One of a Kind.............

Morning Everyone,

Yesterday i had a fabulous day at the lovely Graces craft shop Middlesbrough, however my mind is so full of other stuff at the minute i forgot to post on facebook.  I had a fab day paint fusioning, working on the ultimate and boards and also demoing the e-craft. The group of crafters grace has are fabulous and it is the second time i have been and her shop is just fab.  My next demo is in two weeks at dainty supplies, Washington so i have already posted this so i don't forget.  I'm not sure what i will be covering as yet but i will soon and as soon as i do i will let you all know.

My Gracie is here this weekend too and she saw me with my paints so has asked to do so Paint fusion with me today so i may have her work of art to post later today.  Today i have another SWALK card to share and this is One of a kind.  I love this image and when i made this card i mentioned to Kevin that for his 50th birthday i am going to make him one of these.  he wasn't very impressed but i feel we are both not looking forward to approaching the big 50.  The reason being is that i think neither of us feel 50 and the years are flying by.  Never mind i suppose most people feel like this.  Grace even said you are really old at 50 aren't you Nana?  Although I still have two years to go yet.

I've coloured the Bert with Spectrum Noirs, as he is affectionately called by Lovely Ali, and i decided to go for brighter colours with a dark contrast so have used turquoise and black.  I wasn't sure at first as i don't normally like really bright colours, but Leann keeps saying she is predicting bright colours for cards.........
I used backing papers from the SWALK CD ROM 2 and cut some photo corners on my e-craft, using  the Laina Lamb  office essentials sd card.

To decorate the inside i have matched the design on the from and left a place to write a message and then used the sentiment that goes with the stamp.  Its quite unfussed and plain but i think this is better for a mans card which i always struggle with but i love this one.  It was also really quick to make which i love too as i always seem to be running out of time.

Hope you like it.
