First post, and first pictures!

Hello! Welcome to my blog. This is basically going to be a place for me to upload photos of my cards, so that people who are interested in ordering from me know what sort of thing to expect. I like stamping (especially digistamps) and colouring, and I like using unusual card shapes from time to time. Most of all, though, I love making a card that is totally personal to the recipient, so I like to spend time getting to know exactly what they like!

So, here's my first ever upload. Tomorrow is father's day in the UK, and as such, I have made a very quick card for my dad. He loves nothing more than coming home from work, eating his dinner, and then conking out on the blue leather armchair in the corner of the living room while we have to watch whatever rubbish he has put on the TV. When we ask if he is sleeping, he always tells us that he is actually "just resting his eyes". Hmmm...

Card shape: Easel
Main technique: Digistamping and colouring
Products used: Kim & Company papers (from the best of two block)
Digistamp by
Letraset Promarkers
Coloured pencils
Free fonts (Honey Script at the top, Reprise Title at the bottom)

There it is! I hope you like it. I am entering this into the One Stop Craft Challenge this week, where the theme is "One for the Boys". I think I'll also enter it into the Easel Card challenge at Digital Tuesday Challenge...I've also since added it to the Creative Inspirations Challenge 65 - One for the Boys!
