Card for Grandma

Another post, gosh I am doing well, only because hubby is watching grand prix and whatever else is on tv, son is playing 'Sims' as usual when he can, I think he has a God complex, or he just likes it as he feels in control which he doesn't always with other things in his life. The other reason, Dad's poorly at home in bed so mum and dad won't be coming to lunch and hubby made the mistake of saying I could spend time cratfing and computer blogging so here I am, and so loving a little bit of me time.

This card is for Andrew to send to his Grandma in Tenerife for her birthday at the beginning of May. not sure if he will approve a s it's cute but as long as he writes on it I don't mind if he likes it or not, I'm sure Grandma will and thats what matters.

I coloured the flowers in sakura glaze along with souffle the duck and popcorn I coloured with promarkers for contrast using almond and soft peach. I kept the layers simple so the image remains focus of attention. I love doing clean and simple cards but really try to make more elaborate cards with embellishments etc, but often slip back to my comfort zone.

I am entering this card into the following challenges;_
The corrosive challenge-Texture-I used a strip of embossed card and raised glaze
Totally papercrafts-spring
Friday sketches-fab layout, might try it with more elaborate card too sometime as I think it would work well for thats style too.
Stamp something-layers
Polka Doodles-animal magic
Pixie Dust challenge-use Green
Cute card thursday-use texture- embossed card and raised glaze
CAS-tastic-anything (a new challenge blog for CAS cards also have a DT call)
Sentimental sundays-sentiment and flowers

Julye, what a lovely card you made for Andrew to send to his grandmother - she'll love it, I'm sure. I love those papers. Thank you for stopping by and commenting so sweetly on my blog. I'm so glad I referenced the show "I Love Lucy" and that she did say the right "English" words. So you'll be making a card for your son's birthday for that day - great reason to celebrate. Oh and you know I love the Sims too - because it does give you a bit of power, you know, whereas we might not otherwise ever have. Teehee! :D Have a lovely day!
