Hello crafty friends! Today I've a 2nd instalment for Cards For Men...and rightly so this fab cartoony type digi is being offered by Donna if you'd like it. Well this is perfect for all those kids who just want to say 'Well, I can't be good all of the time!' He's such a cutey, broken the branches of the tree, stuck a bit behind him too, does he think his parents won't notice....may be not!!! Absolutely love it! I made a small batch of cards to send them right off to Postpals, just have to find 3 boys who would love these, ofcourse buttons will come off replaced by something more flatter. The Postmaster at my local PO charges me a lot just for a little bump showing through the envelope but still double checks with me. But I'd like to put a smile on a childs smile, if you've a spare card, please send one to them, they really are appreciative and humbling people, just want their kids to be better and lead normal lives like everyone else.
Other challenges entered are, Stampin for the Weekend '2 circles, 2 squares, buttons and bling', Sweet Stampin 'make your own backing paper'(mine is the christmas words on white paper, old woodmounted stamp from Whispers, not sure they're still around), Simon Says Christmas 'No red/green', I Love Promarkers 'Song title/carol...mine is Oh Christmas Tree' and my first time at Promarker # for Anything Goes. I've only Brights and Pastels pack, still learning lots so please forgive my colouring, on wait list for the rest, super value at QVC, hope they come soon!
One more thing... a nice lady left a comment to ask about stamping sentiment straight onto card. I feel confident enough now to do that but at one time not so. Best thing is if you've a clear stamp you can see through it where you'd like your sentiment to sit, the next is stamp onto rough paper to see if pressure is all even, i can be too heavy handed and squish the whole thing. If I've a dark rubber stamp i place it on the mount block parallel to the straight line of the block, can't really go wrong. Hope that makes sense, I collect any kind of stamps but really do prefer the polymer stamps! Bye until tomorrow.
