I've been a bit creative again. It's good that I am able to make a little card every now and then even when the kids are home sick. My olderst has been home for almost the whole week with fever and cough. Sounds familiar? Well, it might have been because I had it about two weeks ago and the youngest last week. LoL What a winter it has been! Hope we all start to heal soon.
So tomorrow it's a kiddi birthday party again and that is pretty much why I needed to make this card and I have actually been looking forward to making it. For some reason the creative spirit has come back to me and I am so grateful for that. Earlier this week I posted a card with a cow girl on it, a totally super cute image from the Paper Shelter and here comes an older image also from the Shelter. I have done quite a few cards with this image and I just adore him. He is so cute and such a joy to colour, and since my kids still are young I use him as much as I can. LoL (Sorry about the bad pictures, I have to take a photo class, soon.) LoL
He is coloured with my Letraset family and some prisma pens for the back ground. Also worked quite a lot with the blender especially on his hat to get a softer look on it. The designer papers are from NitWit Collections which by the way has a sale going on today. The digi set is called "Lil tumble weeds" and is inspired by cowboys in red, blue and white. Just to die for! Also used a cow girly paper set from NitWits for my earlier cowgirl card this week. For embellishments I have gone back to a favourite of mine making a lasso out of some jute string. A star charm (need to find more of those as I am running out of them) Also some buttons in brown is used to decorate my card. The inside is made to match up the front and to give space to a gift voucher and some text. The sentiment is made with my granddads old dynamo writer. It's super old but works as a charm. The text just says "happy birthday" in Swedish.
Have a brilliant weekend!
Love n hugs
