Mini celebrations all around here today!

I officially have over 1000 pageviews (that's one milestone reached! lol) and my copy of Cardmaking & papercraft arrived today, and they printed my email! :-D That was a nice surprise!

Anyways, one more cute fella from LOTV to go today!

It's somewhat different from usual, with the main image coming off the card! I thought what it could really use was a die-cut swirl of some sort along the left side, so I decided to try to make up for my lack of machine by instead stamping some leaves and swirls onto the same green card (yes, it's green again, not kraft... Maybe it's just my PC, but no matter what I do, I can't seem to get it to show green correctly :-S ) as the mat and cutting it out roughly. I'm pretty pleased with the result! :-)


Medium - Promarkers
Papers (from top to bottom) - Paper Cellar, Papermania "Wellington" and Dovecraft "Garden Party"
Green & white card, button and twine from stash
Sentiment - Part of a LOTV sentiment stamp!
Leaf stamp - Hobbycraft

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Male room - The great outdoors 
My mum's Craft shop - Boys only 
Card Crafter's circle - For the boys 

Hope you all have a most excellent day!

I love that stamp and you've done a great job with your lay out. I was lucky enough to win a spend at LOTV over the weekend, so intend to put it to good use when it arrives!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming one of my followers and for your lovely comment. I love this card! Funny how some colours just don't seem to come out right when you take a photo. I have become one of your stalkers - er followers as well. Looking forward to seeing more of your awesome creations!

What a fantastic background for that adorable image, Sammy! The flourish is perfectly natural as a plant that would be growing to the side of your scene!! Well done!
