I'm sorry I've not been around much lately but I've got a couple of poorly children who are in need of a bit of attention so I can only really get near a computer if they're asleep! I've got a few cards that are part finished but I did manage to finish this one off yesterday. And just in time too - I've got to deliver it tomorrow! This is for my friend's son who is 2 next week :-)
I absolutely adore this image which was sent to me (along with the cute froggy charm) in a candy win from Debs, but I've got no idea where it's from - I'll have to ask her! As usual, I coloured him with promarkers. I followed a fab sketch from A Gem of a Challenge, although it's (probably!) not a Pink Gem image. The papers are from Forever Friends and the sentiment is one of Clare Curd's clear stamps (how I wish it said "Have a Hoppy Day"!).
I made the flowers using a woodware plum flower punch and shaped them to try to make them look like waterlilies. Was I successful? I wouldn't usually put flowers on a male card but I think they actually work because they're not too fussy or girly.
I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Cards for Men - Happy Birthday
Sarah Hurley - Flowers
The ABC Challenge - F is for Flowers
Craftalicious Challenges - Anything goes
I'm off now to visit some of your lovely blogs :-)
Love 'n' hugs,
