No, Steven hasn't moved out but he turned 20 today and I'm feeling slightly sad because 1) I don't have any teenagers left 2) it makes me feel old!! I know at 47 there's a possiblilty I could have another baby but do I really want to go there??? NO lol!!! I'll just have to be content and wait for my grandkids to come along :-D
Up until late yesterday afternoon I hadn't even started making Steven's card...isn't that always the case! I'd had a pretty full day and I was seeing Sadie last night so it was a case of throwing something together pretty quick. Quick??? Well, as quick as I do quick lol. I made most of it before I left for Sadie's and finished it off when I came back. I'm really chuffed with the way it turned out. I used Nesties that were covered in a thick layer of dust and now I've seen the result I'm definitely going to use them more often.
So here it is...what do you thunk?
I had planned to use my CB birthday embossing folder but when I spied the BG Max & Whiskers pp so cut that up though still fully intending to use my embossing folder then I forgot to lol. I love the colour combo...in fact I love anything that has brown in it :-D You're probably wondering where the LCI image is but hey...you're looking at it. I used the birthday cake from the
Add-On Magnum set mainly because I didn't have a lot of time, it didn't need much colouring and it shows the versatility of the set.
I've got some beautiful felt that I've been harbouring for months. Michele has been using felt a lot lately so I dug mine out and created this scalloped border with my PTI die. The felt is so soft and the colours wonderfully bright. I'm going to be selling it on my website soon so keep an eye out for it.
I stamped the image in the Indian Ink and it still didn't smudge when I coloured it with my Copics :-D I think I'm loving this ink over my Momento but I won't abandon it just yet.
I cut the happy birthday sentiment from Sentimental Numbers so I didn't have to fiddle with trying to get the words on different stars. It will be easy to line them up if I want them side by side again.
Finally a close up of my wonky stitching and the gorgeous felt. I think Steven was more interested in what was in the card but he said he liked it.
I'll be growing a few grey hairs over the weekend. He and a bunch of his friends are heading to Liverpool this afternoon to celebrate his birthday. Why he couldn't stay in Glasgow I don't know! They'll be back Sunday so I'll have a worrying weekend :-S
I hope you have a good weekend...what will you be up to?
Catch ya later x
