Brother's Birthday Card!!

Well here it is, my first card of 2009! I'm really busy with uni work at the minute but managed to find a spare hour to make my brother's birthday card (super organised as it's 2 weeks away yet!).

Image is by stampendous 'changito happy birthday'. I adore this image and have used it lot's for male birthday's since I bought it! Coloured with my new Tim Holtz distress inks. Papers are from BG Archaic and Granola. Legless brads from craftwork cards. The sentiment was created on my dymo machine. I added 3D gloss to the frame on the image and to the legless brads. I hope he likes it!

Sorry I've not been around much, and not likely to be over the next few weeks, my assignments for uni are calling (unfortunately) so it leaves little time for craft! :-( I will try and get around all your wonderful blogs when I can!

Hope you are all well and settling into the new year!

Hugs, Vicky x
