Big Brother

Good Morning Everyone,
It's a sunny but crisp and cool Monday morning here, the first day of the Half term holidays :) whooo hooo. Saying that, thanks to the clocks going back this weekend, I've been awake since 5.30 am so got some crafting in while the rest of the world was sleeping.

This special card is for the son of a dear school friend who had her second baby on Friday. They have emigrated to Australia but thanks to Social Networking it's like she's only down the road. I used the adorable "Mo Manning Digi".

I coloured the image with my promarkers and highlighted it with my white gel pen. The design papers are "first Edition", the sentiments were computer generated and I used my alphabet dies to create his name.

I have decorated the card the inside of the card with matching papers and embellished with my star nesties and buttons, adding a little dusting of glitter to his name and the large star.
The poem printed inside the card is from the web, I changed the names to suit.

Thanks for looking and have a nice day.


Stamp:  Mo Manning Digi Isaac and his brother.
Papers: First Edition.
Promarkers: Sunkissed Pink, Dusky Pink, Blush, Caramel, Cinnamon, Burnt Sienna, Peach, Honeycomb, Spice, Apple, Leaf Green, Powder Blue, Blue Pearl, Red, Black, Tulip Yellow, Warm grey 1to 5 and Cool grey 1 to 5.
Others:  Square and star nesties, diamond stickles, alphabet dies, buttons(stash).
