Caught a bug and a Happy Birthday card!

hello there
well its Friday again - where are the weeks going to and its 1st March too!!
Today I have included a card I forgot I had done and a quickie card just for fun.
The first is the quickie card using an image from Digistamp Boutique - I love this image. its so funny!!
I simply printed it out - coloured in the bugs and added glossy accents to the jar - matted this onto blue cardstock and hey presto - one quickie card.

Everyone I have shown it to thinks its really funny! Here is a quick close up of the image itself.

Next is a card that I totally forgot I had done. This one is a commission card for a young rugby fan. His strip was specified black and white. Here I have used a LOTV image called Rugby Mad. I coloured it in with my copics and matted onto black cardstock then silver mirri board.

The wording is printed direct onto the linen card base using a font called Waterbrush.I added the grass and some blue sky using chalks.

Here is a close up of the image

I think he looks like he is scoring a try!! I liked the subtly of the chalks for the background against the linen cardstock - it gave a good effect.

thanks for dropping by again today. I hope you like today's 2 cards and I hope to see you tomorrow with another one!!

hugs until next time
