 I choose to using Gardening Ted for my card as he reminded me of my FIL whose birthday is next month sothis will make a perfect card for him. I have used promarkers to colour the image. The papers are from Basic Grey Pyrus collection. The sentiment is a papermania one which I have coloured with a promarker to match. the buttons are cut from a different sheet of the paper with my button ie which came as part of the doily set from Marianne Designs. I have tied a pice of string through them and then used foam pads to raise them off the page.

For my card I have used this cute little dragon from Stamping Dragon Designs, this one is called Jiggy's Ipod, I have coloured him with promarkers and used a goldgel pen for the musical nots around him. The papers I have used are a free set from Summertime Designs called Vintage Oreos, I have edged them all  with gold ink. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the musical notes buttons made from the cream button that comes with the paper set, I have then cropped a musical niote off the image and blown it up to the right size and put it on top of the button.

Couple of altered bits

 It was Shannon's best friends birthday this week and she didn't know what to get for her so I set about altering a notebook and a photo frame for her. The notebook was a £1 from Wilkinson. I prised the binding open and took the front cover off, covered it with some grey paper and then layered some stripy paper from Craftwork cards onto it, this has silver stripes on it but they don't show up in the photo. The I have printed this fab little image which was a freebie from here, I have coloured it with my promarkers and then mounted it onto a red frame which was cut with a nellie die into each of the dots on the frame I have put a clear gem. The ribbons tied to the binding are all from Crafty Ribbons.

 This frame again came from Wilkinson I bought them a while ago when they were reduced to 3 for 50p I have covered it with some paper I bought from Hobbycraft, not sure which brand it is as I had already used a piece and cut the name off the bottom, the white flowers are glittery. I added a rub on sentiment to the top corner. Then die cut a heart and some swirls from some MME paper and stuck them in the other corner adding some gems to the ends of the swirls. Along the bottom I put some lilac seam binding with a small bow in one corner and a flower in the other which is made from die cut scalloped circles, a gem brad in the centre of both finished it off.
