JCB Birthday

I seem to be inundated with mens and boys cards at the moment and I find them sooooooooooooooo difficult as I know a lot of us crafters do.  Fortunately I was told that Harvey loves JCB's and being a 4 year old I had to give the card a bit of interest too, so I've made the bucket arm at the back move up and down by creating a joint using a brad and putting the number 4 on acetate so that it springs.

I've enterd this card into the following challenges:

  14. Hi there Hun - I am having problems replying to your comment at Docrafts...so thought I would pop over here instead. I colour with pro-markers and poly pencils...more with the pencils lately. I use bristol board to stamp on or print a stamp. This is smooth card and get be a little dear on some sites....I get mine from an art shop local to me. I blend the pencils with baby oil using paper stumps. I hope that helps you? Oh....and the bears...be warned they ARE addictive. Happy crafting, hope to see you again soon. Hugs Tammy xx
