And thank you to all those who have left comments and/or have joined my site recently. I really appreciate it. Spread the word!
Last weekend was my nephew's 10th birthday. Goodness me, time goes fast.... Here's the card I made for him.
Card stock by American Crafts "Denim"
Papers: My Memories # 140044 & Kaisercraft P431 "Volume" from the Rewind range, "Go for Broke" P320 from the Rustic Charm range.
Grosgrain ribbon by Kaisercraft.
I used navy and silver inks from my stash.
Twine by Hemptique.
Embossing folder "Swiss Dots" by Couture Creations.
As I was making this card, things got a little messy. I think maybe there was a problem with the quality of the inks (those ones are a little old). As a result, I had ink all over the place - so I decided I would add some more. Boys can be messy so this became the perfect "messy boy" card.
Lots of inky ribbon, knotted twine and bumpy bits.
I think he liked it - he was having too much fun at his party really :)
Don't forget, my etsy store is up and running now - The Little Purple Forest Shop. Take a peek, tell your friends :) I'm hoping to do a few more things soon to stock the shelves. Things tend to start getting busy this time of year with Christmas fast approaching!
Thanks for stopping by :)
