Just Hangin' Around!

I seemed to have lost this post yesterday with all the problems with blogger so thought I would re-post it today, as I have it linked to a few challenges.

Only a few more days until I reach my half a century, starting to get quite excited now! and if you haven't entered yet go and click the pic at the top of the side panel for a chance to win my Birthday Blog Candy.

I've had a bit of a manic card making week as I am trying to get all next weeks design team work done before I go away on Monday for a few days, just about on top of it now, only one more card to finish. On saturday I'm off to a Clipart Fairy card workshop, then sunday is the big day, so I'm planning on relaxing with friends and family, opening pressies, drinking wine, eating cake and (hopefully) lots of chocolate, yummy!

Today's card is made using Urban Roundabout papers 1  and Say it in a frame Boy 1 graphic from the Clipart Fairy. I loved the cute image of the boy peeking over the frame with his legs dangling, as soon as I saw it I knew that I would have to make a card where his legs would actually dangle, (I just had to didn't I? LOL!) and they definitely do! They are attached to the back of the frame with a brad and swing from side to side. The frame is held away from the back of the card so he really is hanging around, but the whole thing folds flat enough to go in an envelope.

 



I'm really sorry about the quality of the photos, we had terrible problems taking them last night, hubby has got a new sooper dooper SLR camera, with all the bells and whistles, unfortunately he doesn't know how to ring or blow them all yet LOL!, then on top of that he has a portable photo studio thing (technical term - hehe!) that he takes the pics in, it has a light either side, well, he only went and knocked one of the lights off the table and broke the bulb, so he couldn't get the lighting right, but hopefully you get the idea.



Don't forget to click the pic in the sidebar or here and enter my blog candy giveaway.
