So after a quick trip to the supermarket and a whizz (well a stroll really cos my neck and back won't allow me to whizz anymore!) round with the vacuum cleaner as we have two viewings tomorrow I intend on spending the rest of the day in the craft room - will have to tidy up in there too unfortunately as the sight of the desk and paper strewn floor is likely to put off any prospective buyers. Am hoping that the next visitors are more than just 'carpet treaders' and we've had our fair share of those!
Onto the card - I made a similar one to this some time ago and the image was amongst a pile I had coloured and popped in a drawer so thought I would set to and get it made up into a card!Mo Manning made a girl and boy version of this and although I like the little girl one, this one is my fave of the two! His little car backpack just makes me smile.
I coloured it with promarkers, then cut it out stuck it onto linen card using foam pads and added some embroidery thread for streamers from the handles.
The star paper is from a pack of sticky backed stuff - lost the front so don't know who made it and the stripey one was a scrap piece in my stash. I mounted the lot onto blue card and added three very large red buttons. I hope the big red bow hasn't made it too 'girly'!!
The inside has the same striped paper to co ordinate with a space for a greeting and the sentiment on the front was PC generated. I haven't fixed the sentiment permanently yet as I'm not sure if it's a bit too 'grown up' for child!
