Nostalgia

Hello my crafty friends, hope this finds you with dry weather. What storms we've had the past few days, the four legged members of the family took a look out of their respective doors and said "No thanks" to yesterday!! Wednesday, however, has brought another lovely day so I shall enjoy it while it lasts.

I've a little boy card to share with you today. 


Many times I have admired the lovely "spine" card creations by the lovely Brenda at Floral Fantasies and have threatened on numerous occasions to have a go...well...this is my first attempt! The inspiration actually came from the papers, I then discovered some grey ribbed card and so the elongated, stripey, idea evolved. The image is from Birdie Brown, coloured, as per usual, with my Promarkers and a complimentary ribbon and bow to finish. P.S. Mog and Suzy say they would LOVE a bonio that size!!

I'm off to play here

Lovely card Sarah! Great design.
We don't have any four legged family members (myself included), but the two-legged ones were plenty reluctant to go out as it was. It's been like that for a good couple of weeks now. That's the worst thing about living in Leeds... It's only dry two weeks out of the year, lol. x

Hi Sarah, we've got four cats - one goes out in all weathers, one is a grumpy old so and so and doesn't go out much and then the very young cats aren't allowed out - too silly with the road - so we've pretty much got the whole spectrum!!

Fab card - soooo cute!

Thanks for joining in with us this week at Polkadoodles Digi Choosday.
