I'm A Proud Big Sister!

Saturday, 24 August 2013

Evening all!
I thought I'd share the card I made for my little sister - she got her GCSE results on Thursday and she has made us all very proud!
The wee smarty pants got 2 A*'s, 7 A's and a B!!  And in a couple of subjects she only missed the A* by 1 or 2 points!
So I got to it and made her a card and here it is...

I always seem to choose Saturated Canary images for cards for her, these little ladies just remind me of Rachael!  I thought this one looked like she was wearing clogs so I used it - she's called Sabrina.  I coloured her with the following copics:  Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; E47,44,43,40. Dress; E35,33,30.RV34,32,R39,37,29.YG97,95,93.
I was colouring away in my own wee world when I suddenly realised how late it was getting so I had to rush to finish it, but I suppose that is why we all love crafting, having our own wee world to go to!

The papers I used are Pretty In Pink by Glitz.  The dies are Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval, Whiff of Joy Stars Festoon and Marianne Design banner with sentiments to fit.  The "Clever Clogs!" was computer generated and printed on kraft card and chopped up into little squares before being attached with foam pads.  The pearls, gems, ribbon and twine are all from my stash.  Everything was inked with Walnut Stain distress ink.

The inside was done to match the front with another computer generated sentiment.  This comes from when she was wee, maybe 3 or 4, and we would all call her a genius while pointing our finger into the middle of our forehead - if I remember right it came from TFI Friday - and she would copy us.  That's what comes from having brothers and sisters so much older than you! lol!

So there you are, my card for my talented and clever little sister.  I wonder where she'll be in a few years time?  Somewhere good I bet!

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Sheena, may I firstly send my congratulations to your sister on her excellent GCSE results and thank you for sharing your obvious pride in her achievements with us. No less than she deserves and I wish her well for the furure. You too have shown your own 'genius' in making your sister this beautiful card and I've really enjoyed reading the stories behind each element.Our challenge is 'back to school' so I'm assuming that, with this set of results your sister will be returning to school to further her education so I'll wish you good luck in our challenge. Ingrid (OSAAT Yeam)
