Bird, Cage and Flower

This card is made up of  folder embossing, Gesso, Gellatos, for the background and then  Die cuts, a flower and a small sentiment tag, mounted on to plain teal cardstock.  I scanned it into my computer rather than direct from my camera.  The only colour that differs from the card is the feather, which looks red, it really is orange.

Like any normal 16 year old the thing they want to get as soon as possible is their Drivers License.  My grandson is no exception,  he is going for his written test on Tuesday next week.  This is the card I made for him For his birthday.

 The image is from Bugaboo.  Coloured with Copics.  Flags from Heidi Swapp using several word stamps from my stash.  Metal cog from Doc Crafts Chronology and Cog Die Cut from Time Holtz.  Cardstock from my stash.

Walking or Golfing

This digital image of two old fashioned ladies is from TLC.  Made the card for one of my golfing friends, because I think the lady in the background is swinging a golf club.  I have paper pieced the ladies and the whole background, so no colouring other than copics for the faces.  Cardstock and the flower from my stash.

Boots Required For Summer

Well another card for a male, my grandson who is turning 21 and attends University.  He had a summer job applying sealer to driveways.  His boss had the boys knocking on doors to get the customers and then doing the jobs themselves.  Part way through the summer he decided he would take away their commision for getting the customer and only pay them an hourly rate which was lower than minimum wage.  They both quit, went out and got a trailer and a tank and set up their own business.  Last I heard they were doing quite well.

I don't very often do a CAS card, but decided on one this time.  So everything is very minimal.  The boot tracks are from Digi stamps 4 Joy.  I popped up the heel and the sole to give some definition and used a stamp which I embossed with red for the sentiment.  White and red cardstock on a black card from my stash.

I think he will like it.  I am entering the card in the following challenges:
