 Hi Everyone, well what a rush I have been in, so many things to do, however nearly at the end now and I'll be able to show, what I've been up to.

Anyhow, here is one card that had to be rushed! I had forgotten to update my calendar and had to rush and make this card for our Great Nephew. He was 3 last week, how quick time goes. 

 His Sister and he had been bought a motorbike for their combined birthdays, so I had at least an interest to make a card with. I found this dear little image in my files which has been in my files for a long time (2013).  As usual, I print and cut with my Cameo the frame and the image 3 times. I coloured him with DI's and silver ink. He was then layered and added to the frame which I had already attached to the card. 

I then stamped my envelope with the twine stamp I used for the bauble card, (previous post).

 image - Sleike Digital stamp
inks - Distress inks, salty ocean, squeezed lemonade, candied apple
silver ink - Kuretake
frame - JanniScrap Designs
twine stamps - Altenew
 This is the front with the envelope
This is a close up of the front where you can see 
the sheen of the silver ink where the chrome should be
 this is the insert, that I put together ion Photoshop and printed

I hope you are all dry and warm with this awful weather we are having, rain, rain and more rain. There we were worried that our reservoirs were too low, and people were worried about the drought, now we deal with flooding! Ah! The good old British weather ay? Have a great week.

Hi Faith I LOVE this cutie, its so perfect for a little boy, just gorgeous and the string stamp on the envelope is wonderful, never seen that before, is it an old-ish stamp...
Hope you have a good weekend, I think we are all sick of the rain its too much. Take care.xx

Sounds like the perfect image for the little fellow Faith, it's so sweet and really pops with the chequered border.

Don't know about water shortage, the Ouse near us is at bursting point which we've not seen for a year or two.

This is great, I love the way he seems to be going on a journey through the card. You will be pleased to hear that I took your advice and cut out an image with my scan n cut and stacked it just as you do. I have to say, it worked a treat so thank you for your advice and encouragement. Owen will love his special card xx

Hi Faith! Thanks for stopping by my blog this morning to comment on my card. I completely hear you when you say "I thought I'd already commented on this card.." because I often leave a comment on a blog only to learn that it didn't publish somehow. I'll never quite understand Blogger. LOL

Well this card certainly has a lot going on and in a good way, must have taken ages but it's definitely worth it as the result is stunning.
