Good Morning & a Happy Saturday one & all. Big YAY! for the weekend! It's time for another Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge & this week my fabulous D-Teamie Bea has chosen the theme of
This could be real or faux. I needed to make a birthday card for my son, Jack's 8th birhtday this week & I wasn't sure where to go with the stitching as I did not have time to make an alternative DT card. So the stitching & the whole look of the card is quite simple. But hey, I've put sewing on a male card & I think it looks quite effective when you're stuck for embellishments. I even sewed the buttons on, but you'll have to take my word for that!
So there is not much to say about this. This is a Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy guy, coloured with Distress Inks available at the Secret Crafters shop, here. My hubbie thought he would make a good card for an 8 year old. When Jack opened it, we said it was a picture of him, but he said he looks too tall! How can he tell? He could be looking up at a door handle or something for all he knows!! The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley & the papers are Cosmo Cricket- Everafter. I've had them a while, so go me for using up old stash!!
I hope you'll now hop on over to the Secret Crafters blog to see the fabulous creations of my fellow D-Teamies. They are awesome!
I would also like to enter this at Stamp with Fun this week as I used their sketch for my layout.
Simon Says Stamp also want to see see a 'Card for a Child' & while I can't decide in my own mind how old this boy looks, since I made it for my own son, I'm entering it there too!
Thanks so much for looking,
I think it would be great for the younger age group and love the image - have a great day
