It’s been a while…

Since I last blogged. I have been full of the dreaded lurgy with an added bonus of conjunctivitis.  Feeling better now, and have lots of cards to make, due to being unable to craft with my dodgy eyes.
 
I made this card a while ago, but couldn’t show it until the recipients birthday had passed.  The brief was for a man who loved gardening, flowers and bright colours. So I came up with this card.

 
I stamped a gardening teddy and coloured him in with Promarkers, I used a deckle edged ruler to create the edge on the “mud” and “grass”. I used paper flowers and buttons to create the scene, I am really pleased with the result and I hope the recipient was too 🙂
 
Ingredients
Paper from stash
Personal Impressions stamp
Coloured with Promarkers
Die cuts Whimsy, Memory box and Die’namics
Buttons and flowers from stash.
 
I have quite a few cards to make to catch up with a week of no crafting, so no doubt there will be more blog posts later today 🙂


I would like to enter him into the following challenges;
