A Digger for my Grandson

Welcome,

I am sharing a fun card I made for my Grandson's third birthday.


Typically, he is fascinated by large diggers and trucks, so this image, one of my first digis by 'Sunshine', was a guaranteed hit.


The sentiment started as an experiment to see if the letter set I had would stamp onto the mini tags die cut, which it did!!  This was a great revelation as I have had this alphabet 'forever' and had never used it!

The stamps tags were then threaded onto twine and 'strung' across the card.


The image was coloured using some water colour pens that were also one of my first purchases - so glad our 'stash' does not expire!!

The card was a great hit - especially as it was accompanied with a large digger to be used in his new sandpit!

I am linking this to:

Thanks for visiting - all comments that you leave are greatly appreciated.
May your day be blessed
