High on Life

Good afternoon

Firstly, I would like to tell you of Elaine's great candy gift away over at her blog Craft my Life . She's also chosen as part of a new DT at a new challenge blog, Joanna Sheen, that start soon. You can just click on the photo in my blog's sidebar and it will take you directly to her blog.

With the weather a bit cooler and grey, it kick started my mojo for crafting. This time a birthday card for a teenage boy or maybe older, getting a bit out of the groove of christmas cards. These days, if there is something electronic on the card it will do for a teenager since they are hip on it and that makes it a bit easier for us crafters. I used Cling Changito at home from stampendous, still in his pajamas, but with his laptop on his lap. Just love this little caracter. The "high on life" sentiment is from TLC and the birthday sentiment is from Hannelie, my sister in law, that does some great creative digital stuff lately. Very proud of her. She is also chosen to be part of a new DT at I did it creations challenge blog. The embossing was done with my cuttlebug emboss folders and I used a fiskar border punch for the circle border on the top left. I love to use border punches on both sides of a small strip of paper, since you can have a whole different effect than normal. Then I added some rhinestones for the final touches. All goodies is from my stash.
