The Joys of Blogging....





Well I have to laugh and apologise with this one...This is a little gift card I made for a friend..we got him an e-mail voucher for HMV so there is a little message saying "check your inbox"

Well I had it all ready to give...The recipient was coming over in about 5 min, and I suddenly realised that I had not yet taken a photo, so I quickly tore open the envelope and snapped some photo's and that's why I have to apologise the photo's are shocking..but the whole incident just struck me as extremely funny,

Again the pocket of this card was created by using an envelope and piece of card.

I have used the "manga boy from sugar nellie" the papers are "K&Co Amy Butler - sola collection" The image has been coloured using my whispers pens and have added some faux stitching. I plan on entering this into the following challenges:

http://papertakeweekly.blogspot.com/ - Faking it

http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/ - Hidden Treasure

Finally I am going to practice using a sheduled post, as I think it is something that I really need to learn how to do, so here's hoping that it will work!!!

  19. Great card Juls. I know what you mean about taking photos. Not the first time I've had to take a card back out of it's envelope to take a photo!!! I got my Mangas the other day and then saw that the Christmas ones were in. They arrived today. Just catching up with blogs tonight after working every day. So no crafting tonight.
