13 Today

Hi everyone!

I thought it was about time I brushed the cobwebs off my little dusty blog and get something on here, I don't want you all leaving me now do I???

I have got loads of cards done and photo's taken but finiding the time to blog about them has been impossible.

I've also been dabbling in the world of Mini Album making and seem to lose myself in youtube tutorials most nights.

Any hoos here is a card I made for a commission, this was inspired by my lovely new friend and DT sister Simonne (hope you are feeling better hun) ... here's her fab card.

So here's what I did:

The image is by Kenny K and I coloured him with a mix of Pro markers and Graph'it Markers, I also tried something new and edged all the way around the image with black marker to make it pop.

I used so scraps of paper from my box, matted everything with black and added faux stitching as always.

I used loads of dies too, the arrows and numbers are by Die-namics and the stars are X-cut.

The inside is decorated to compliment the front with space to add a greeting.

And there you have it, I hope you like it!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, hugs xx Cara xx
