Happy *!%@+& Birthday!

Aaaah, the end of another working week and a busy weekend to look forward to.  Just wanted quickly to share this card with you, which is for the following challenges:

Crafty Cardmakers
Simple Doodles

The theme for all the challenges is 'Birthday/Celebrate' and, just to add a little humour to the proceedings, here's what I came up with:

Image: Just Inklined, 'Dick Van Duck - Party'

Papers: October Afternoon

Sentiment: My own!!!

Isn't he hilarious? I love him.  He looks as though he 'really' wants you to have a good birthday, doesn't he?!

I wanted to use up some brightly coloured scraps (my October Afternoon papers are running low - must buy more!) so this seemed as good a way as any.  I also paperpieced Dick's party hat, just to co-ordinate with the striped panels.

Obviously, he was coloured up with my Copics, because what else do I ever use at moment?  A little pale green glow with my Prismacolours, although this time some mid-grey Copic sufficed for the grounding.

If you haven't already used any of the new Just Inklined stamps, you really should take a look at them.  They have a great range, from humorous right through to scenic and they're very reasonably priced too.  You'll find more about the company and the stamps on their website, where you'll also find the image gallery.  Or, you can see the full range of images and purchase them here, at Imag-e-nation.

Right, an early night is called for as I'm very tired this week - big things are afoot at work and I need all the sleep I can get!

Happy crafting.
