A card for a friend and a challenge


Hi guys,

The house is so quiet and the reason??????? Jennifer is having a sleep over at a new respite carers tonight. We have not had a break for over 6 months and we are all glad for today! Jennifer has a condition called Re-active Attachment Disorder so things can get very tense, very quick and can last a very long time. So to get Jennifer to go she thinks this is a holiday for her to get away from the grumpy parents!! At first Jennifer thought this break was because she was naughty and it took us ages to explain that she needed a break from us. So the mice are playing today………

First thing was to get the craft stuff out and play…while Duncan is on the xbox. There is a challenge over at Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenge Here and it was good timing as I had to make a card for a friend of Duncan’s. The challenge is to use numbers.

So here is what I have made:


The stamp is StarBoy Luka from La-LaLand Crafts. I have used my watercolours once again. The numbers have been done on the computer and I have used a little Cuttlebug Provo craft embosser for the blue card around the numbers.


A closer look at Luka.


The card at full length. The papers are from the Papermania For him pack. I have had this pack for years. I have also used card candy. Also used to inks all the edges is Tim Holtz Distress ink in broken china. Around Luka I have used my chalks.


The nesties I have used are Labels Seventeen, Labels Twenty-Two and Decorative Labels Twenty-Two.

I do hope you like this card and do say hello so I can come visit you.

Luv Jane XX
