Happy Dirtday!

I got the 'I Dig You' stamp set from Stampin' Up as I had a bit of gap in my collection for little boys, seeing as most of my family are male I thought I should sort that out.

I am entering this card into 2 challenges, Dynamic Duos #41 and Pals Paper Arts #153 sketch challenge. I have changed the sketch about a little as I made a slight boo-boo and skuffed my dotty paper so I had to cover up the mishap with the main image, ooops! 

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting, Lorry :o) xx

Here are the colours and the sketch

And here is my effort

Stamps: I Dig You and Henry from Stampin' Up!
BG paper: Island Indigo plan paper from Stampin' Up! and patterned paper made on my computer and printed at home.
Dies: Classic Circle Nestabilities.

SCIC #63 Entry

I have had a bit of a break lately, I received a random rather unpleasant email slagging off my cards and saying that 5-6 years olds could do much better. This knocked me back for a bit and puzzled me slightly as I'm not even sure who this person is or how they got hold of one of my cards, must have been from one of the charities I give them to as I don't sell them myself. Anyway, I had to remind myself why I made cards in the first place – as an escape and a bit of me time from looking after my autistic son, not to make money or please the masses, it's just my therapy!

Enough of the moaning and time to get back on the horse, so to speak. I am entering this card into the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #63.

Thanks for looking and happy crafting, Lorry :o) xx

Here is the sketch

And here is my effort

Stamps: Feeling Sentiments and Clockworks from Stampin' Up! and Happy Birthday from Art Impressions.

Embellishments: Liquid Pearls from Ranger in Bisque and embroidery thread from my stash.
