I Should Concentrate More!

I'm just about on time with the current challenge sketch from the wonderful Carol! I've just been caught up with lots of other things (making up party bags, wrapping pass the parcels - who said kids parties were easy?!) so this sort of went by the wayside. However, an early start on Sunday made sure I got to grips with the sketch!

I've used printed papers from It's Funky Too (I'm pretty sure it is!) which I have lightly inked and then doodled a line around. The red card is from my stash. The image is Dustin Pike which I have coloured with my trusty Tesco felt tips and a little white gel pen - the clouds got the glitter glue treatment!

The sentiment stamp is from my stash and I cut the number 4 with my Sizzix Round-a-Bout alphabet dies. I'm fairly organised with this card as its is for a friends little boy who will be 4 at the end of the month - we were both pregnant at the same time and work together too!

So why should I concentrate more? Well, I'd completed the card and then came to open it out, and realised I'd stuck it all on upside down...... so had to trim it down and stick it all on another card blank.... in my defense, I was up rather early and was only on my second cup of tea!
