Lad about town


I had a lovely crafting day yesterday, making cards and doing some scrapbook layouts as well as scheduling several blog posts. I find it easier and quicker to do several at a time and have all my dates on a white board in my craft room. I mark those that are scheduled and I can see at a glance which days are left to fill. I have sheets with all my DT work hanging in front of my desk and these are marked off as I make them.

So onto today's cute card. The colours were inspired by a colour challenge at Fiskarettes UK on Facebook. I went for a distressed look with sanded Core'dinations and distressed edges.
Image - Little Miss Muffet Tenn
Medium - Copics
Paper - K&Co Hopscotch
Dies - Tim Holtz hexagon border, MFT mobile phone from the cute cameras set
Punches - Woodware and Fiskars stars
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards

With you posting a card every day it's no surprise you have to be so organised!
I have a little planner with all my info in; all my orders, DT work etc. - I would be lost without it!

Your card is so cute and colourful, a lovely boys design :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
