Hope you are all well and had a good weekend. I spent most of Saturday and Sunday afternoon watching the Tour De France. And well done to Bradley from the UK on his victory. Let's hope that we can now win a few golds in the Olympics that start this weekend. Really looking forward to Friday and the opening ceremony and the start of the games. I don't watch a lot of sport but I do enjoy athletics. So I will apologise now if I am not around blogging as much over the next few weeks.
But, wonder of wonders, I actually managed to get a card made when I got home from work tonight. This is a card for my nephew Jack. It is his birthday in August but as my Sister has asked me to do a couple for him as well I thought I had better get started.
Like a lot of youngsters these days Jack is an accomplished gamer. He likes nothing more than playing on his Nintendo or the X-Box so this image from Lily of the Valley was just perfect. I coloured the image with promarkers and cut it out using one of my Spellbinders dies. I then inked around the edges while the image was still in the die to create a border effect. I used kraft card for the matting and the papers were from my stash. The papers were all distressed using my distress tool. I made a little banner and stamped each piece of bunting to show his name. I then attached this with some string. I stamped the sentiment on a little tag. I also did some faux stitching round each piece of bunting and the tag and used some distress ink. The finishing touch were three cut out little stars with a button in the centre of each.
Had better get my thinking cap on now as I have three more to make for him. I do know how to challenge myself lol.
