Ethan's Birthday Card

Good evening from a chilly Maryland .....  Just a quick post tonight .....

I wanted to get this card on my blog and into the My Mum's Craft Shop Stars and Stripes Challenge before it closes.

The card has been made for my good friend Vicki's son Ethan who turned 9 last Friday.  We'll finally get a chance to see him tomorrow when Vicki heads on over for our weekly 'play' (ie colouring in session lol).  I've been so sick with this flu that I've been MIA for the last week or so .... not such a great thing in school holidays!!  Needless to say, Isabella is really looking forward to Ethan and Charlotte coming for the day ... not to mention Jensen the pupy lol.

Anyway, back to the card .... I've coloured "Hip Kody" from Some Odd Girl with my Prismacolor pencils and solvent and I must admit that I like the way that he pops right off the card ... even Gray and Isabella gave great reviews when they saw him on the finished card.  Lets just hope that Ethan likes it too ....
I hope everyone is enjoying the school holidays and the somewhat nice sunny days we've been having and until next time ........


Paper:  SU! Kiwi Kiss CS, DCWV Retro Prints PP, other PP from stash
Stamp:  "Hip Kody" from Some Odd Girl
Other:  Handmade stars, rubon, coloured with Prisma and solvent

Sweet Blossom

Hi there on this glorious Saturday afternoon .....

I have discovered this absolutely brilliant UK website, Cuddly Buddly, that sells a variety of scrapbooking and card making products, including stamps, both rubber/clear and digi and they are absolutely gorgeous!!!  I have absolutely fallen in love with the "Wee Stamps" range and this is "Sweet Blossom" .... isn't she just soooo cute?  You really need to jump on over and have a look at their website .... you won't be disappointed.

Well, I was just blog hopping and found that Cuddly Buddly have just launched their very 1st challenge at "Let's Keep Creating" and the theme is from Katie - "A Brand New ......." (Baby, New Year, Wedding, stamp/product etc).  I was sooooo excited because I had just finished colouring this image and then the card just came together .....

My "Brand New ...." is this gorgeous digi (that I just bought a few days ago) and the copics that I used to colour her.  I bought a few digi images and there are still quite a few more that I would like to get.

I am now off to find some other challenges I may be able to enter this sweet girl into.

Hope you like the card and I hope you have a great weekend.

Ciao for now
