Happy birthday

Hello all, hope you are all well and warm.  We had snow overnight but it's all gone, still blooming freezing though! 
A wee card for my box today.  It's for a male birthday,  a cheeky one. ;-)
The image is by Ladybugcrafts Ink, one of the Jack images. I coloured the image with Copics and Promarkers.  I also put some Glosy Accents on his tongue. 
The papers were freebie We R Memory Keepers from a magazine, I've forgotten which one.
The sentiment is from ages ago, think they are Daisy and Dandelion.
As you can see from the side banner  Ladybugcrafts Ink have a new digi release on Tuesday 26th. Please come to the site and have a look. The images are very cute. 

Thanks for all your comments, really appreciate each and every one of them. They helped a lot. Will be reading them again in April for next round of hospital appointments. 
Stay warm,



  1. LOL! I love this card!! It is perfect for my sense of humor!

  2. Oh! he is cheeky hee hee, love your layout and papers. xx Flora

  3. He he - this is so much fun Alison!

    Hope you have a fab weekend planned! :)

  4. Hi Alison
    He really is a cheeky chappie and I am sure there are a lot of males out there that this would be just perfect for them. I love the papers you have used with him and the colouring is fantastic, interesting that you used Copics and Promarkers. Do you favour one over the other or do you find them much the same?
    Sorry to hear you are having to attend hospital I do hope you are ok.

  5. He looks a real Tike doesn't he, love him and fab male image. Love your colouring. Perishing up here too, though no snow.
    Just noticed the above comment from Ria asking about Copic/Promarkers, I've wondered the same, I use Promarkers and also have Spectrum Noir but I'm not all the keen on them, find them too wet. Anyway have a good weekend, kate x

  6. Oh I had to smile at this card. That little guy is just too much. Great coloring too...he's very realistic looking. Liked the touch of using a border trim to match your mat as well. Good idea (may borrow that one! I am layout challenged!) Yes, I was able to keep my kindle on until 11pm, also had tv. Had taken a card book along to browse, but only had a small lamp, so not great lighting once lights were out. Thanks for asking. Now just wait for - sigh - yet another result. Gets tiresome. Thanks for sharing such a cute card. The calendar was another nice touch on a birthday card. Hope you've gotten a bit of rest too. Hugs

  7. This is fabulous Alison. I love that fun image and the papers and layout are brilliant.
    Take care
    Sue xx

  8. Great card Alison. What type of card/paper are you printing out your digi's on. Every time I print out a digi (and I have used different papers) the black outline ink always runs into the colours. Great colouring.

  9. This is gorgeous Alison so cheeky LOL you have coloured it really well huggles hun Sue J xxx

  10. Ha ha, what a great image. We love your card.

  12. Gorgeous card, I love cheeky Jack!! looking forward to tuesday! x

  13. Morning Alison, great card, love cheeky Jack. It's good to see you blogging again, I hope the April appointments are as a taxi driver and companion rather than for yourself.x

  14. He's so funny and cute Alison. I love your choice of matching papers and the layout!

    I wish our snow would melt, but the best thing about spring is that the weather gets better and better every week!
