Birthday Seduction

Hey all, hope you've all had a fab Saturday so far!  I'm back with my 2nd male card of the weekend ...... phew! I clearly want to make life difficult for myself this weekend :) The other half better flipping like it after all my hard work, blood, sweat & tears! Well ..... little bit of a fib there ..... there was no blood!!

For my Fiance's birthday card this year I chose the adorable 'Seduction Suzie' digi stamp from Redonkadoodles. When I saw this gorgeous girly I just knew I had to have her!  I think Mike'll appreciate her too - seeing as she looks so much like me :o)  (okay, in my dreams ....and probably his too) ha, ha, ha!  Anyhow, I usually do the fishing ones, or football, or fishing and yet more fishing cards for Mike but, for this year, I thought he could do with a change ;) ..... I'm kind like that!! And it has absolutely nothing at all to do with the fact that I soooooo wanted to make up a card with this image! Nope! Not at all ......

and here she is ......

I coloured her hair and skin with my usual promarkers, and, for a change, I paper pieced her dress, shoes, hair bows and pressie bow! I haven't used this technique in a fair while now - not really sure why I haven't as I just LOVE cutting out and sticking :) The gorgeous papers are called 'Man About Town' and, yep, you guessed, it ..... I got them from my local craft shop!  They are made by a company called Wild Rose Studio

I had a weeny accident whilst doing up this card and spilt glitter on the pressie and her little hair accessories .... Oopsie!!! Silly me!!! ...... ;o)

I had so much fun making this card and enjoyed every minute! Have now got my beady eye on another Redonkulous Design ...... watch this space!!

Anyway, ladies, I'm off now to chill and watch a bit of X Factor! Don't usually get much time in front of the box so I'm gonna treat myself tonight!  Enjoy the rest of your day whatever you are up to and big thanks for popping by today!
