A Card for Jonathan


Hi girls. Thank you for calling in on my blog. I hope you have all enjoyed a great weekend (with maybe some have decent weather) and are raring to go for another week. We have a lot to look forward to this week because my eldest son, John and his wife Sarah and young Jonathan are coming up at the weekend for a weeks holiday. I'll be getting evicted from my craftroom when Sarah arrives lol.
Talking of Jonathan brings me neatly on to this card that I made for Jonathan's birthday this past weekend. I struggle with cards for boys and men but I think he liked this one. The image is adigital Kenny K and is coloured using my Copics. I don't know the name of the design paper I'm afraid but I used a panel of silver mirra card behind the mounted image (I'm sorry it hasn't come out very well on the photograph), the image is mounted on a piece of card that I put through a hand machine to corrugate it. The sentiment is by Lili of the Valley. I used adhesive letters for the "Grandson" and coloured them using a Copics pen.
I hope this card might give you a few ideas and I would love to read any comments you might have time to leave for me.
Have a good week and stay safe and healthy.
