Helloooo, it seems like ages since I've shared a card, I've been looking after my Mum, who needs caring for 24/7 as my brothers and sister, who are her main carers were away on holiday....it's hard work and I'm exhausted, but it's so rewarding to spend time on my own with my Mum, she's such a special lady and despite her pain and disabilities she stays positive and cheerful, she's also sharp as a knife and nothing gets past her!
I did so miss my crafting though, so it's wonderful to be back home with time to play!
Ok, now the card.... there's a new challenge starting today at Creative Moments
, the optional theme is 'Teentastic' or, as always, Anything Goes! We're sponsored this fortnight by Robyn's Fetish
and were given some images to play with, I chose to use this cute Bookworm
image as I thought it perfect for my lovely nephew, Liam who will be 15 this month. He's an extremely clever young man, and he loves his books!
I made a tent fold card from green cardstock, covered it with a scrap of striped dp. The top border is punched, embossed and wrapped with Bakers twine. I made a smaller 'card' from 2 small pieces of red cardstock, which are hinged together using punched circles, the image -coloured with copics - on the front, which opens to reveal his gift!
The flap is kept closed with a tiny peg which I coloured red with a copic marker. The sentiment is a Paper Smooches stamp. Phew, another of my 'Male May' birthdays catered for!
Thanks for visiting today, apologies if I've been a bit lax on my comments over the past 2 weeks!
I hope you'll have the time to pop over to Creative Moments
to enjoy the inspiration from my teamies, we'd love to have you join us this fortnight!
lots of layers
