Hi everyone. Not been able to craft much this past couple of weeks,
due to being so popular with friends and family ! LOL
I'm not complaining though, I'm lucky in that my boys live close enough to be able to come by at almost a moment's notice. I must admit also, that the medication for the Lymphoma is causing a side effect or two as well and I've not felt 100% on a few occasions. Not complaining! I count myself as lucky, I can live with it...literally! Ha Ha!
Anyway, I digress, as usual...
here's the card I made for the nephew of a great pal of mine down in Hampshire.
I CASED THIS amazing card by Theresa Mumba.
I loved creating that scene and hope to do more now I know I can achieve a credible result.
I wish now I had chosen a different stamp set for the foreground. I think it's an overdose, but as it's done and dusted, I'll just have to bear it in mind for future reference.
I cut the '50' with my fabulous Expression (which I'm still scared of, but getting braver, lol).
It's 90% Kraft card and Memento Rich Cocoa for the sponging and stamping.
The lovely sentiment is a stamp by Inkylicious and describes the recipient perfectly.
I'll be back soon with a 40th card I'm in the process of making for my eldest son, who will be 40 on Saturday. OMG!! Where HAVE those years gone!!!
Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by. I always appreciate your visit!
