Phil and Nic Look Away NOW!

Hi there.

I've decided to take a chance in posting this.  My OH's brother and his wife have just moved into a new house (in Brisbane, Australia) and I'm hoping that one of the last things they do is to set up their pc and connect it to the net.  If I'm right then they won't see this card before they get it.  If I'm wrong - DON'T LOOK!!!!!!

I couldn't think what to use on this and then had a flash of inspiration - they sent us the Estate Agents blurb for the house complete with pictures so I downloaded the main one onto PaintShop Pro and changed it to black and white (it's supposed to be Sepia but it doesn't look like it)  I found the sentiment and followed a sketch for the layout.

OK - they should have stopped reading by now..... here's the card....

Thankyou Card

Hi again,

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend.  I decided to do a challenge card - which I would have posted last night but my ****** computer threw a wobbly. 

I'm not sure if it shows up properly here but the wings on the fairy and the butterflies are all raised.  I quite liked the idea of trying to make it look as if the fairy was sitting on the edge strip.  I hope you like it.

Musician - Not me!

Hi again, thanks for taking the time to look at my blog and I hope you've all had a great holiday weekend.
Chris reminded me that it's his Dad's birthday this week so I thought I'd better get my skates on and get his card made.  His dad has many talents - the main one being painting but I thought I'd try to be a bit different and remembered that he used to love playing the guitar.  He hasn't played for a while so hopefully this might give him the notion. 
Before I show you the card I have to point out to the musicians amongst you that I can't play a note nor can I read music which will explain why I managed to stick the music notes border onto my card upside down - you would have thought the numbers would have given me a clue wouldn't you LOL.  Why is it you only notice these details after you've firmly stuck it down?  "D'oh" to quote Homer Simpson!

Card blank - stash
White card embossed with D'vine swirls folder
Music notes and treble clef - google
Sentiment - Birds Cards matted onto card coloured with a black marker


Thanks for looking.
