First of all can I say hello to my new followers, thank you for stopping by.
Well as usual I kinda left this one to the last minute. It's my wee dad's 89th birthday tomorrow and I just couldn't think what kind of card to make. I get my crafty gene from my dad and I remember spending many an hour with him and a pile of art stuff having great fun and when I found this image on the Internet, that is exactly what it reminded me of. I photoshopped the Teddies' noses to match the backing paper I picked (cheating a wee bit here) and added some red glitter to the paint brush. I've never tried embossing a card blank before and I quite liked the way it turned out. I embossed the image after I cut it out using my Nestie and an embossing tool (a tip from an MSE friend) and matted it onto blue card. I'm not too happy with the ribbon cos it doesn't stick very well (I didn't have any glue dots - added to my every growing shopping list).
Anyhoo enough of the boring stuff, this is my wee dad's card - I hope he likes it (and you do too)
My name is Jaqui and I live in Glasgow with my fiance Chris and our two cats: Shadow and Kiarra. We are trying to move to the countryside so we can have dogs too. I would love to craft full time. I started this blog to keep a record of all my crafty stuff.
