You might recognise that face!

I have made a card for an old friend as he turns 18 next week. I have used old photos of us when we were littlens.
I haven't made very many male cards so I know this isn't brilliant but I thought i would leave it reasonably simple.

- Craftwork cards 6x6 card blank
- do crafts black card stock
- metallic birthday wrapping paper
- sentiment printed on pc

I would like to enter this in to Di's snippet challenge as you can see I have used a tiny snippet of black card to create my stars (see pic).

Thanks for looking!

[edit] Ingredients:
- Dovecraft Teahouse Papers
- Papermania GREEN card (although it looks yellow in the photograph)
- Flowers from WHSmith
- Sentiment from Paulette

Blog design

Hi all,

I have had a couple of comments around the size of the photos I post and I have just edited the majority of my posts so that the cards are easily seen now rather than just half of the photo.

Sorry about that!

I hope to make a card later on so will post that up :-)

Hope you all had a great weekend.

Teddy Flower

Hi all, how are you on this fine sunny day?
I made this card last night as I was feeling summery!

For some reason the photograph makes the flower look uneven but I can assure you it is circular all the way around :-)

I was looking at how people had coloured the teddy and thought I would go for something different and make him look white which I quite liked in the end!

- LOTV Teddy Flower Stamp coloured with Promarkers

- Backing papers - I have lost the front sheet so can't remember where these are from! I think they are papermania?!

- With love sentiment cut out from an old Birthday card

- Tissue flower made with brown tissue paper

- Ribbon and gems from stash

Thanks for looking :-)
