I am just going to cut straight to the chase and let you know that the theme of this month's blog hop might as well have been from Mars as I certainly found it to be a bit off the planet and pushed me out of my comfort zone. The theme was to make a card or project inspired by book covers/sleeves. You're probably best to check out the link directly as I am sure my understanding of it is, more than likely, clear as mud. But I was intrigued. So, after a bit of head scratching, the image that came screaming to mind was the ribbon stickers that are often seen adhered to book covers to state that a book is a prize winner of some description or a finalist in some book list or awards category. Fingers crossed you have some idea what I am rabbiting on about or I really must sound/read like a crafty loon. Ah well, it wouldn't be the first time and more than likely not the last. LOL I was also in need of a birthday card for a gorgeous man in my life that we all reckon is a bit of a prize favourite to say the least, so I set out on the challenge. Luckily, it didn't end up being as painful as I had imagined. *wink*
So, without further ado, may I please present to you my (rather obscure) entry for this month's PTI Blog Hop:
Many thanks for hopping by. It's always such a treat when you do. :-)
*All supplies used in making the card are Papertrey Ink's except for the papers.
