Last weekend I took some time out in order to sit at my desk...I didn't realise quite how much I'd missed it and just how therapeutic it is! I managed to join in with some challenges that have been neglected by myself of late...woohoo!
Today is the turn of the Fusion challenge! The sketch and the inspiration were so cool that I went with both, and here they are...
I decided to use the colours from the inspiration image and the white-on-blue background and went with a literal take on the sketch...this is how it turned out...
Some of you may remember that I was making a bundle of birthday cards to send to my Mum for her to have on standby to give to her friends. Well, I made and sent them to her, and bless her, she loved them :) (that's the best thing about Mother's, they're seldom disappointed :)) When I spoke to her on the phone the other day she mentioned that a male friend of hers birthday was coming up soon. I couldn't remember whether any of the cards I sent her would be suitable for him, so I told her I'd make one specially. He has a good sense of humour (which is lucky!) and is going to be turning 64, so Mother and I decided that this sentiment would be ideal!! He he! Mean, I know :)
I never really got into the bunting/banner trend when it was, well, trendy...but here I found myself making a little bunting for this card...talk about being a little behind! :) I'm actually quite pleased with how it turned out and hopefully Keith will enjoy his card too :)
I am hoping to join in with all the other challenges I love this week too...I think I'll have to train my other half to cook dinner and wash up so that I have more time to craft! Wish me luck!! ;)
Thanks for stopping by guys ;)
