A clown and a number

A friend of mine asked me to make her some small cards, as in smaller sizes, not as is smaller ages, lol! She asked me last year already, I'm so fast aren't I. Anyhow, I was browsing Bugaboo stamps the other day and came across this clown with his numbers. There is 1 - 0, which I thought would be perfect for what she wanted. Usually everyone wants the child's age on a card and with these images I can make that the focal point and make the card smaller. Isn't that clever!? I thought it was, woohoo. (I just hope she likes it.)

I have only coloured 1 & 4 so far, don't ask me why those numbers, and I coloured one girly themed one and one boy-ish themed one. These are for the boys, the girls' ones are pink and seeing I have had so much pink on here lately I thought I'd go with the boys cards for today.

I am also trying to make a few which are similar cause that helps speed things up. A small card is the same amount of work as a big one, and as I've said already, I am SO slow, I thought this way I could save a bit of time.

I coloured these two with my prismacolor pencils then blended it with sansador (gamsol), cut them out with a nestie and layered it on a nestie mat. I added a button and a bit of twine, some glamour dust on the flames and of course I had to highlight his bright red nose with my sakura glaze pen. That's it!

These cards will be entered into That's Krafty Thursday, Jeanie's krafty challenge. I hope some of you join me, look at the fun chicken badge on my sidebar which you could win. It's really easy, you can use any stamp, any sketch, any colour, ANYTHING, as long as you use kraft paper. I recently bought some from Elzybells, and I am so happy that I did, I love it. If you want to see stamping on kraft paper go check the Elzybells blog, it's beautiful. Maybe one day I too will try it.

I can't believe the weekend is over, well almost. I am very pleased though that I have almost finished my mom's invitations. I need to finish colouring 4 images, they are half done, then stick them on and voila, ready to go to their new home. It was quite a task to do them all, but it was such fun. Pity it doesn't pay really really well, I could give up my day job, oh no wait, it has given me up already, lol!!!

Enjoy your week and take care.
