You’ve got a friend in me ….

Those of you with littlies will know why that song is going through my head! Here is the card I have made tonight …..

Yes, I know I leave it until the last minute to make the cards and then have to rush my photos in bad light, but I just had to take a photo to show you all! This card was for another little friend who was having a Toy Story party (no dress-ups this time though! LOL!) I knew his mum was making him a sheriff’s star cake, so I thought I’d try my hand at a punch art Woody.

I got some inspiration from Clare (another INKling) and Sheila and then just punched and played until I got him looking about right. Hopefully the birthday boy will like him … and recognise him! LOL! I decided to ‘hide’ Woody’s body behind a wooden fence (thankyou Woodland Walk DSP!) because otherwise he wouldn’t fit on the cardfront!

Thanks for stopping by, now I’m off to bake a cake … someone in this house needs a birthday cake soon too! K 🙂


‘Killer’ card!

We were invited to a 30th birthday party the other weekend and the birthday boy plays guitar in a band, and so, knowing the birthday was coming up, when I saw Rachel’s punchart guitar card during the INKlings Masculine Blog Hop I filed that idea away! Of course, I left it until the last-minute to make the card so it’s not quite as good as it should be – or as good as Rachel’s! I think I need some ‘guitar practice’ !! LOL!

Anyway, he didn’t open the card on the night, but the next day hubby got a text message saying that the card was ‘killer’ and I was ‘awesome’ for making it!! LOL! I don’t think I’ve had a card described as ‘killer’ before, but I’ll take the compliment!!

I used Basic Black and Brushed Silver (from the Brushed Metallics pack) to make the guitar and the card base was Bordering Blue with a Basic Black mat and Whisper White that I sponged the edges of with Basic Gray. I used black brads from the Vintage brads pack and I had the silver cord from a couple of years ago, but unfortunately it is retired now 😦 I cut the ’30’ using my Timeless Type dies on my Big Shot (have I mentioned that I love that machine … and the Timeless Type Alphabet dies?!)

Considering I made it in about 15 minutes I was pretty impressed with how the guitar turned out … must be Rachel’s fabulous instructions!! Make sure you go check hers out!

Take care, K 🙂
