Hello. Thank you so much for visiting me! I have been away for some time due a bad time with my ME/CFS along with my poor husband being in hospital for two weeks after a rush by ambulance to hospital with a collapsed lung! It was very, very scary and he had to have an operation from which he is still recovering, bless him! The only crafting I have done for a long while is the card I am blogging today which I made for my son Michael's birthday last week.
Its quite a simple card to get me back into the creative mindset. I used watercolour card and a couple of colours of Distress Oxide inks and water for the background then stamped randomly with a stamp from AAL and Create border set #33. The wheels which are from a stamp set free with a magazine are stamped randomly with black Versafine. I used snippets of white card coloured with the same inks to stamp the words from various Stamplorations stamp sets except for 'Wheelie' which is made up of letters from a Clarity alphabet set. The words are edged with dark blue ink then, when attached, I drew black lines around them to draw attention to them. I have had the penny farthing charm for ages and it was perfect. Michael really liked the card and said that one day, he would like to have a penny farthing in his garden as an ornament - a real one of course! Slightly older than the cool bikes he normally rides - I think he has four.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Use Snippets.
Country View Challenges - The Written Word (Add Text In Some Form).

Thank you again for coming back to visit me after my absence, I am so grateful! You are the best! I am trying to start commenting again. I haven't managed that for ages either - I am so very sorry!
Have a wonderful weekend. Take care. xxx
