I'm Back!

Wow... long time, no blog! I have done no crafting since before Christmas - not even thank-you cards (oops!). There's been 'stuff' going on but today is my dad's birthday so I had to come up with something. I've had this in mind for him since I saw these on SplitCoast, so thought I'd give it a go as I've never put photos on blocks before:




I think they turned out okay! The photos were developed in matt sepia, and the letters were stamped using the See-D's Plain Jane Alphabet. All the papers are DCWV.


The card:






Those numbers are wooden ones that I got for Cory to play around with and they're 8cm high so perfect for crafting with. I'm sure he won't mind me having a couple! The main paper is American Crafts and the blue is DCWV. The ribbon is also American Crafts and you can just about see some brads but I haven't a clue where they're from!


Well, I'm off to make some chocolate covered pretzels!
