Home Grown Boy

Oh dear some more unmounted rubber arrived in the post yesterday and it was all stop to put a few on some EZ mount so I could play immediately. I had to use this Home Grown Boy from Sugar Nellie he looks so like my nephew. I had to use typical boy colours and noticed the Truly Scrumptious sketch on my desk and it all fell into place with some Chatterbox papers. Whoops there suppose to be something shiny, do you think my shiny red brads count.

I've added this card since its not going to my Mum for Mother's day, I made it because when she was able she used to grown Geraniums. The trouble is its a large card and it would only look right with a sentiment but Mum loves over the top cards with as many flowers, ribbons etc you can get onto one piece of paper. So I've put a birthday sentiment on instead, which is straight so I'm not sure why hasn't photo straight. The papers are My Minds Eye.

Still have some more rubber to EZ mount, so that will keep me out of trouble today.

Debby both these cards are fantastic. I love the Sugar Nellie one, waiting for mine to arrive, but they are both lovely, the geranium one is so eyecatching and I love what you have done with the semi circle of brads on the top one.

Lovely card Debby, like the way you have decoupaged but shaped the flowers to make them more natural. Will try that sometime.

Beautiful Debbie!!

Michelle said...

The boy card is ace too! (using this description shows my age doesn't it) Brads are beautifully placed though I'm rather precious with my metalwork. Keep them for special cards. Tight or what!

Frances said...

Both Gorgeous Debby, it really makes them 'pop' the way you always decoupage your cards. Love them both & great take on the T.scrumptious sketch. I got that home grown boy too, my first choice of the ice cream one sold out! (momentary lapse in stash diet but firmly back on now ;) Have a lovely weekend. xx
