Time To Relax

How clean is your mobile phone?? I gotta tell you, mine is SPOTLESS! A 30 degree wash, with Persil Bio powder and a fabric softener will get out all those little marks!!!
I think I may have saved it just in time - it's drying out nicely, in the sunshine. :D)


I made this card for hubby's birthday - just loved the image of him and the dog, lazing in the sunshine. Should be a bottle of beer in his hand though!! lol**
It's coloured with Copics and I added a little glitter to some leaves - as if the sun is shining on them.

Challenges
CES - Sketch, designed by Sue.
Card Ideas - Let's Hear It For The Guys
Bling It On - Digi stamp + some Bling. (Hope there's enough on there!)
Karen's Doodles - Lots of Layers. (hope there's enough layers on this to qualify. I admit, I did cheat a little. I used a nestie for the circles, but I don't have the next die up, to layer it - so I went around the circle with a black Copic, to give the appearence of a layer of card underneath.)


Digi Stamp - Karen's Doodles, Time to Relax.

The 'hinges' were made from a spellbinder tag die, cut in half.

I've washed a few mobiles in my time Caroline and always got the blame even though THEY didn't take THEIR phones out of THEIR pockets before putting stuff in the wash!! I just love this card; the image is fantastic - the look of complete contentment on their faces! xx

Hi hun I did giggle about the phone hun sorry hope you manage to save it. Your card is gorgeous. The circles hun sometimes I find the difference with the next size nestie is too big so when I've cut out a shape using a nestie I then place it on my card for layering underneath & draw round it by hand & gives a fab layer to layer up on. I dont do it with fancy ones cus of the cutting tho lol. Love your fabulous colouring hunni.
Thank you also for joining us girls over at CES Challenges. Good luck shug.

Lotsa HUgs Vicky xxx
