#34 Sketch

Hi to everyone,
I am sooo sorry for posting this late it's unforgiveable really but I have just lost time somewhere!!....don't quite know where!..... Anyways
Thanks to all who entered our challenge over the last fortnight....there were some fantastic creations it was hard to choose a winner!!! Now on to the new fortnights challege over at HERE COME THE BOYS.

So this my interpretation of this great little sketch the DT had to design. I always seem to steer away from using striped paper because I sometimes loose the design...but I think this time it worked ok! i actually got out my cuttlebug embossing folders for the stars piece! And of course I had to use a Lily of the Valley stamp coloured with Promarkers. The sentiment is a digi image from Sentiments 4 You

I hope you like and hop over to see what the rest of the DT have come up with!! while your there don't forget to have a go your might win a prize!

#33 Boys Toys

Morning Blogland!
Well we are into the school holidays now and I expect lots of families are out and about if not already away. So some of you are probably struggling to get a minute to make cards or even enter a blog challenge!! Well thankyou to all who managed to enter our Jungle challenge over at HERE COME THE BOYS last fortnight, some lovely cards!
On to this weeks new challenge we are asking for one of your wonderful creations for a Man/ Boy with a theme of Boys Toys. This could be men with power tools, golf clubs, cars, they love their toys or little boys and the contents of their toy boxes! loads of inspiration can be found from the DT girls over on the blog. Here is my card. 

 # 33 Boys Toys

I found this brilliant image on Mo's Digital Pencil " ELI" it reminds me of when my boys were little and we took them on holiday with lots of their toys...... but they just loved the cardboard boxes we got from shopping....they played in them for days!! How Cheap is that!!! lol. Anyway I used my promarkers to colour and a little Antique linen distress ink to soften edges while matting and layering with some kraft card and DP. I added 3 little card candy dots to complete. I hope you like and hop over to HERE COME THE BOYS and enter a card for your self. Good luck!
