Big Present

Evening All,

I hope you have all had a fabulous Monday!  I have had a very productive afternoon, I have made 2 cards one which I will show you tonight and the other tomorrow.  I have sorted out my 12 x 12 boxes of card and paper, they are now all in order and had a good sort out of all my A3 paper and card.   I don't know what came over me this afternoon but I got such a lot done!  I must have my tidy head on is all I can think of LOL!!!

I have used LOTV stamp called the Big Present.  I have coloured him in using Promarkers, this is one of the images I coloured in when I was in Leeds last week.  I have used papers from My Minds Eye. 

Recipe & Method

1.  Card base is from Kanban Crafts which I have distressed the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Tea Dye.
2.  All 3 of the layers are papers from My Minds Eye.  The layer under the topper and topper have been cut out using Spellbinder Die.
3.  I have distressed the edge of the topper with the above mentioned distress ink.
4.  I have added buttons, Card Candy and sentiment which all came from my crafty stash.

Thank you for stopping by Today
