Hello.  I hope you are all well, and staying safe.  Why, why, why people are causing trouble like this I dont think we will ever really know.  Anyway, here in South Lincolnshire we are away from all the riots, and the farmers are busy combining, while I am busy working and trying to get my commissioned cards all done in time.  The next thing on my list is to start making christmas cards, but I never seem enthusiastic in starting them when the sun is shining!!.  Is anyone else like that???.

Todays card is not a christmas card, but one my Nan asked me to make for her Great Grandson.
Its an 8"x8" card, that I matt and layered using DCWV paper from my stash. The LOTV image is stamped on card that I have die-cut using a spellbinders nestabilitie, and again matt and layered this.  The image was coloured in with promarkers (before spectrum noirs), and distress ink used around the edges.  I used a Martha Stewart punch to cut out the buttons, and then fed string through them.  I then die-cut his name and age out of chipboard, and coloured it.

Thank you for stopping by and saying hello.  Take care xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
