Addicted to Stamps - Theme Challenge #2 - Cards for Boys
Over at Addicted to Stamps this week we're up to our second Theme challenge - Cards for Boys. I'm cheating a bit this week because I've been really sick since the weekend. I actually made this card in February this year but haven't posted it on my blog, so hope it's okay to share now even though it wasn't 'originally made for ATS'.
I've coloured up a The Greeting Farm Ian image - fairly poorly now that I look closely. I think I was just starting to learn to use my copic markers back when I did this little guy. I've got shadows in all the wrong places - and if I'm being honest I still have trouble working that part out. You'd think it would be fairly straight forward right? Hmmm not so much I'm embarrassed to say.
Anyway pop over to ATS and check out the other design team inspiration for yourself. Hopefully you'll get a few ideas and join our challenge this week.
Other news...we had a fabulous weekend away. Unfortunately due to very poor weather conditions our Whale Watching Cruise was cancelled. The ocean was just too choppy. Instead we were offered a Dolphin Watching Cruise in the Bay. We rugged up (5 layers I think I had on) and headed out on the tour at Huskisson. Our tour leaders were fabulous and lots of fun - they made sure we all got wet (I could have done without this bit of fun but Gorgeous Kid was in his element).
We saw some absolutely gorgeous dolphins, and one of the mum dolphins had her baby with her - so precious. They came up nice and close to the boat and gave us a show. I'm not sure if it was getting so wet or the nasty wind but by later that day I was feeling crud. I've gotten progressively worse since then and spent a couple of days in bed.
On a much happier note - a super dooper happy birthday to Gorgeous Kid's Godmother Sue for today. We had a fabulous weekend. Thank you so much for organising it and making it so special for our boy!
