Today's card (before I have to get on with the vacuuming!) is a cute LOTV image made with a number of challenges in mind. Sometimes I make cards from a 'flash of inspiration' and then other times I see a challenge on a blog and that inspires the card design instead. This time, the challenge was for patriotic colours/red, white and blue
The stamp is called 'Big Present' (wonder why..? lol!) and he's so cute. I've coloured him with promarkers and prisma pencils, but again, wasn't too impressed with my colouring skills on his hair - I must practice more!
The backing papers were a freebie with a magazine, and the lovely spotty ribbons are from Joanna Sheen. The button and star gems are from my stash.
Have you anything 'patriotic' planned for the Diamond Jubilee next weekend? Last year we had a street party for the Royal Wedding, with the road closed and all the neighbours joining in of all ages, and it was great fun! But nothing planned this year - so I think we'll just have our own Jubilee tea party with family & friends. Good excuse for me to do some extra baking - the only problem is that I enjoy eating it too :(
Back soon, Kim x
