A present for you

Where did this week go to?
Is it that i'm getting older and time is just flying by? - no sooner as I have finished work and done all the necessities at home, dealt with the kids then it is time to start all over again. Would someone invent the pause button please....

For this card I have climbed out of my comfort zone and used greens. Although I don't dislike the colour, I find it quite hard to match up on cards. Anyway this is what I came up with - yes another boys card. Still not happy with my shading of the hair, my clothes shading is getting a little better, but hair I really do struggle on - oh well will keep on practicing.

The punch I used on this was the very first one I bought cough cough so many years ago, and the buttons were in a sale from Hobbycraft. Paper is Memory Box frond sent from the lovely Elaine and LOTV stamp and sentiment.


Thanks for landing on my blog and taking time to read it - if you want to leave a comment or any helpful tips, please feel free.
