Ford Thunderbird - 50th Birthday Card

Hi all :)

I'm here today to share a card I made for a friends 50th Birthday, he recently purchased a 1966 Red Ford Thunderbird so my husband asked if I'd make a card featuring this type of car and the search was on to find one in digital form. I was thrilled when I can across this 1957 Ford Thunderbird from Tom's Colorful Life store on Etsy, it was as close to his real one as possible.

Happy 50th Birthday Steve

I'm here with this cute Circle Shadow Box and this gorgeous digital image 'Take me to the Moon' from Tiddly Inks. I made this for a baby gift for my nieces unborn baby, I went with lemon and green colours as I don't know the sex of the baby yet.

These Shadow boxes are so versatile and a lovely keepsake for  any occasion.

 The cute little baby image is called 'Take me to the Moon' from Tiddly Inks.

Hair - E55
Pram - G0000, 000, W00, 0, 0, Wheels - C00, 0, 1, Stars - Y000, 00, 11.

I used a lemon pigment ink on the inside of the Circle Shadow Box and patterned paper on the outer side.

G'day all :) I hope you are having a lovely day.

I made today's card for this months colouring challenge at Make it Crafty, Dew Drops - Add Dew Drops to Leaves and Petals.

To create the background I used my Copic Airbrush first with B95 in a circular motion then with B99 to darken it and back with the B95 to soften the 'circles'. I was inspired to do this pattern after watching a youtube video by Sandy Allnock, my practice ones turned out so much better lol.

I've coloured the Rose with Copic Markers and Polychromos Pencils

Leaves - G43, 24, 46.

Petals - R35, 37, 39, 59, 89, Red-Violet 194, Magenta 133 & Middle Purple Pink 125

67th Wedding Anniversary - Make it Crafty

G'day all,

I was asked by a girlfriend if I could make a 67th Wedding Anniversary for her Dad's friends in England and I was more than happy to do so, the only problem was she asked me on the Wednesday night and she needed it for the Sunday morning!!!! I work during the day and have other commitments Thursday night so that left me with Friday night and Saturday to get it done, that's okay I can do it........until I received a message that my middle daughter was taken to hospital 4hrs drive away on Friday afternoon possibly having a mini stroke, boy was that scary and all thoughts of making this card went out the window. Fortunately after a brain scan it was discovered that she hadn't had a stroke but was having a severe migraine. poor darling. She was later released from hospital and we went and collected her and her sister at the half way point, what a relief!! So there goes any chance of making this card Friday night and I hadn't yet designed or printed it. So up early Saturday and time to get busy, about 6hrs later with blurry vision it was done and here it is, I hope they love it lol.

So many flowers lol.

Inside of the card, with more flowers.

I coloured this with Copic Markers


BG49 & B99


Yellows - Y08, 18, 38 & YR04

Reds - R14, 24 & 27

Deep Reds - R35, 37, 39 & 89

Burgandy Reds - RV95, R56, 59, 37 & 39

Pinks - R83 & 85

Purples - BV11, 13, 17 & 29.

Greens - YG21, 25 & 17

Shadows - N4, 6 & W6.

I fussy cut the heart and popped it up with mounting tape on a beautiful embossed white base with a fine dark blue border then onto a white card base. I typed the sentiment inside the card with a couple of extra flowers and some doodling around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you weren't to board by my ramblings ;)
