Hi Nic this is very different for you hun but its very cool, the grungey look is awesome & if you had fun doing it then that makes it worth it. I seem to have lost some of my mojo this weekend so I'm just doing some colouring, I've got loads of stamps that I've had for couple of months but never inked them up....I'm shameless lol!!! Hope you have easy day at work tomorrow to ease you back in lol.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Great card, Coops! Unusual image but you have made the perfect card for it, great sentiment and all the elements work really well together! And don't talk about work, I'm going back to school on Wednesday and I am really not looking forward to it either... Hugs Delphine xx

Rachel said...

hey coops!! :)
This is a great card!! And as aseveral people have said, it'd be perfect for a teenager who would say they hated anything cute or too girly!! The sentiment is great, too, and I think using the book page will have made a difference to the end result- more grungy than plain paper would've been!! :)
Didn't take you long to get back in the card-making swing after your hols!! I'm glad you had a good hol/birthday(envious of all your guilt free new goodies, tho!!:D)/wedding anniversary- your wedding pics are beautiful and you both look so happy!! So nice to see!! :)
Also, thanks for the b&w PM tut- came in v useful!! :)
hugs, Rachel x
