Dont Faint.......but I made another card!!

I know!!  Im full of surprises this week.  First I make an Industrial Steampunk Metal Guitar and now.....A CARD?  What is up with me?  Where have all the flowers gone?? .......Is that a song??

As you know it was my wee brothers 11th birthday on the 1st.  And I can confirm.......HE LOVED THE GUITAR.......Wooooowhoooooo!  And out of all the goodies he got AND I mean goodies, to name a few....an android ipad thingy, an ipod shuffle music thingmabobber (see, Im very techie as you can tell!)......the first thing he ran into the house with to show our Daddy was......THE GUITAR...Yeah! Oh, I know.....I can hear you "My God, that kid got some presents for his 11th Birthday".....but, thats the joy of having much older brothers and sisters.  Theres 21 years between me and Corey and the least amount of years is between him and our T which is nearly10 years. So, we pretty much spoil him on his birthday.

But I was pretty chuffed how much he loved the guitar.  In fact, ma wee Mamma loved it so much that she suggested to Corey that it would look great in the living-room so when he was playing his guitar, he could admire it.  Me thinks ma wee Mamma has stolen her 11 year old sons birthday present, heehee.

 I was actually about to leave the house the other day and do the unthinkable....BUY A CARD for his birthday!! I know, I know....but Ive made it quite clear.....I dont like making cards!  But the postman came to the door with 2 little pressies for me.

Mina, from Pink Puds kindly took pity on my lack of patterned papers and sent me some down.  Thank you so much Mina, Im so over the moon with it all.  And then Sandy, from Sandy's Crafty Bits sent me a few wee bits and pieces as a thank you for winning my 2nd prize blog candy.  Thank you so much Sandy.  So, once I saw the papers and the image, I thought "Damn it!!!  I have to make a bloody card now!!".......Yeah....you can tell I was just delighted!

So I got out my Copics and coloured in this wee dude.  Used my scalloped square nesties and the paper that Mina kindly sent me.  Thankfully there was one sheet that was practically a card layout, I only added a bit of ribbon, an image, bit of layering and a sentiment to it really.  Im crap at colouring so please excuse the childlike colouring in!





I love this wee dude and his wee sign is so cute.  I tell you what, after the trauma of making another card...thats 2 now in the last few months, I could do with what he's drinking!!  I wont be making another card again for a longgggggggg time!

Thats it for now folks.  Im not going to ramble on ..."For once" I hear you sigh!  I have a few other bits and pieces that I may be showing very soon.  Maybe even try and squeeze in another flower tutorial .....maybe.

Toodles Noodles.

  9. Hey Lee - you gonna take up cardmaking fulltime? You should you know, this is brilliant!! I love all those little details that you think we haven't noticed - the inked edges, the beautifully lined up scallops, the perfect colour matching between your alien and the background layers, etc. etc. Fab card! You're fantastic :) So glad your guitar is being well and truly loved and appreciated too - it definitely deserves pride of place in the living room. Maddy x
