Cute Card Thursday 'Family Affair'
The challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week is Family Affair, make a card for a family member. It was Grant, my eldest son's 12th birthday on Tuesday and I decided to combine the CCT challenge with his birthday card.
The image is a fabby Greeting Farm stamp (thanks Caz) which I have coloured with Pro Markers. The card is fairly plain but this is just right for Grant as he is a no fuss boy! His comment when he opened the card was it's sick - which means he likes it!!Supplies
Stamp: The Greetings Farm - Skater Ian
Tools: Pro Markers, Buttons, Twine, PC (Sentiment)
DP: Basic Grey
