Just... Wild!

Hello my friend. How is your week going? Mine is not bad, but dear me... time is really flying off my hands!! hehe I wish each day was longer than it actually is right now!! I will be away for a 5 day retreat next week, so I'm trying to do as much work as I can before (as I'll be having refurbishment and painting in the flat the week after next,I have to clear away everything). I wish to enter some challenges before that as well.. we'll see! :)

Meanwhile today I managed to finish off this card , which is built on Michelle's sketch for A Spoon Full of sugar. Thanks Michelle dear, I had fun using it. Sorry i made the main image a bit slanting, I liked it better this way, this card being for a boy! You know.. you do see often boys who keep things straight and clean!! :)) The ones in my care don't at least!! :)

I used Skater Ian for this one. Isn't he gorgeous? I love how much fun he seems to be having! He's Wild I say!! I'm also participating with Simon Says Stamp's One Year Celebration with this one! Happy Birthday to you all!! You're such a fab team! Thanks for the lovely challenges you give us, and the wonderful prizes and candies you generously give away for grabs Heidi :) I was over the moon when I won Bev's stamp last Monday! Thanks xx

One of the inside panels. I left some white jotting space, for any personal message to the recipient.

This is another angle of the card. I used the gorgeous Papermania Jesse Papers for this one. Aren't they delish? Coloured Ian with my Distress Inks, but other than distressing I kept it quite clean, being a boy card. I added a couple of buttons and chocolate and mint Dewdrops on the inside, and a fabric badge and some other dewdrops on the outside. The letters forming "Wild" come from a HOTP alphabet tiles book. I'm off for some sleep now, I'm sooo Zzz :)

Close up of the colouring and shading

Thanks for the love you choose to leave in some comment. Both me and Ian would be delighted to hear from you! Don't forget my challenge at Roses on Paper this fortnight. There are some entries already.. and it's combined.. so you have NO excuses this time ;) AND.. you'll be in for the last chance at participating for the GDT call Summer id doing for the soon coming Belles and Whistles!! How lovely is that? :)

Main message

Big hugs to each of you.

Thanks for looking
