Lachlan's Birthday Card.

Lachlan is my lovely soon to be 15 year old nephew (great actually). His Mum is my eldest niece and they live on the beautiful Isle of Lewis off the west coast of Scotland. Angela says she is the little one now as Lachlan is 6ft, Niall is 6ft 2 and Donald is 6ft4. Angela is quite tall herself and so is her husband.
I used :-
Image :- Beach Mikey a coloured digi image from Charmed Cards and Crafts.
Sentiment and card candy :- Craftwork Cards.
DP :- Wild Rose Studio - for men.
Colouring :- Distress Inks for edges and Promarker to colour card candy.
Nesties, small circle punch (to make buttons), string and ribbon.
I am entering some challenges :-
The Pink Elephant :- 3 layers, 2 die cuts and ribbon.
Sketch Saturday :- Sketch.
Crafty Creations :- Make your own buttons.
So that's the weekend over again already and tomorrow is a full day at work...yuk. So I'd best go and iron a couple of things I need for tomorrow.


  1. Wonderful card for a "grown up" boy! Great colors and I love the buttons! Thanks for joining in the Crafty Creations challenge!

  2. Hi Kat,
    This is a great card for a teenage boy. The colour scheme is fab and I love the image you have used.
    We've finally had some rain here and things are cooling down a little bit!
