Thomas tackles a few challenges

Good morning, just checking it is actually still morning. Woohoo, I have a whole weekend off but poor hubby is working :o(  ….. typical or what!

However it does mean I can do a bit of crafting and I have lots of DT work and a couple of orders to make so I should be kept out of trouble.

Today I am sharing a card that I made a couple of weeks ago for an old friend to give to his daughter. I don’t usually make specific cards for people to order because I am always worried they won’t like them.

It it yonks since I used a LOTV stamp, especially little Thomas but he is just so cute and easy to colour that I had loads of fun. It is also yonks since I used the word yonks rofl.

I added some little sparkly dots to the flower centres, always need a little bit of sparkle somewhere on my cards.

I found some lovely little organza flowers in my stash and couldn’t believe how lucky I was that they matched perfectly the ribbon I had already used. So they got stuck on as an after thought but I love them, must remember I have got them tucked away for future cards.

I wasn’t sure how the bunting would look when I had the idea in my head but I think it kind of works and is a nice little surprise when the card is opened.

Last pic, honest! Piccie of matching box. Now I have started decorating my boxes I don’t think I can go back to plain white ones. It just helps to finish it all off and is then a nice keepsake don’t you think?

Right, I need a cuppa – had a night out last night with some fab friends but it was a bit of a late night/early morning and I had only just finished my nights and was a little sleep deprived. I managed to dance the night away though – well, I couldn’t let the side down could I lol.
