Hello everyone..

Hope you are all well and staying safe..just had my eggs for breakfast, it is 7am Wednesday morning and still a tad dark, oh, okay, I just looked out from behind the curtains and it is day at home playoing in my craftroom, thank goodness for craft.

So I made this card ages ago and it was sitting in my folders and it is time to share..

I had a lot of fun making this, I always do love to make scenes..

Lots of dies..mountains, trees, rocks[ which is an upside down cloud die in grey]...Glitter cardstock for the water, my boat,oars and post for securing the boat dies and a piece of string..

The lettering was little chipboard letters which I painted and added something I cannot remember and it bubbled and blistered but was a happy accident which I really liked..

And there is a side has a happy birthday die cut inside..

And the postie came to my front door threw this on the step and took off..

I'm a happy only took 2 months to get here..

So there we go,  I'm off to do something, corrugated card today, found a neat box and pulled it apart and my head got full of ideas so jotted them down real quick andgoing to play today..

Thank so much for stopping by, see you tomorrow..

Hi Chrissy
Love this not going out bit means more time to craft ..Although the jumping up and down to see what hubby wants /needs is as usual .
But to your card .It is a peaceful scene and quite masculine .I love the DAD and how you placed it behind the hills and in front of cloud. Clever use of dies .

Janette said...

I think we all agree we love to see what scenes you create next Chrissy, this is fabulous, cleverly done, have you ever done a canvas, I have done a couple but more paint pouring, you could go wild on one of those Chrissy.xx

Using the blue glitter card stock was a great idea, it shimmers like water do in real like. A perfectly masculine design and great outdoors scene.
