Sitting On The Fence.

Thought I'd share the card that I made to give my DH for our Anniversary tomorrow,Oh my word,I can't believe it's been 26 years! The image is a freebie digi by Polycraft,downloaded ages ago,and here's a little secret,this is the first time ever that I managed to size a digi and print onto card,not paper,entirely by myself. Normally my very patient son helps me with this sort of thing but I need to try and do this myself,especially when the extremely talented Gayle Bond is about to release a whole range of Digi's,I'm so excited about this,she is such a clever lady! I can't wait to get creative with some of her images!

Not entirely pleased with my fence,could kick myself now as I've just remembered a demo I've watched somewhere where Corduroy was used to create a wood effect. too late now,will make a mental note for next time.I coloured the image using Copics and added glaze and stickles to the stamped hearts. The great big juicy heart buttons were a buy from Paperchase and the greeting is Jane's script by Woodware.

I'm entering a few challenges with this card and have just double checked that the image is a Friday Freebie by Pollycraft and discovered that my card fits in with this weeks challenge too,a first time for me entering one of their challenges!
