Allsorts challenge- Red card.

Hello peeps!!
A bit of a late one from me today as I have been having fun with the boys today!!! They have been skateboarding!! Ryan bought Mo one of his old decks and some wheels and they have been practising all afternoon, Mo's first time on a big skateboard but he loved it!!!
I made him wear his bike helmet!!!

And so onto my red creation for the Allsorts challenge blogs Red challenge!!
I had an anniversary card order to fill and felt like getting my funk on with my Funky Hand papers!! this card using papers from Dreams come True ( for the gorguss bottom bit)  and Craft the year away ( for the cool splattery looking top bit).

I cut a heart on my cricut, stamped my magnolia love stamp on it with fired brick distress ink and then distress inked it a bit more with tattered rose and fired brick. Then I covered it with some really pretty vellum and added a couple of SU tiny tags to it. I used the flourish stamp and made a sentiment on my pooter for the other!!

The bit of vellum across the centre is actually really pretty IRL as it is crimpled and shiny and matt, (same on the heart too but doesn't show up in the piccy ,grrrrrrrr.) and I just had to have a bit more of a play with my new pearl maker pen thing, I love it!!!

We have the most mahoosive black cloud over our village tonight so I am thinking big rain soon, yey!! no plant watering needed tonight!!!!

Thank you for popping in on me, I do love a visit!!!!

hugs Lou xxxx
