For the boys

      It's another Saturday and another challenge over at Send A Smile 4 Kids. The theme for this challenge is 'for the boys' and there are three very generous sponsors:-
   Squigglefly  (3 digis),  Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet ($10 gift certificate) and Fred She Said ($10 gift certificate).

   For this first card I used the image 'Pirate captain' from Squigglefly. I coloured it using Promarkers and lightly  dusted the edges with distress ink before matting it onto black core'dinations cardstock. The backing paper printed from a CD ROM sometime ago and laying around in my box of stash was also matted and layered onto black core'dinations cardstock and white card. After attaching the image to this I glued card candi onto the corners. Finally I fixed the best wishes sentiment cut from core'dinations cardstock using Tattered Lace dies onto the card.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Crafty Ribbons - nautical
   My Craft Creations - anything goes
   Papertake Weekly - anything goes
   Brown Sugar - anything goes
   Through the Purple Haze - anything goes
   Word Art Wednesday - anything goes
   Party Time Tuesdays - anything goes
   My next card was made using the soccer image from Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet.


   Again I have coloured the image using Promarkers and distressed the edges with distress ink. The papers used were printed using the Popcorn platinum CD ROM from Crafter's Companion and everything was matted onto green card. I chose black with white spots card candi as the nearest I had to football colours.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Passion For Promarkers - one for the boys
   Addicted to Stamps - lots of layers
   Inspiration Destination - anything goes
   Crafting From the Heart - anything goes
   Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper - anything goes
   A Gem of a Challenge - lots of layers
