Bang The Drum

Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great week, hasn't the weather been beautiful... how time flies it's Tuesday already and time for another challenge over at 'Papertake Weekly' and being the last one of the month it's ' A Sketchy Free For All' ... You can use the new one that Dawny has provided or you can choose any of the other sketches  here... I have used the new one it was a lovely sketch to work with and my card came together so easily.. I do love sketches...

I've left the inside blank so the girls can sign it too..


I have made this card for my managers little boy who will be one next month.  Isn't this image gorgeous and just right for a one year old lol!  I coloured him with my inktense pencils, I know I keep saying this but these pencils are so lovely to use, when I wet them and they magically turn into these fabulous vibrant colours I feel like a kid again lol!!, do you remember the old painting books where you just had to add water and the colour came through, they remind me of them lol!!  I embossed the no.1 and the sentiment with blue embossing powder, wow this stuff gets every where doesn't it lol!! added ribbon and some stars and that was it.. done! I think I've gone a bit skew with my insert only noticed it when taking photos, how annoying, I hate things that are not straight, but no time to make another now....every time I look at it now I see it more and more, it wont move as it's stuck down pretty good lol!!
