I am rather late with blogging this card - it features one of the two new release digi stamps from Jellypark. From last week. So sorry - I've been really busy at work and not been getting home at a reasonable time and I was struggling to string a coherent sentence together I was that tired.

I've managed to have a little 'me' time this weekend (in between a football match (they lost 7-0 but Jacob saved between 20 and 25 goals!) and then an afternoon of karting at 3 Sisters Race Track) plus I HAD to go into Blackburn this morning for a new school coat for Jacob - his zip disintegrated on Friday and some Bin Weevils' trading cards.....)  And I have some good news, but will tell you about that on Tuesday!

Anyway, here is Pirate and Dog on Boat digi stamp which I've made quite large and then coloured with Promarkers.  I coloured the sky with Watercolour pencils as I wanted a softer look plus a bit of inking too.

I found some card in my stash - I think it used to be a manilla folder - so that became the base of the card.  I've cheated a little and made my own brads - a Sharpie marker and then a dab of glossy accents over the top!
