Morning all, well hubby said it is suppose to be a mini heatwave today though don't think anyone has told mother nature in our bit of Blighty.
My first card today (another in the pipeline) is another card I made for Peter who I am having a card drive for. This one is for my son to send. He has started his chemo and radiotherapy and has a gruelling 6 months initial treatment to look forward to so I think I will be making cards every month to send to him to try and keep his spirits up, no get well as this isn't an option. If you want more info or to help click on the card drive link and it will take you to a post with more info.
I coloured the fab LOTV image in the rhinos colours and cut a circle around the shape, I've done this a couple of times and am getting quite fond of how it looks.The image is coloured with promarkers and simply stuck to card base.(Not sure what happened to the card stick colour it looks green on this pic and as you can see from the others it really isn't)
The card is fab , I did a little improvisation as it is a fab card base from Whichcraft in Doncaster, they do loads of different ones which you can find on their website here and its really heavy card. They come all pre-scored and cut and as I didn't fancy sticking paper on it I cheated and used it as a template. Next time I'm in Doncaster which from me isn't far away think I'll pop in and buy more as Paula said a wee while ago she would be getting more styles in store and on line, hubby can't check what I'm spending his hard earned pennies on if I go pay cash and I don't have to wait for the postie either if I visit, though when I have ordered on line from Paula it's always arrived really quickly.
Anyway back to the card, I used the LOTV layout though at first it may not be obvious, my 3 strips that are on the layout are represented by the goal posts for want of a better description as I have no idea what they are called and the word 'try'. It did start out as a clean and simple card which to look at I suppose it might be classed as but for some strange reason I decided I would make a 'crowd' watching the game. I coloured strips of paper in various skin shades promarkers and hole punched so I had loads of wee circles which I then stuck randomly onto strips of double sided tape, I think its quite effective. Hope it cheers Peter up!
