And Now for Something a Bit Different.....!

Some of you might remember that I was asked to make another card to go along with the Bratz one that I made last week. The brief was that it was for a little boy who loved soldiers and tanks. After getting myself in a tiz about what to do, I managed to find a digi kit which saved my bacon! I think it fits the bill don't you?!

The papers in the kit coordinated perfectly with each other so every bit of paper on the card came from the kit - which made life very easy! The only really time consuming thing was cutting out the jeep which proved very hard with large kitchen scissors! Must invest in some 'ickle dainty ones I think! The jeep and its matting are actually raised quite a lot on 3D pads but unfortunately, this didn't come out in the picture. I finished the whole thing with ribbon, star brads and a computer generated sentiment (designed to look like a military style typed message!).

My friend loved it. And, I was so chuffed with myself as I've never before made a card such a masculine card!

Actually, on that note.......

Please accept this as my entry for the super-dooper Dies to Dies For competition! Ooh, what I'd do to get my grubby mitts on all that lovely stash...........!!!

UPDATE: Lots of you have asked where you can get this fab digi kit. Check it out here. It's called 'Camo Kisses for Boys'. They also do a funky pink one for the girlies!
