hope if you are in the UK you are enjoying a lovely Bank Holiday weekend.  The weather here in Blackpool is a bit mixed today, rainy and sunny! Fingers crossed for tomorrow its  supposed to be 18!!

I have made a card today just for me.  I have been trying to get ahead with DT work so I have just been concentrating on that but thought this morning I would have a little break from that.  So here is my card:

I have used one of Stephanie's adorable dinosaurs from her Dino-Mite collection which is available here from Clearly Besotted. You get loads of sentiments in the set too which I have used here.  I stamped directly onto the card but it is linen card stock and it was a bit of a devil to do, this is my sixth attempt!  I did have to fill a bit in with Copic Marker - but don't tell anyone!  I have coloured him with my Copics and just had to add some Glossy Accents to those eyes!  I cut him out with my Lil Inkers Photo Die and popped him on some foam squares.  I embossed the background linen card.  The paper is MME Fly a Kite and I have edged it with Cheery Lynns Tiny Expandable Borders.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Paper Creator's Craft - For the Boys
2 Sisters - Bingo (Embossing, Image, Die Cuts/Punches)
Delicious Doodles - Something for the Boys
Moving Along With the Times - One for the Guys
Shelly's Images - Kid Theme
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - Animals

Well that's all from me for today, back to the DT work! Hope you have a lovely day whatever you are doing and get some crafty time too! Take care xx
