Happy Birthday Bear

Well I got my magazine cards done, I was quite pleased with them in the end, after all that anguish, so I am a happy bunny now.
This card is another Lili of the Valley image, I used core-dinations cardstock, and some We R Memory Keepers letters - I stuck a couple of them onto a scrap of card before mounting them, it gave it a bit of a different look

The brads are denim covered ones that I picked up in Big Lots in the US


Image - Lili of the Valley


Papers - We R Memory Keepers


Cardstock - Core-dinations


denim brads - making memories
Promarkers -
teddy: vanilla, honeycomb and caramel
Car and clothes - Denim blue, pastel blue and midnight blue
Shadow and detail on tractor, ice grey 1, ice grey 2, warm grey 1, warm grey 4
Sponge - buttercup
Overheard in Costa Coffee today (two twenty-something designer- clad women, wearing false eyelashes and a lot of fake tan)
1st girl - 'He's booked our holiday, we're going all-inclusive to Lanzarote'
2nd girl - 'ooooh luverly. Where's that then? Spain innit?'
1st girl ' dunno really, think it might be somewhere by Ibiza........................
Makes you want to weep doesn't it?

Hi Enfys, wow love your card its fabulous and just right for a male card, it might even qualify for the Cards for Men challenge if its got 1 image, 2dps and 3 embellishments.
Oh I did have to laugh at your story of those two girls, thick I should think dont you? I mean I ask you its a bit much when you dont know your arse from your elbow. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxx

I love LOTV too, En, they're lovely to colour aren't they. This is a great card. The lettering is brilliant.
Hope you're not attracting funny sorts in this country too, En, you'll be making a name for yourself.

Another gorgeous card with a really cute image. When I hear people speak like that it makes me realise I did the right thing in making sure my kids had a good education, I feel so sad for those others.
