Crocodile smile

Hi Everyone, I heard on the radio today that the UK has the highest flu figures in March for quite a few years, so those of you like me and hubby, are the ones who have suffered from a "common" flu -and there was me thinking it must be an odd one for me to get it! Oh! well, if you have it now, I hope you will be feeling better soon.

Now my card today is using colours that I can't remember putting together before. It all started with me looking through a few card magazines for ideas for a card for my Godson. I saw an advert for a stamp with this sentiment, well actually similar to this. My thought processes are quite bizarre as you may well know of me.

Anyhow, a crocodile came to mind and I started with a cut file, but it had to be a LOT larger for me to get it to cut properly. I searched my files (before buying another cut file)for alligator or crocodile and came across a couple and this was amongst it, Where I got it from is anyone's guess, I have had it since 2009.

Now on to what papers etc to go with it. I already had the sketch from the Outlawz sketch challenge. I searched for water and one file led me to a blog hop set of files and this is the result. I laid it all out in PS, printed and layered the papers and added dimensionals to the crocodile and the lily brads. Wobbly eyes added for laughs. Godson now way over 40 LOL. has a wicked sense of humour so I know he will appreciate it. Inside I have added "That smile looks good on you"

As well as being so cheerful & colorful, this one made me grin. I adore that sentiment, and what a perfect one for a birthday. Enjoyed reading the adventures of the creative process for this cutie, and as usual, you came out a winner. He's gonna love it, and love you for making it. Clever girl! Happy Easter, and hope you are both all better now. So far, we've escaped the flu bug - hope we can keep it up! TFS & Hugs

I've had the dreaded flu for a couple of weeks now, and everywhere we go, everyone else seems to be suffering too. So I think your radio broadcast was spot on. (Sadly)

This is a great card huni. I love the bright colours especially.xx
