Oops! It all looks a bit crooked now but it's too late....... no time to do another.
I don't usually make cards 'to order' but my colleagues insisted I made one for one of the chaps at work who is retiring tomorrow. I decided this image, bought here in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, looked suitably 'retired'. By the time I'd coloured him with my Copics I realised he would only just fit in the largest of my circle dies so no framing was possible (I really should learn to think things through!). I love this cheers paper for men's cards and I'm sure you'll have seen it here before. The backing paper is from an old 'Away in a Manger' download, mat gold Hobbycraft card backs that, and the sentiment was printed in word and raised with a foam pad. The only other embellishment Craftwork Card Candy (before it was renamed for the USA market). I do hope Terry likes it......
I'd like to enter it in the MSE Animaltastic Challenge
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Keep it Simple
OSSAT - One for the Boys
Oh & just before I go here's a photo of my stash purchases at Harrogate. My favourite LOTV images, MS punches, Craftwork Sentiments, images, yummy coloured Stickles, Candi (with stars on) and a couple of ink pads. Now I just need to get something made with it all!
Thank you for looking
