Anyway you lovely peeps, I have finished the first one! Oh and by the way, thank you so much for stopping by and checking me out. I have almost 100 followers now and I am sooooooo chuffed - I would do another happy dance but Graham shouted at me last time (you know when that was Di) because he thought the floor would give way!
I looked through my stamps and digis but couldn't find one suitable so I checked out th'internet and found this one on some colouring pages. I liked the fact that it looked steampunky so I coloured it with my Promarkers in greys and browns. I used two little splashes of red, one on the screwdriver and the other one on the gauge just below the steam. I wanted to use some coggy things, but I know that this one is going to be posted so I needed to keep it as light as possible. I found some Eco-Friendly die cut cogs and painted them with Mulch Eco-Friendly Acrylic paint plus a dab of Black E-F paint. Then I took a La Blanche script stamp and stamped on them in Alabaster Colorbox Chalk Ink. Must admit I am totally chuffed with the result. I used the same stamp on the ticket to add a little bit of interest. I wanted to put a sentiment on the front but it need to fit in so I printed off a dictionary page (found on th'internet) and then typed the HAPPY BIRTHDAY over the printed page. I covered a piece of the Eco-Friendly die cut board with the printed sentiment - again I am quite chuffed with this. I have even decorated the inside 'cos it is speshul!!!!! LOL.

Thank you so much if you have managed to leave me a comment, albeit a cheeky one! I do love reading your warbles soooo much.
Anyway I will be off now and leave you to whatever floats your boat - I guess, if you are an early bird, I will still be in me pit however Deana (our lovely hairdresser) is coming to spruce us up this afternoon, so I can't fester in here for too long! Shucks!
