A Quick Kiddies Card

Hiya folks!

Hope I find you all well today? Me? I've got me a bellyache this morning, probably the IBS playing up again I expect. Ugh! Enough of my problems, I have a quick card for you.

This was a quickie that I knocked up for my daughters friend. It was her birthday on Thursday and Dno2 was invited to the party, so I had to make something a bit quickish! Knowing that she has a Westie, I plumped for using my Willie the Westie image, coloured with watercolour pencils, scanned and printed for layering.

Thought I would go for some springy colours rather than the obvious pink and girly ones. The dp's here are all off my compy from various suppliers. I printed out a computer generated sentiment too.

The buttons and ribbon are from the stash. Had me a bother of a time getting the ribbon to go through the tiny holes in these buttons, so it took a little longer than planned to make, but I got there in the end!!

Right, gotta go and try to forget the bellyache by hacking seven shades out of the kitchen walls!! They are covered in textured wall paint that has loads of bits in. I did that when we first moved in about ten years ago, as we couldn't afford a plasterer, and I couldn't do smooth walls, so opted for texture to mask all the imperfections! BAD idea!! The grease and dust have settled on all the little lumpy bits, and it all looks horrible now - so it's off with the bits!! Wish me luck peeps!!

Some challenges that this card fits -

Critter Sketch Challenge - Sketch+critter+buttons
Creative Card Crew - For a Child
Penny's - Recipe
Crafts and Me - Yellow

Ah this is so cute , my Dad loves westies will have to check out the image link. Thanks for sharing with us all here at Penny's.
We had textured paind to the walls when we bought the house we are in, I found a wallpaper steam steripper softened it enough that it came off with a scrapper much easier but very messy.

Julye said...

Fab card and love the westie too will have to check out your link as my Dad loves westies too. Thanks for joining us at Penny's and good luck.

When I had textured paint to strip I used a wallpaper stream er as it softened the paint and it came off much easier, but very messy.
