For a Harry Potter fan!

Evening, all! Has anyone else had problems recently with Mr Blogger? When he finally returned from his hols I had to sign in again, which is always embarrassing because I can never remember my password! Oops!

My daughter asked me to make a card for a friend who is a Raving Harry Potter maniac. Yes, she dressed up in a costume (this is called 'cosplay' I'm told) and queued for hours to get the last book at midnight on the day it was published. She adores Draco, so when I found a set of images at Bugaboo that resemble some of the characters I had to use one!

Thanks to Blogger being on Spring Break, I couldn't find a new sketch so I adapted an old Sketch Saturday sketch. Papers are: Funky Hand (striped) K and Co (middle) and Bo Bunny 'Blast Off!' for the triangles. The sentiment is Lili of the Valley stamped in silver Versacolor, and the stars are holographic card, and I used a Woodware punch. All the papers have been distressed in Bundled Sage and then stickled.

No flowers, you'll notice! No ribbon! That's really because the young man's scowl hinted that he wouldn't like them one bit!

Right, time to wash up and make a cuppa and tidy this craftroom before 'Have I Got News For You' at 9 o'clock.

Have a good evening!

luv, Mags x
