Happy Saturday Everyone!

Me - again - I know - three times this week!!

It's Saturday already which means it's challenge time over at Totally Gorjuss.

Our theme this week is "For Mum" and our generous sponsor is Crafter's Companion so to be in with a chance to win £10 to spend on their on-line store make sure you get your creations posted over at Totally Gorjuss.  Don't forget to check out the wonderful work the DT girlies have made to whet your appetite.

Here is the card I have made for the challenge:

Now I must apologise for the poor quality and somewhat squiffy picture.  I made this card a couple of years ago, (before I had a blog), for a friend who wanted me to make a card for his two little boys to give to their Mummy.  As you can tell from the picture I knew absolutely nothing about taking good quality photographs or editing them etc - I did say in an earlier post that it was a blast from the past for me, but I just wanted to share this card with you as I just absolutely adore the image.

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Image:  'Brothers' - Mo's Digital Pencil
Papers:  'Land Ho' - Nitwit

The image was coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E11 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Blond Hair:  E55 E53 E51 E50
Brown Hair:  E37 E35 E34 E33
Large Boy's Jumper:  BG02 BG01 BG000 / B26 B24
Large Boy's Trouers:  E55 E53 E51 E50
Large Boy's Shoes:  W4 B23
Small Boy's Jumper:  E18 E17 E15
Small Boy's Trousers:  B26 B24 B23
Small Boy's Shoes:  W4
Rabbit:  C3 C2 C1 C0
Teddy Bear:  E27 E356 E34 E33

And that's that as they say.

I hope you didn't mind the poor picture.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
