Having a Swinging Time!

Hi there peeps,

Hope you all had a great weekend? 

Today I would like to share this card that I've made just for the fun of it.  My friend Tasha kindly let me use some of her stamps over the weekend, and I love this one, it is of course from LOTV.  The papers are another selection from Nitwits, called Little Men - Tash donated these too, bless her!  Unfortunately, I made a little boob just after I'd finished colouring my 'little man', and ended up with a tiny splotch of something to the left hand side of the image.  I was really cross with myself, so was trying to think of something I could use to cover it up, when I suddenly remembered the leaves stamp that I received in an old Magnolia club set.  I got them out, and coloured them with my Copics, then cut them out, and mounted them using some sticky pads, and thank goodness it covered up the splodge, and I think, adds something to the picture???  A border cut with an MS punch, a bit of string, and a computer generated sentiment completes the card.

As it fits the bill, I'm going to enter it into this week's Simon Says Stamp challenge which is Fathers Day/ Male card.

Hope you like it.
