Simply Adorable Thomas.............

Good evening my lovelies bet you didnt think I would be back especially this late body has just gone past the tirement stage now & I decided to craft to take my mind off things.
I have made a boys card tonight & do you know what I really enjoyed making it & I found it all flowed together nice & easily. Surprising what a good selection of papers & fab sketch will do lol.
This is the adorable 'Thomas' from Sugar Nellie Adorable range which of course you can get from Funky Kits. I do have a slight complaint which is a first as I truly love this shop, however on the digital side I think you should be able to buy 1 single image, I have tried a few times & it tells me I have to spend a minimum of £5. Whilst I completely understand minimum spends I think digital items should not have this & this then makes you buy at least 2......which to me is unfair. Good job I love ALL of these adorables lol & have to have them all anyway lol.

This is to show you all the layers.

Thomas is indeed a digi image & he was coloured with Copics.
E00 E21 R11 E50 E31.............will write the others in tomorrow cus I forgot them lol

Papers used are my new Bo Bunny 'Blast Off' this pad is lush & the colours are fab so out came my bright A4 card. Raffia from my stash & the bunting I made with my WOJ Pennants die, I used the metal die to cut out the paper & I drew around the plastic template onto card to layer underneath & attached Bakers Twine along the top.

Well thats it for me Natalie is still awake & not settled yet so I will do some hopping until she settles.
Thankyou for all your comments this week about my cards but more importantly regarding my health it really has meant a lot & I loves ya all mmwah.
Welcome to all my new followers, thank you soooooooo much for being here & I hope you enjoy & like it here.
Tatty bye peeps, take care & keep on smiling

Zoe was still up past midnight as she's lost her favourite teddy as school and would't settleand I'm having a cuppa before bed. This is gorgeous though. Love your colouring and not used this pad yet. Goes with the rest of them lol. Sleep well!

Wow! Love this card! Your colouring is perfect!!!

Teri said...

At last! I get to comment on your blog!! Believe me I have been trying for days, but blogger has been such a pain redirecting me to the blooming sign in page all the time. I think it is something to do with the embedded comments rather than the pop up windows, as I can usually comment on those no probs.
Anyway, wanted to say how lovely all your new cards are - awesome as ever hun!!
Hope the pains aren't too awful for you, any news from the scans yet?
Have a great BH weekend hun, we don't do that one here in Scotland :(

Fab image/colouring and fantastic layout sweetie. Sorry you couldn't sleep as you were over tired. I agree about the £5 limit, it is silly as they are not posting it and they don't physically have to parcel it up.
