Grandsons Birthday Card

Here we go again the days are running away without me already..I looked at the

calendar & gasped..my G/sons B/day is on Wed.. Sunday is usually a bit of a busy

day for me, but I managed to get this card ready, then  catastrophe struck, my camera

gave up its life after I had taken few photos..nothing would bring it back to life..

This pic isnt very .good but as its now in the post nothing I could do. 

I dont really like this sport collection & havnt used any until now .. I decided I would use super man Edwin..

I have called him Bradley..after my G/son.. I cut a letter B on the cricut & stuck it on the vest.

I'm not happy with this effort but decided to blog it all the same. time was against me for this one..

 The DP is Nitwits..(all spaced out)  I used my greeting card factory program & layered onto the DP

anything to save time. I used glossy photo paper for a shine..Edwin in coloured with prismas &

glossy accents to his boots belt & goggles..sentiment comp. generated, inside is decorated too

but you dont want to see the sentiment nanaseaside (yes thats what my G/children really call me)

its too sloppy..lol..



challs for me card

Just Magnolia 138    Anything goes ( or use something new) Stamp.

Magnolia down Under   anything goes

Simply Magnolia chall   Celebrate

Addicted to stamps chall  January blues..use Blue..

Card Crafters circle chall   make it colourful


Finishing on a happy note I had to go into Scarborough this morning with son & came back  with a new camera

( I found the receipt for the old one it was 8yrs old..)all I have to do is now is learn how to use it.lol..

thanks for stopping by see you soon.

smiles Christine xx
