Hello card

This is the sketch challenge over at Craftmad for February.

At the beginning of 2014 I decided I would do up some fun cards and send to our son on a regular basis thinking it is always nice to receive snail mail that isn't a bill.  Well, I think I made three. :-)  So am attempting again this year.  Thought it would be a good way to put the sketches to use from over at Craftmad and also use items in my stash that I have had forever but are just too good to toss or pass on.   So this is my version of the sketch above.  I started with some orange gloss card is really not my thing thats why it has sat for so long.  Then some black glitter card stock from Blue Edge Crafts.  A scrap of the orange gloss card stock which I have used some left over rub-on letters.  Another scrap of card stock on which I have written in gold pen different ways to say hello.  A pre cut  black circle and the cork lettering stickers for the word Hi!.  Across the top of the card I placed a little washi tape border.

It's a wet old day here today, so hoping to catch up on some blogging and some crafting. 

Have a fun weekend everyone.

    I apologise for not answering your email. Life has been too hectic with new schools and our apartment which had some issues etc. And I am missing my friends in Jakarta so much.

    Lots of love,
