You guys are the best! I throw a little hissy fit … and you all pop by and leave me some blog love!!! 😀 I feel the need to give you all a big hug!!! 😉
You know how hard it is to make a “youngish” male card??? Well I combined 2 stamps sets and came up with something rather perfect!!! This is a 21st card for a friend of my kids who has spent a lot of time staying with us when he visits from Q’ld. He is kinda like one of the family. He recently got a girlfriend … though … so I imagine we won’t see him as often now!
The young man that is having his 21st has asked that instead of presents … can we donate some money to 1 of 3 chosen charities! I think that is so wonderful. Not many 21 yr olds who would do that … these days! 😀
I decided to add a little shimmer to this card … to make it a little more “special” for the special occasion. I know … boys are not into bling … but it is very subtle! I used a paint brush to paint some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint onto the guitar … and I also sprayed the background panel with some Champagne Mist Shimmer Spray (made with shimmer paint & rubbing alcohol). There is also a little shimmer paint sponged around the edge of the Baja Breeze card.
Well … off to take mum for x-ray’s and then we are having lunch at Stacey’s. GiGi (short for great grandma) will enjoy a visit with our little Bree! And … we can help Stace put up her Christmas tree! I haven’t been able to go to the tree farm yet to pick ours. Our trailer is unregistrable at the moment … and too old to fix up. So … we have to wait until Saturday when Sheree’s boyfriend can use his ute to get it for us! C U all again soon! Hugs xx
