Happy 3rd Birthday!

Hello everyone,

Well, I'm a day late - but better late than never, I say!

I have my DT project for the new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz which went live yesterday as they celebrate their third birthday. So, a massive well done to my crafty friend Caz for creating and running this fab blog - in the past I struggled to make cards for men, but being a part of this design team has definitely broadened my thinking.

Here's what I made using one of my LOTV stamps and my new AquaBlend pencils ...

This one is for my Dad, who celebrates his birthday on Friday 13th this year! 

I used an 8"x 8" white scalloped card blank and added design paper from my stash. I used the 'Checkerplate' embossing folder from Sara's Signature Collection 'Just for Men' and embossed a piece of grey cardstock, then highlighted the embossed areas with silver gilding wax.

The main image is 'My Best Friend' by LOTV and I coloured it with my new AquaBlend pencils by Spectrum Noir - not bad for a first attempt!

Embellishments include some grey organza ribbon, a couple of buttons and some brads to finish off.

Hugz, Jan xx
