When I was browsing through Rick's collection of digis I came across this image and knew I had to use it. I think at heart, many of us are mad crafters and this image really captures that feeling. I printed off a couple of images (varying the size) and coloured them with Copic markers. Once coloured, I cut them out and found the one to fit this card. I decided to make her have mad green hair (wish I was young enough to get away with a style like this) and colour the dress (straight-jacket) grey. If you look at the digi you will see that each paintbrush has a colour - which is what I used to stamp the brush stroke image on the card. I finished with a bold, simple sentiment. I've left the card inside blank for my own message. The brushstroke image comes from one of Stampin' Up! new sets which I think is fabulous and goes so well with the digi.

I know it's been a bit quite around here lately, so I thought I'd say thanks to everyone for dropping by and leaving such lovely comments on my Birthday Surprise post - they are all very much appreciated. I told you that I'm having a great time with my Mum here, well last weekend we headed over to Grand Rapids. I took Mum to see The Glenn Miller Orchestra playing with the Grand Rapids Symphony at DeVos Theatre. It was a wonderful afternoon and we had a great time. Here's a clip of the band playing In The Mood - fab!
That's all for now - see you soon.
