Oops sorry I got mixed up with my days and forgot to schedule my posts this morning lol! Anyway Happy Easter Monday dear friends. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and ate lots of lovely yummy chocolate. I was quite reserved for me (only because I didn’t have very much) but the boys had lots of eggs and sweets as usual. I’m sure I can sneak a few bits off them when they’re not looking lol!
I’m here this morning to share my card for the stamp with fun challenge and this week we have a fantastic sketch to follow. I needed to make a card for an order so this sketch was perfect for me – here is my card:
and here is the sketch:
My auntie ordered this card to give to her great-grandson who’s football mad so I used this super cute image from Pollycraft called “skills” and coloured it with my promarkers and flex markers. The papers are a bit of mish mash! The striped yellow paper is SU from the ‘subtle paper patterns stack’ and the other pieces of paper/card are from my piles of off cuts! I found the footballs whilst searching on Google images and I’m really pleased with them. They will definitely come in handy for future football themed cards. The finished card is A5 in size.
The rest of the design team have created amazing samples as always so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
