…saying goodbye and thanks for listening



My card today features an image from Super Colouring that’s actually a tutorial on how to draw Elvis.


I’ve made this card for a colleague who is retiring who I affectionately refer to as the King of Intel.  Hence the Elvis reference, that and I can just see him dancing his way out of the office on his last day!

As it is for a guy I wanted to keep it fairly CAS so headed over to Freshly Made Sketches for some inspiration and I’ve followed their current sketch to make up my card.  I learned you can print with a laser printer on washi tape, although lining it up properly proved a bit of a challenge but I got it in the end.  With my sentiment I am entering my card in the current challenge at Craft Rocket.

Now in picking an Elvis image I just couldn’t go passed a blue suede shoe reference so I’ve coloured up Elvis in his black suit and those iconic shoes.  Love the way he turned out.  As I’ve got a song reference on my card I am also entering it over at Edna’s Yodelayeeeehoooo challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.

Awesome card, I would imagine it would test me to print on the washi tape. Thanks for playing along with us at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.
