Still card making -



in between a couple of other projects... will post a pic of one later (waiting for glue to dry!)

These two cards are further additions to my stock for my Breast Cancer Charity - both made using digi images.... (see - am still practising colouring!)


Ok, first one is Gus. Gus is a relative of Ruby and the other ladies over at Bugaboo... he's a real grumpy old man and reminds me of someone I know.... (not OH I hasten to add, who is never grumpy!). I'm sure we all know a 'Victor Meldrew' grump like Gus! I coloured him in using promarkers and the backing papers are from K and Co. The cute boxer shorts charm was from my stash and looking at those legs think Gus would have been better advised by the fashion guru to wear something a little bit longer to cover those bony legs!

I always struggle making men's cards and obviously so do the gang over at 'Digital Tuesday' who set the theme this week of 'Make Those Men Laugh'.

The second card is made using a digi freebie and I can't for the life of me remember which company it was from, but I know it made me smile when I saw it. I used Coredinations Whitewash paper for the background and added a scrap of DCWV card left over from another project. Coloured the image with a mix of watercolours and promarkers and added a bit of sparkle to the bug's wings. The ribbon and buttons from my stash.
