Hi there! If you are a follower of mine, I apologize for being MIA for almost 2 weeks - just some family matters needed to be addressed and crafting had to be put in the back burner. I was also in the midst of a vicious cold that kept circling my family :(. All is better now though and so I'm slowly getting back to crafting. If you're just visiting me for the first time, welcome and I hope you come back soon!
Today I made a card for a little boy in my DD's first grade class who is having his 7th birthday party this Saturday. The base of the card is a 5 x 5 Kraft paper. The image is from a digital bundle I purchased from Stretch 'n Bubbles back in December before they closed down the site. I am trying my hands at coloring digital images, so if you're a stamper try not to giggle too much at my coloring, okay? LOL! I used Prismacolor colored pencils I got from Michaels. I really need to work on my coloring and shading, but I did enjoy coloring as it was so relaxing (who knew!). I then cut the image and the mat behind it with Nestability dies I have had for a long time. I added a strip of blue cardstock behind the image and its mat - it is embossed with the Spots and Dots CB folder. The sentiment is computer generated using the Boyz are Gross font. I then added 3 Card Candis on the bottom to finish off the front.
Here is a shot of the inside of the card.
That's it for me for today! "See" you all again soon!
