Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 50 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Bugaboo Birthday for Hudson - Easel card!

A certain little lad in the family was two... so needed an ultra cute card ... and for once I though the right way around!!
I chose my papers first (2006 Stamping up!) .. then went through various colouring mediums to see what colours matched the paper the best, pencils three sets were ditched, as were Tombows and ended up with Promarkers, which matched perfectly. :D A blessing indeed. Unfortunately my images are bit washed out as was very sunny day.
This was a fun card ... layout is one I borrowed from Debby of Scrap Journey, see here..

Both Penguin images are by Bugaboo (see here)... I love bugaboo for 3-D'ing, it really lends itself to it! Don't have balloon die, so used a small circle die not cut all the way through.
Perfect match of bakers twine made me thank the LORD for His mercies, again!
This verse was adapted from online. Snippets used on this card so over t play in the playground woohoo! :D
I know I should give credit for this Easel Card image, but found it in Google search and nowhere else. I found it the easiest idea to follow. All these measure here, fold here, cut here details confuse me :( give me a simple image every time! love that you can make it to any size or shape. :D
I am going to join over with several challenges see list below.
Thanks so much for popping over for peek and chat .. will return your visit as soon as I can, as do love to see your work too. :D
May God bless your day and those you love, wherever you may be.

Absolutely fantastic card Shaz! I do love that huge cake towering over the penguin :) And your time and trouble matching the papers with the Pro markers really paid off!

What a cute image Shaz, with that sweet little penguin popping out from behind that cake with the ice cream in his hand and that little hat on his head . . . all beautifully coloured too! Have a lovely weekend! Hazel xx

Love your easel card, it's awesome, and the penguin is just too cute!

KandA said...

This is a gorgous fun card Shaz. Super fun papers match the cute image perfectly xx

MaryH said...

You are so clever to pick the papers first! These were perfect with this darling image. I always start with the image, then struggle to find 'go-withs'. Loved the combination of the patterns, your coloring is wonderful, and it's delightful as an easel card. The little guy will be thrilled because the image is just the thing for a youngster. Fun. TFS & I especially liked the verse with this post. So thanks for that as well. Hugs
