Balloons of blue, just for you.

Good evening fellow bloggers, friends and visitors, hope you have all had a good weekend.  Another week just beginning.  Where do all these weeks go to lol !  the older I get, the faster they seem to go lol !!

Tonight I am going to show you a card I made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Craft's back in January 2009 -  seems so long ago now !  I just love this little boy as he reminds me of our beautiful Grandson when he was about 3 or 4.   He had a hat just like this and he looked sooooo  cute lolls.

Fold cream card in half portrait style.  Cut out two pieces of terracotta card five and a half x three and a half inches.    Fix one to the top of the card and one to the bottom, leaving narrow borders around the outside edges.

Stamp the boy four times onto white card using a dark blue inkpad.   Colour him with Promarker pens,  cut him out  and 3D him.   Cut out a piece of light green paper  and using  a dot stencil and put through an embossing machine.   Glue this to the front of the base card.   Die cut some flowers and glue to the card..

Die cut 'For you' three balloons and two unequal squares using the Cricut machine and the George and Basic cartridge.   Cut out two ovals one from terracotta card and another from patterned paper.

Glue the unequal squares in the centre of the card about half an inch in from the outer edges of the card.   Fix the ovals on top of the unequal squares using sticky foam pads.   Fix threads to the balloons and fix them to the top of the card using sticky pads.   Glue the threads to the boy's hand.

Glue the 'For You' to the bottom of the card.   Add some glitter glue to the balloons, the flower centre and also to the 'For you.'

That's it folks.   I'll be back soon.   Have a good week and thank you for stopping by to visit.

  5. Hiya Lindsay, thanks again for your fab comment. I just love this image, he is so...cute and looks just like my beautiful Grandson when he was about three. I haven't made many cute cards recently, it made a nice change instead of flowers, leaves birds etc., which I also love doing ! Hugs Jennifer xx,
