A card for Vince

I have now made cards for all the family. Liverpool fan Sue ( Ric's colleague) her daughter Zoe's 18th, Man U fan son Josh and now her husband Vince..I have it on authority that Vince is covered in tattoos, so used that idea to come up with his card. The backing paper is of a tattoo design for a tiger which I then transferred to 3D Card Builder 2 to repeat the image .. also I used a strip of blue faux snakeskin card ( to beef it up a bit) with peeloffs. The pic of Vince was given to me by his wife Sue ( an old school photo) and pyramaged using the same CD ( it looks a bit squiffy because of the angle I took it at . The sentiment was done using Wordart and cut with Nesties. The insert is another Tattoo design and the words are done using a font often used by Tattooists . Any comments would be appreciated.

Oh Disheartened me

I'm getting really disheartened with the response I am getting for my blog.. It seems many people come in and view but no-one leaves any comments so I can't really guage any reaction.

STOP PRESS !! I have just been informed by a buddy that they could not leave a comment as there was no facility to do so.. I have now been in and adjusted my settings as I have read this can sometinmes happen if a new layout is used.

I have now been told the comment facility is now working.

So if you happen to be passing this way please leave a comment even if it's just Hello LOL.. Thank you .
