This week's challenge at Simon Says is "Happy Mail" - you have to make and send a card to a child at either "Post Pals" or "Make a Child Smile". I've made this card to send to Daniel A at Post Pals. I've made a card for a boy as I always worry that the girls get sent more - although this probably isn't the case at all!
I've bought a few more Tim Holtz Distress Inks - I just couldn't resist! I've spent a few happy hours in my craft room making lots of mess and having lots of fun too. I've used them to colour this image and also to distress around the edges of the card and paper. I stamped two images and decoupaged a second layer on his shirt and hair.
I wanted the sentiment to say "You're a Star" but I don't have a stamp for this. I must download my printer software so I can print my own sentiments.
Here's what I used to make this card:
Stamp: Elzybells "Boy Footie", Elzybells "Family Messages"
DP: Die Cuts with a View
Colour Medium: Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Accessories: brad from stash
Tools: Spellbinders Mega Scalloped Rectangles (large).
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at this card.
A very happy weekend to you all.
