So I'm cheating again! - the challenge was to make a birthday card - and my stamps are 99% christmas sooo I thought I'd doodle a wee image to use on this card - everything else is PTI stuff tho' If you aren't familiar with the PTI Blog hop challenges - check it out here.
January's blog hop takes place this evening and I'm posting a little early but you can see the other entries by popping over to the PTI forum and looking at the blog hop thread.
This card was for my son's birthday - yep that wee round faced baby in the photo on my profile is acually two now!! I thought it would be appropriate to draw a picture of him - yes, he actually does look like the wee doodled character, complete with orangy hair. He is the cutest wee dote... but back to the card, I drew the pic, scanned it in to the 'puter and added the sentiment - he gets called big guy sometimes cos he's so little and he loves trains. The font is called giddyup but I think it was one that I purchased rather than freeware.
I made the Ocean tides background by stamping Versamark in a guidelines grid and filling it with stars from the Believe set and bellies from the Wise owl sets, both PTI - the yellow is Summer sunrise CS stamped with faux ribbon stamps in Raw Sienna.
I cut the star with a spellbinders star die out of Vintage cream PTI CS and the ribbon is Ocean tides. The brads came from Papermania.
Hope you all have a fab blog hop, I look forward to a load of inspiration tonight.
