Card Patterns Challenge.

Posted by Picasa
Ok firstly I thought I'd try out my Picassa 3 editing software since it's been on the computer for ages & I never use it. So I hope that you can see the above picture.
This card is for the latest Card Patterns Challenge I am really enjoying the freedom of doing sketches lately. As they stop me from going ummm......err ok.......lets see.......... etc, etc & not really getting anywhere with my cards. This way half the work is done for me ;-P.
So now you are wondering what papers did I use? Well let me tell you this cute range just happens to belong to www.mylittleshoebox.com I just love the owls, birds, turtles, trees & houses on these papers. The best thing is they are all double sided so I get twice the fun from them. No wonder they accidently fell into my shopping basket the other day while at my LSS. I am also using one of my new stamps on this card as well. Happy Birthday is from my new Hero Arts Clear set CL272 All Occasion Messages. I cut the Happy Birthday apart from the rest of the saying as it was just the perfect font & size for this card. I am thinking of giving this card to my nephew for his 9th b'day. I think it's ok for a boy, now before you say "Hey didn't you already make him one" this is another nephew Zac whose b'day is the day after Sonny's. No wonder I get confused some days!. Well I am off to make a few more now whilst the creative juices are flowing, so TTFN.
PS Dawn I finally found a linky thing in blogger that I can use, thanks so much for your help :-D.
