This blog was started mainly for my crafting, however I also find myself writing about my family life too and in particular about my son Josh. Josh is just Josh to us and we're used to his quirky behaviour. As I don't want to have to mention Josh's autism every time I post about him, I thought I'd mention it here. Hopefully you will bear this in mind as you read and it may give you a little insight into the wonderful world of the autisic child in a very gentle way!

More Snow and a Card.
We woke up this morning to more snow!!! Arggggg! At the moment its lovely and pretty but it's knowing that it isn't going to stay that way for long that's the problem. No doubt it will melt a bit and then freeze and we'll be back to the ice rinks for pavements again. Something to look forward to I guess!
Ok enough of the moaning and onto the card. A friend of mine at the gym asked if I could make her a very sophisticated 16th Birthday card for a girl who is into Audrey Hepburn. Well you know me, I love a challenge.
So I started off with a black DL card blank which I stamped my "Chic Background" stamp by Butterfly Kisses onto using Versamark ink which I then embossed with clear embossing powder. My friend Deanne very kindly let me have a couple of her Audrey Hepburn stamped images to use. I cut one down and double mounted it on to black and then white card and stuck that over the embossing.
Susanne also wanted "My Darling Aimee" on the front so I printed that out on the computer and double mounted it and put it across the bottom. I couldn't find a way to add the 16 to the front so I used the full image of Deanne's stamp on the inside and put the 16 on that instead.
