Sketch and Stash; Secret Crafter; Stamp Something

Hello everyone. I can't believe that it's been nearly a week since I posted anything. It's not that I haven't done anything...I just haven't had a chance to post what I have done! And...Wee Steven has also shown a crazy passion for card making!! He has taken over my Cosmic Shimmers, my waterbrush and most desk! I can't get near it. His favourite question just now is 'Can I mack a card, Mum?' or 'Can I paint now?' It is really lovely to see him 'craft'. He concentrates so hard on what he is doing and is delighted with himself. He is really proud when he is handing it over to the recipient as well. Anyway, I think I will have to set him up with a blog so he can show them all off because he keeps saying 'Are you goany put it on yours blog, Mum?' .

Anyway, this card was made for three challenges but I think that I am too late for one of them now. Never mind, I'll enter it on the off chance. The challenges are:

1.) Sketch and Stash - a sketch and new, never used or neglected stash
2.) Secret Crafter - Turquoise and Brown
3.) Stamp Something - Birthday Somethings

The image is a Victoria Case digital image and is coloured with promarker pens (Oh my gosh, I hear you say). Not my usual colouring medium but I am experimenting with these and am quite liking them. Not good news for my bank balance this, lol! I have followed the sketch on Sketch and Stash, and have used my new digi image and my neglected paper - so neglected that I can't remember where it's from, lol! I have used the colour combo required for Secret Crafter and it is a birthday card (Stamp Something) for Steven's dad whose birthday it is today. The sentiment at the side reads 'For you Dad'. The sketch had flowers on which I have changed to circles and they read 'Relax...Take It Easy...It's Your Birthday...' and on the inside, it reads '...Why should today be any different from any other?'.

I would also just like to say what a fantastic service I received from Vicoria Case. Within minutes of emailing her last night, I had received an invoice, paid it and been sent my image. Absolutely fantastic.

I am quite pleased with this one. Didn't think I was going to like it because I don't like the colours or the paper but...I like it! Hope you do too! If you stop by to take a look please leave me a comment to let me know you have been. I really appreciate it and love to read them.
