Nathan's 18th Birthday xx

Hello everyone sorry I've not been around again for the last few days but I have been having off days and didn't feel like doing anything.

I am here today with my Stepson's birthday card for tomorrow can't believe that the little cheeky boy who started coming to my house when he was nearly four is now the handsome young man on the picture below! Sorry but its another wedding picture as these are the only recent ones we have!

Well a few weeks ago I won the Kenny K challenge and along with some beautiful papers I have had from Sweden I also got to choose 5 new digi's and this is one of them Party Time which you can buy here. I have coloured the image with pro markers and have used glossy accents on the can, glasses and birthday bracelet.

I have used black & red Card with some Blonde Moments papers which I have inked up so that they all blend together and my new Tim Holt's Die I have wanted this was ages and I picked it up for a great price in a fab sale! I normally hate doing male cards but with my new die found this one really easy and I have loads of Tim Holt's metal embellies so added these for some extra interest.

Here is the picture of Nathan with Rochelle and Brett on there wedding day looking very handsome!

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Cards for Men - Seeing Red
Crafts us Crazy - Anything Goes
Allsorts - Free & Easy
Kenny K - Love

Thanks for visiting and all your fabulous comments.

Love & Hugs Chanelle xxx
