I have to say I adore this little image. Thank you Mary for the loan of it.........I will give it back I promise I just have to stamp it another 500 times!!!!!

If you look at the first picture showing the card you will see it is an embossed piece of white card. The tag is from the Xcut tag dies and the Hi comes from the Abracadabra Xcut letters. If you look carefully I punched 4 lines of scallops with the Xcut punch and then made them all fit around to make the frame. The image has been colored with my amazing fantastic Flexmarkers from Letraset. I didn't go mad with shading etc as I wanted to show that although we all admire these amazing crafters who color with such talent you want to cry, it doesn't have to be that way. When you are starting off into coloring straight on coloring can look great and as your confidence builds your skills build. You can learn all the shading etc when you have the time to play but if you are just trying to get a card made and sent then just go for it, whoever receives it will love it.

Now look at the close up image. I think you could use here for happy cards but also for "Why haven't you called me" cards, cheer up cards etc etc. Personally looking at the image I think about how I feel when housework has to be done (folded arms and expressionless face!!!!!) lol.

Happy Crafting everyone.
