Firstly today I would like to wish you all a Happy St Patricks day, which also means I would like to wish my Uncle and Emma a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Emma just to totally embarrass you, here's a pic of the birthday girl who got a cake at our weekend gathering.
You can give me a thump at the next crop!
Back to crafting and this was the other card I made this weekend which I am entering into the Quixotic paperie Challenge.
The challenge was to use a Greeting farm stamp and alter it. Here is my entry:
I love this stamp from the "Happy Day" set. Oh and I so enjoyed colouring it in with my copic's. I have combined it with the Basic Grey range archaic, including the chipboard and buttons...which just goes fantastico! I have distressed the edges with TH ink vintage photo and added a couple of rub ons from stock.
I love these papers and have been coverting them for a while not wanting to used them...sad I know but any fella crafters out there will know that we all have our favourite papers that we don't want to cut into!!
I have altered the stamp by adding eyelashes and stripes to the t-shirt on the little boy image, I wanted to keep it simple as I think the stamp says it all really.
My youngest boy is not 6 till May but I'd like to thank the guys over on the Quixotic challenge blog as now I am organised early with a card for his birthday...must not loose it between now and then which always happens if I put something away somewhere safe, or is that just me?!*
At the moment at school my little boy is doing a project on dinosaurs, and is loving every minute, telling me the other day that they'd measured their teacher and that she was taller but not wider than a Veloicraptor, good to know, lol!
My eldest absolutely loved dinosaurs when little so here's hoping all those plastic toys will get a second outing now.
