Sweet Stampin' - flag colours

At Sweet Stampin' this week, we'd like you to use the colours of your Nation's flag... could be easy or very tricky depending on your flag I suppose!  We're sponsored by Letraset who are offering one lucky winner a set of promarkers, and Joanna Sheen is our monthly sponsor with a £10 voucher prize :o)




It's hubby's birthday today, and this card is for the boys to give him.  I had pneumonia when it was Father's Day and couldn't make him a card, so I wanted this to be a sort of birthday/ Father's Day combined thing...

I've used the fab Rock Idol stamp from Sugar Nellie, and coloured him with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The papers are from the Stars & Stripes set from Raspberry Rd, printed onto linen card from Papermill Direct.  The loopy border is a new purchase - I had a little spend at My Mum's Craft Shop last week and got a few new dies... this one's by CC Designs and I love it :o)  The sentiment is just made up from sheets of lettering that I print out and then cut up.

Very rushed post today, sorry... I'm ashamed to admit I haven't actually finished my own card for hubby yet lol!  He'll not be back for a few hours though, as he's working this morning, so I'm going to rush off and get it done now - hopeless aren't I?!  Hope you all have a lovely day, will be round to catch up with you later :o)

Hi Lisa, what a brilliant card - love everything about it.

So sorry I've not been by for ages, life seemed to go a bit haywire there for awhile. Am hoping it's back on track and I'll get back to visiting everyone regularly again.

Hope you are fully recovered from your bout of pneumonia now.

Have a great weekend.
