It's lovely to be back in the land of blogging! I've done plenty of visiting and commenting and even crafting but just not actually managed to finish and photo anything until today.
Steve's arm is healing nicely but -and Im sure this could only happen in this household! - he put his back out as he woke yesterday. I have never seen anyone in so much pain before and trying to get him to the loo was an effort worthy of a Duke of Edinburgh Gold award I reckon! Had no choice but to call out the gp. He has spent most of the last 24hrs sedated and prone so at least I know where he is and what he's doing!
Here is a card I have made using one of the 2 images that I bought in memory of Layton. For those of you that don't know he is the 16mth old great nephew of Jak Heath who recently very sadly succombed to meningitis. Jak has 2 great images available for just £4 which is going towards finding a meningitis vaccine. Please do pop over and see for yourself, you will be buying 2 fab images and helping a great cause also, it couldn't be any easier!
My apologies for the picture quality of the close up I was just trying to show the glamour dust on him! I really struggled trying to make this card, the image was a dream to colour but actually trying to use it was quite awkward. I used a 6" square base card and seperated it with 3 strips of red card. I had no option but to use peel offs, not my fav thing but I think it just about works. I mounted the snowman soldier on white 'gemstones' card just to give a little hint of glimmer and raised him up on foam pads for a little height.
I am going to enter this into Creative Inspirations which this week is to use sparkle. I hope you like it.
Thank you for your visit!
