Hello and happy weekend! Hope you have a good one. Spent most of the day chasing clothes for my grannys funeral today. Manage half of the family, the kids. Found them each a lovely looking blazer in black, bought them big ones so the can (hopefully) use them again a few more times and Philip will take over Willy's when he has out grown it. They looked so handsome and grown up with them on. Granny would have love that. Now it's only me and my partner left and I dread that. I HATE BUYING CLOTHES for myself. Next to thunder storm and blood tests comes buying clothes for myself on the "hate list". A few more days left to find something, keep your fingers crossed that it will be smooth.
Ok, here is why I am here today. My olderst son Willy made a card the other day and he wanted me to show it here on my blog, so I have a 6 year old guest designer here on Cards by MI today. It started when he found one of my very few High Hope stamps that I really love but never know how to work with. This one is probably my favourite especially when used with the fabby sentiment "I might look tough and on attack, but I'm glad you got my back". Now he hasn't use it here but the image is cute anyway.
He spent a long time trying to colour the best he could, and then picked out some fabby designer papers from NitWit collections. Decided how he wanted to have his LO and made be cut the papers for him. Of course it took some looking into his mum's stash of decorations and this time the buttons was the favourite ones. And as he said, nothing is complete without some glitter stuff. So that is added in two different ways; stickles and some glitter borders from Anitas that I normally use for my Christmas cards. Pearls is also important but the ones that is a bit transparent is the best if you ask him. They look a bit like coloured water as he said.
So I promised to find him some challenges for his card as well. And here they are:
High Hope Stamps - Borders
ABC Challenges - Recycle (Buttons from old clothes
Make it Monday - Always anything goes
Love n hugs
