Firstly Happy 2016 to one and all,sorry for the long absence but we were away in November and December brought its own problems when my son fell and broke his right foot and the following week had planned surgery on his left foot and was told he was non weight bearing for 7 weeks so as he normally has problems mobilising due to his cerebral palsy you can imagine what fun it has been.
Anyway we will get there , what doesn't kill you makes you stronger and although I did get all my Christmas cards made I manage only to take a few piccies and visiting blogland just hasn't happened lol, but I'm here now, so happy new year to one and all.
I love the movement the image offers and hope my colouring did it justice. I chose autumnal colours as that is mums favourite season and think I managed to disguise the blob one of the promarkers made quite well.
I have several of the limited edition ones from different seasonal sets that periodically and without warning just flood whatever you are colouring with an unsightly blob or pool of colour. I have even bought some of the ultra-fine nibs to put on them to try and prevent it with no success so anyone with a solution I am all ears please.
The sentiment is peel-offs but mean that its quite neat. The card itself I decided to go with an easel style and love these spellbinders grand ovals with the pretty lacy type edge reminds me of embroider anglais.
I decided to sit my little girl atop some white embossed card with tiny hearts on it and fussy cut her out to achieve this. The little stars are the out-cuts from the small oval I used on the base of the card to create the stop for the easel section to stand up with. I simply sprinkled them from height and stuck them where they fell so truly random.
More peel-offs for the happy birthday along with brown ribbon and a hand-tied bow atop the gold oval and more heart embossed white card .
Hope Mum likes her card as much as I am happy with it.
