My friend Elaine at work asked me to make this card for her nephew, and with every thing happening i forgot, so i created it a little too quickly for my liking... i like to take my sweet time... but here goes... I used my wonderful friend Claudia's sketch, she created it for Friday Sketchers so i thought I'd enter as I've not entered a sketch for ages...I used an old Edwin from last year... and the brick wall i have to tell you, Claudia has an amazing tutorial on copic colouring a brick wall on her blog, as you can see it works with inks too, she used copics but i wanted to use my SU Inks so i followed her tutorial with the inks and i think it worked, i just have to follow her tutorial on faces now...LOL I used Little Yellow Bicycle DP Zach's Life Collection, (the majority of which i distressed) i love this DP, it's very boy....if you know what i mean... I used my nestabilities again.. and the SU die Top Note i got last year to create the shapes on this sketch, i had to use a rectangle card as my friend needed a large card and wanted it A4 fold.. I've been at the sewing machine again... i think I've created two or three cards this year and not used it.... I'm now officially a Janome Mini freak.... The numbers are chip board and from my stash.. i used my quickutz...Yaaaayyy the first time in i don't know how long... i cut the game controller from the DP then used pens to colour the buttons, i then used Anita's glaze to make it shine, then the same with the TV to make the screen shine... The Calender stamp is just a cheap little one by Sagem..but i thinks it's really neat..
Inside i used the same DP with some craft CS stitched onto Bazzill then two die cut plates for adding sentiments to... i finished by stamping Happy Birthday in four places inside the card...My wonderful friend Ila sent me these small sentiment sets last summer and they come in so handy plus they fit into the SU Hodgepodge Book Plates... thank you again sweetie..The back has just a distressed piece of DP with a circles cut using Nestabilities from craft and Bazzil CS with two Quickutz footballs added..

My friend Heidi challenged me to do the Photo Challenge just before i was absent for a couple of weeks, i know you've all seen it and probably had it so I'm not going to pass it on, however I'm going to join in.. so as not to be a spoil sport. I have to pick my sixth picture from my sixth folder and say what it is.... Boy did i regret that when i opened the sixth folder....so here it is...... I have to tell you this is a rare occurrence... there are not many pictures of me but this one was taken about four years ago while we were on holiday in Spain (Cambrils if i remember rightly) i hate having my picture taken, i am a complete photo phobic...LOL OMG i can't believe i just did that....Do you think i look like my little brother...hehehehe
Well that's all for tonight folks...
