Samuel


I don't often share cards on my blog.  I don't often make them any more.  Just for those special times, really... like this one.


 A good friend from my childhood becoming a mummy for the first time.  A very special moment, and a very special baby boy named Samuel.
 

I sliced up some blue papers and arranged them in ombre order.  I lined up some chipboard letters on the same papers, trying as best as possible to line up the patterns.  Then I added a length of ribbon and used glue gel to add the letters on top.  Et voila!

Having made this card (and another since - to be shared soon!) I have come to realise that I do like making cards.  My cards are my cards though, not influenced by or to be compared to the delicately promarker/copic coloured image my Crafty Ribbons team mates do so well.  They are me, and I think I ought to carry on making them - no one else will - not comparing my cards to theirs and thinking I am doing mine 'wrong'.

Thanks for stopping by!
