Special Guest Card Maker this Valentines Day is my brother who made this card for my mum at his Special Needs Centre – no card I, (or anyone else could make) could be more precious or beautiful.

I surpassed myself today fiddle farting!
The houses are made using a small house punch (I think it came from Hobbycrafts) – but it wasn’t enough for me to just stick them onto a blank card, no, I had to doodle the details on each one using a very fine liner pen and then colour them in very roughly with pale colours from my Whispers pen set!
I also made the back panel using two strips of textured paper.
To finish the card I added a few clouds in the sky using a white gel pen and a fence, using a black fine liner pen.
I had a quick whizz around yesterday but all I got was three packs of A4 envelopes (10 in a pack for £1) from a stall on Penkridge Market (Staffs) for my mate Lisa.
I wouldn’t know where to start making a card that big!
