Relax!

Hello and Welcome

What a busy day it's been and no time to craft sadly.

First I'd like to welcome my new follower Kathleen. I do hope you will be able to pay a visit to her blog.

For this card today I used my new Woodware Slippers stamp and Tim Holtz alphabet dies.

The background papers and card candi are from a kit by Craftwork Cards and the black ribbon from my stash.

The slippers were coloured with Pro markers, paper peiced, cut out and stuck to the card with silicone glue.

I just had enough of the patterned paper to stamp two pairs of slippers and die cut the letter.

 I put some Stick It onto the back of scraps of white card before cutting the letters out again so that the holes would stay in the card then marked them with a black pen and stuck on the paper letters.  I put some Glossy Accents on the letters after sticking them to the card.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;  Cardz4Guyz  "Wood in the Design"
Creative Fingers Challenge #107

Loving this 'relaxing' card. I'd have had no clue as to how to use this image, and you have presented it just super - the plaid slippers look terrific against the newsprint (conjures up relaxation after a hard day at work). Love that woodgrain background too, with all the embellies tucked around. Kathleen & I follow each other. She does fab work! TFS & Hugs
