Sssshhhh … don’t tell Sandy I am here displaying his birthday card!!! His birthday is not until next week … but I used 2 challenges to create this card … and the challenges close before his birthday … so I am posting it today! I am fairly confident he won’t be viewing this post (why on earth would he visit my blog???) … so hopefully this will be a surprise for him!
The two challenges are a wonderful sketch from Freshly Made Sketches … and a fabulous boy colour combo from colourQ! I do hope you pop by and view the fantastic DT samples … and the amazing entries for both of these challenges! Now … most of you know that I am not a fan of circle challenges … but now that I have my 2½” circle punch … I am one happy little camper! I know it is not big … but it does the job … don’t you think???
I have a fab chart to match my Prismacolor Pencils to SU! colours … so it was easy to pick my pencils to colour with! I added some depth to the image by choosing slightly darker colours as well … for the highlights.
This is the PERFECT IMAGE for Sandy. He is taking a year off soccer this year … you may remember the horrible year he had last year … his coach bullied him because he didn’t play the 2 matches that they had on Sundays … and because he went away for a week for our family holiday and didn’t play one Saturday (the coach admitted this to Gavin) … SO … he has decided to try basketball this year! I was tickled to find this pic for his card from the Saturated Canary DIGI shop and I combined it with the “Real Cool” image from Meljen’s Designs!! PERFECT!!! 😀 Only 1 tiny problem with starting basketball 😦 … his FIRST game is next Thursday … BUT … on Wednesday he has to have an operation 😯 (general anaesthetic day stay) to correct the break in his nose that he sustained a couple of weeks ago!!! Did I tell you about that? 🙄 I imagine he will not be feeling up to playing in that first match … although he will be insisting he is fine to do so!? My only concern will be that he be fine for his birthday on the Friday!!???
Well … off to make Bree’s 1st B’day card! Her birthday is the day after Sandy’s … what fun!!! (Hope Sandy is feeling okay to celebrate with Stace, Jono & Bree!!!) See you soon! Hugs xxx
