Good morning dear friends. I hope your Monday went well, my first day back at work went ok with lots to catch up with. It was lovely to see my friends and they are so fantastic and really appreciate me when I’m back which is so lovely. The day just whizzed by – which was fantastic – let’s hope the rest of the week is the same lol!
I don’t know if you remember me telling you but we were supposed to be having a new bathroom fitted whilst we were on our holiday but unfortunately our builder was still tied up on another job – well he finally arrived today so hopefully I will have a brand spanking new gorgeous bathroom very soon. I have waited so long for this new bathroom, other things always seemed to need to be done before it but yay it’s finally being replaced. I am so looking forward to seeing the finished result.
Ok, enough waffling, let’s get onto my card. There is a brand new challenge this morning over at passion for promarkers challenge which has been set by Debs. She has chosen the fun theme of “a pirate’s life for me” so we want to see all your pirate images and I’m sure you’ll have lots of fun with this one. As luck would have it I needed a card for an order for a 5 year old boy so this theme was perfectly timed for me. Here is my card (which is A5 in size):
The cute image is from DigiStamp Boutique and is called “pirate Josh and parrot” and I obviously coloured him with promarkers. The papers have been in my stash for years and are by sandylion and I also came across the matching stickers whilst hunting around for embellishments. The flash has glared on the smaller round stickers (which are coins by the way) but IRL they look really effective and perfect for a child’s card I think. I added a computer generated sentiment and some natural twine from SU and my card was finished. I hope the little boy liked it!
Our sponsor this week is DigiStamp Boutique and Sally-Ann is offering one lucky winner 6 digi images of their choice. As you know I love DSB images and there are so many gorgeous images to choose from. The winner will be spoilt for choice.
The rest of the design team have created amazing samples once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
