... yesterday I showed you one of the cards that I've made for my nephew's birthday. Today, I'm sharing the other one, which will be going to Gareth from his Nanna (my Mum). I've used the colours from this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge - PDCC115, lovely natural, earthy colours and, as it's a guy's card, I'm also submitting it to the One Layer Wednesday - OLW75 where Susan would like us to make a card for "those odd humans with an aversion to flowers and a fondness for tractors and beer". Yes, she does mean guys!!
I started off by stamping the square border, the cowboy and the sentiment. I then masked off the central area and stamped the patterned borders to resemble a cowboy blanket. I added a couple of accents in the corners of the square. The colours are perfect for the cowboy theme. Both this card and the collage one will be in the post tomorrow.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Way Out West, Back in the Saddle, Frame-It
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Sahara Sand, Early Espresso; Distress - Peeled Paint; Memento - London Fog
Accessories: Card from stash
When Kathryn got home from school yesterday, the first thing she saw in the kitchen was my lovely new teal handbag. Well, it is hard to miss!! She picked it up and said "Mine, mine, mine!!!" and when I said "No, mine!" - she wasn't a happy girl - and when she saw my nails - well, let's just say that the green-eyed monster arrived!!! Kath absolutely loves teal and she has beautiful nails (I didn't when I was her age) and she desperately wants to have them painted teal!!! Perhaps this weekend I'll do her nails!!
Before I go I must say Hi and Welcome to a new follower - Loli Juan - really pleased to have you join me. That's all for now. Off to do some tidying!! Yes, I know - I must be feeling unwell :))))) See you soon.
