crafty evening part 1

Hiya girlies how are we all on this Bank Holiday weekend? We don't get this one at the school so life is just the same for us this week lol I had a lovely evening at the craft table last night, I did two DT cards for tomorrow's sketch at JCBC first time in ages I have managed both a Christmas and a birthday card :o)

I also managed a couple of other cards for some challenges (YAY!)

First up this card is for the challenges at: Sketch and Stash (new stash is the SU buttons) Penny Black want "buttons galore" and the Cute Card Thursday theme is "A sporting chance"

Image: Penny Black coloured with Promarkers
Papers: K&Co (I think lol)
Ribbon: SU
Buttons: SU
Brad and chipboard pieces: K&Co
Also used: Fiskars border punch
The image originally had a balloon but I wanted it to be more masculine to go with the paper so used a footy brad from the set with the looks like the wee hedgie is jumping up to catch the ball :o) I think this will be Ian's father's day card from Lily seeing as it's not far off now!
