TGF CHA Relay Day 1 - Mer Ian



My second post for today. I decided to have a go at the relay at The Greeting Farm - I'm sure there's no way I'll manage to keep up every day, but I thought I'd at least try!

The image for today is Mer Ian, isn't he cute? I'm not sure about my card, it's a bit different for me, but then I've never been any good at making anything quickly! Also, my printed images could've done with a bit longer to 'set' but there's no time for that, so I've not been able to do loads of blending or the lines would have smudged. The spotty paper and the water effect one behind the image are both DCWV, blue cardstock is coredinations, with some plain orange cardstock from my stash. The circle frame was cut with nellie snellen dies, added a Craftwork Cards sentiment and some buttons from stash. I've already got my image printed off for tomorrow's card, so finger's crossed I'll manage that one too :o) I've followed the sketch from Sweet Sketch Sunday and I'm also entering my card for the 'boy birthday' theme at Stampavie.
