Lil' old Me

West Midlands, United Kingdom
I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Triple Challenge Card

This card is for three challenges:-
  1. Stamptacular Sunday #18 - Child's Play
  2. Sunday Sketch & Stamp #8 - Sketch
  3. Crafty Downloads August - Birthstone
As I needed to make a card for my cousin's little boy I thought this image was perfect and I have used Turquoise coloured card as it is my birthstone. I have decoupaged "Thomas" but doesn't show up well in pic - sorry :(
I didn't have a black peel-off for the number so coloured a gold one with my black promarker - works a treat!

Image: "Thomas & his train" from Crafty Downloads
Paper: Crafters Companion "Spring/Summer Occasions" CD & Cuddly Buddly
Medium: Promarkers
Punched circle
Card stock, peel-off number and card candy from stash
