Rain Rain Go Away!
And don't come back for at least a month please, as I still can't get my furry boots on, well on the puffy foot anyway and I feel a bit conspicuous splashing about in odd shoes LOL !!
As it was Hubby's birthday yesterday (and the sun did come out) I had to make him a card. Groan, can't do male themed stuff, don't own many masculine stamps whinge whinge , only a few steam punk, motorbike ones. The choice is limited for men isn't it, as it seems to be steampunk or vintage gents. I always make Hubby motorbike cards, so thought I'd have to make something different this year. He plays the mandolin and guitar and as I didn't have either of those stamps I plumbed for another stringed instrument instead. I made the background using DI and La Blanche stamps and a kaisercraft music one. The focal stamp is also La Blanche and is coloured using DI's and prisma pencils. Rub n buff antique gold was added to the curled edges.
I am very behind in leaving all my comments so I do apologise and will do some blog hopping later, but first I have some serious craft catching up to do.
The lovely Lynne from Adorn has just brightened my day by letting me know that I have won a set of stamps from The Stampsmith, how fabulous, thank you Lynne.
