U Rock Playing Basketball

Hello Everyone!

Popping in to share a birthday card I made for a
coworker's boyfriend who loves basketball
and whose favorite color is blue.

It is always a challenge for me to make cards for men/boys,
but I enjoy the task and hope the recipient likes the result.

The digi image is a freebie from Playing basketball digi from Dibujos.
I have colored it with my usual Distress Inks.

Since it's a masculine card, I used die cuts and embossing for embellishments. 
The rusty orange and mustard yellow paper provides contrast
and brings the focal image forward.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and 
wish you a lovely day!

Happy 18th Birthday!

Hello Everyone!

It's been a while since I blogged.
I do have a few new cards to share but I never
seem to have time to sit in front of the computer lately.

Today, I have a new card to share with you, I have made it for
my son Eric who celebrated his 18th birthday last week. 
Where did the time go? He was only a wee boy not too long ago!

The digi image I used is called "You are so shiny" by Diane Duda.
You can click the link to go to Diane's Etsy store.

I water colored this sweet boy with Distress Inks. The image was 
printed on Canson Mixed Media paper on my HP laser printer.

Have a wonderful day/evening!
