Good morning ,I can't believe how quick the last fortnight has gone.
The theme for this fortnights challenge at Crafty boots is SPORT
and was chosen by the lovely Zoe
I was challenged to say the least at this challenge. When I first
saw the theme I automatically thought of a male theme,
but then I seen this lovely image by the very talented Krista Smith
at Saturated canary shop.
I kept this card pretty simple as I didn't want to take anything from this image.
The image was coloured with copics and the stars are a Magnolia stamp which
I stamped with red,blue and veramark and then embossed.
The paper is forever friends -best of British paper pack.
The sentiment stamp is also by Magnoila, I also used some ribbon
and buttons.
Please pop by the fab Dt ladies blog to see what fabulous creations
they have come up with.
Before I go I would like to say a big thank you for your lovely comments
on my post earlier this week.
My children start at they're new school this morning and
they have been very excited over the weekend after the visit they had
on Friday.
I also hope that the comments I've left on your blogs made sense
as I haven't been able to think straight but love visiting your blog to see
your fab creations.
Thank you for stopping by my blog.
Bigs Hugs Emma xx
