Howzat !!!

Well, that's another busy week over, and before I knew it, the weekend has started.

My latest order from SU has arrived, and I've been dying to use the markers and stamps, but I haven't had time to craft until tonight. Here's a card I needed for my friends cricket mad husband.

The cricketer was coloured with my aqua painter and SU markers, and mounted on orange card. I used a bamboo stamp to make some stumps, and stamped the sentiment over them, before doing the same as the player panel. I embossed the blue card with a texture that looked like the bails off the stumps, and added the two panels with 3D pads. I drew white stitches on the orange cricket ball and finished it with a twine bow.

I will also be entering it into these challenges :

The sketch comes from Freshly Made Sketches

the colours from Hand Stamped Sentiments, (a new challenge I've found)

The Male Room has the theme of
and lastly, Stampin' Royalty have ANYTHING GOES

Supplies :
Card - Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, and base FMS
Stamps - Papermania, Inkadinkado, and Simply Sketched
Inks - Black Archival, Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey, and Lost Lagoon
Tools - Big Shot, Sizzix Textures, Aqua Painter, and Nestabilities
Extras - 3D Pads, White Gel Pen, and Bakers Twine

It was at Nathan's sports day on Tuesday, where he did very well in helping his house come second. 

Here he is with his rosette for 2nd in the sack race.

He was running so fast in the egg and spoon race that this is the only clear picture that I took.

It was also my SD, Dave's,  birthday on Wednesday, and Nathan and Sophie thought it would be funny to buy him a Darth Vader onesie. I think Halloween has come early, don't you??

That's all for now, so until the next time, have a good weekend (what's left of it!)
