Today is my Uncle's birthday. I am sending him this card featuring Malice from Delicious Doodles. He's interested in history so I thought a warrior woman would be perfect for him. The paper she is backed on has a bronze shimmer to it, which I used to match the metal in the picture.
The challenge this time over at the CYDI blog is CAS. I made my card using the Pears set by Lilypink Designs available here in the CYDI? store. Be sure to go and check out the other DT members designs and join in with the challenge for a chance to win a $10 CYDI? gift certificate.
I saw this image and sentiment on Bugaboo and had to get them. I was going to use them on a 1st birthday card for James' nephew, but that's not until February and I couldn't wait that long. This card will now be sent to James' sister as an RAK.
I used the 'Pooperman' sentiment which comes with the image on the inside of the card, along with a strip of each of the papers used on the front of the card.
Today's card uses 'Shy Goth Girl' from Squiggle Stamps. She is backed on three papers from the Rock Queen pad by DCWV. The layout for this card was based on Sketch 266 on Mojo Monday.
And, a quick update on James. He came home yesterday and is doing pretty good. In two weeks he goes back to the hospital to see how the foot is getting on, and to have a new cast put on. I've passed on everyone's well wishes and he says thank you.
Some of you may remember James breaking his foot back in March. Well, it didn't heal properly, so today he has had surgery to fuse the bones back together. He should only be in hospital over the weekend, but will then be in a cast for another three months. I'm posting this really quickly before I go to visit him, so I'll get on to the card. I used a Kenny K image, and backed him on a circle of paper from the Travel Light pad by We R Memory Keepers. I will update about James with my next post.
It's challenge time over on the Can You Digi It? blog and this time we are using our favourite animals. I have a few favourite animals, but this Meerkat stood out to me, as I end up spending a lot of time watching them whenever we go to somewhere that has them.
