Foxy!!

Hi, gosh sorry I've been quiet, it's been a manic week and I have come home each night shattered, and more than once with a headache - I think I might need to get my eyes tested :-(

This is just a quick post because we are off to a friends house shortly and I have got to get ready as it's their birthday (her last Thursday, him next Saturday) and so we are going round for dinner.  To HB's utter delight (spot the sarcasm!) she has organised one of those murder mystery evenings... and it's got an 80's theme, so I have been instructed to go as Kate Bush (no comments on appropriate casting...) , and HB has to go as Elton John...  ROFL!!!  I've found a pair of the kids play glasses and am busy attaching gems to it :-).  As you can imagine he is really looking forward to it :-)

Anyway, I have made two cards - I'll share them both over the next couple of days, but here is his.


I distressed the edges of the cs and paper with my scissors, and ran some distress ink round them too.  As I have so many cards to make this month (6 birthdays, plus new baby, mothers day x 2 and easter), plus the DT cards I have kept it simple, and used up some of the Creative Imaginations papers from a recent scrapbook class at Scrapbook Sisters which I thought went with the image perfectly



I wouldn't normally use this type of image but I think know he'll appriciate it :-D.  Actually she is fab to colour, although I am in awe of her waist and err, assets :-)  Having cut her out I sat her on some grograin ribbon, and added a co-ordinating button.  The sentiment is by PTI and I have stamped it onto Kraft CS and distressed it with scissors, ink and by bending it about a bit.
 
I'd love to enter this card into these challenges please
Thanks for stopping by
