Manic Monday

Well, I didn't quite get round to posting yesterday as I had some visitors and my day seemed to just disappear with lots of things to be done. Thought that I'd pop on very quickly whilst taking a wee break from my work this evening to post one of the cards that I made for my mum's birthday which is today. So without further ado, here it is:

This was my first attempt at a gate fold card and I was delighted with the way it turned out. I was inspired by the birthday card that Monica sent me and thought I'd give it a go. I'm really glad that I did and I will definitely be making a lot more of these. I coloured with my new copic ciao pens which arrived last week and don't think that I've done too badly dor my first attempt. I don't have any memento black ink which most people seem to use with copic but I've ordered some and hoping that it will arrive soon. Instead my image is stamped with stazon black ink as this is what I normally use with my prismas. It has bled just a little but not too much. The sentiment and candy is from craftwork cards, the paper was a freebie from a magazine and the ribbon is from my stash. The image is birthday Hamish from Sugar Nellie.

Well, I'm off to get some more work done and hae a wee cuppa in the process. I'm a bit of a tea Jenny! Will be back tomorrow night to post another card.
