Anyone for Anya? & a card for Daniel

b'day card (6)

I’m cutting it fine for the Anyone for Anya? challenge this week.  I loved the sketch and was determined to make a card but I had to make sure I got all my DT cards finished first :)  I used TGF image called ‘sheriff Ian’ (available from dies to die for) and coloured him with my promarkers (I used the blender pen to create the checks on his shirt).  The papers are DCWV , the blue card is from the papermill shop and the kraft card is from elzybells.  This is the first time I’ve used kraft card but I’ve seen so many people use it (especially Elizabeth from elzybells) that I thought I’d give it a go….and I have to say I really like the effect.  The sentiment was created on the pc and cut out with my circle nesties and the stars were cut in the CB with a quickutz cookie cutter.  The adhesive stones are PM.  It’s hard to see in the photo but my card is about 13 layers thick, so you can imagine how weighty it is!

As I said in the title this card is also for Daniel who is the son of Claire (whose blog is craftyc’s crafting library).  Daniel is autistic and he loves to receive handmade cards so Claire is asking for cards to be sent to Daniel for his upcoming birthday on 12th November.  Just click on the link to go to Claire’s blog and read all the details, plus she has some awesome candy up for grabs too ;)  Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Halloween….hope you all have a fun evening trick or treating :)
