Simon Says ...................... Animals

Hi everyone. I don't know where the time has gone but it's over a week since my last post. I haven't had much time for crafting and have only made two cards this week. My son has made the transition from a cot to a bed and now it is virtually impossible to persuade him to have an afternoon nap - so there goes my hour or two of crafting time each day! Love him as I do, I did so enjoy my little bit of 'me time'.

I am entering one of the cards in this week's Simon Says challenge which is Animals.

I think this will be a good card for a man which I'm pleased about as making cards for males is something I find a bit of a challenge.

The stamp I have used in from Elzybells and is called "In the Dog House". I've coloured this with Copic Ciaos. The papers are "Die Cuts with a View" and I've inked around the edge of the DP with brown ink. The ribbon is from the "Anitas" range.

I also decorated the inside of this card. I left the middle blank for my message as the sentiment is already on the front of the card. The sentiments are also from Elzybells from a great set called "Everyday Greetings".

Oh, by the way, I got my Memento inks, Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa. I regularly buy craft supplies from a lovely lady who runs a shop on ebay called Evandale Crafts and was delighted to see she had these inks back in stock.

Have a good weekend everyone and, if you are in the UK like me, enjoy the fantastic weather we look like having.

Thank you so much for dropping by and taking a look at my card. It means a lot to me.
