Good afternoon Blogger friends..
Hope you're having a lovely weekend.
Last night we went out for a lovely meal to celebrate my son's 16th Birthday. He loved his basketball card. Last year I never got around to making him a card and I felt sooo bad. So Christmas cards were been put on hold so I could make it. Looks like I will be buying Christmas ones again.
I'm starting to feel old now. Brandon's 16 and 6 ft , Leonie will be 18 in March and Frazer who's 14 realised yesterday (much to his delight) that he was taller than me!
Today's card is one I've made for my Mum's birthday which is in a few weeks. See I told you no Christmas cards were being made. Lol.
I've used a gorgeous digi stamp from Make It Crafty. It took me absolutely ages to colour her. I used a great tutorial over at MIC by the super talented Alyce (Kit and Clowder). If you've not paid her blog a visit then you really should - her creations are beautiful and her colouring amazing.
Now my colouring is not on Alyce's level , but I'm really pleased with my first attempt.
So here she is ...
I really enjoyed colouring her. So much that I went and bought some more of their digis.
Here's a close up of her.
I've used the sketch over at Sketch Saturday for my card.
The papers are all distressed with Walnut stain and the image is coloured with copics. I've used my new Tim Holtz 'On the edge Butterflies' die, and also bought the snowflakes one too.
I've also decorated the inside too..
