ONE CARD, SIX Challenges!

Hi Folks, me again! I have a few posts 'scheduled' for this week as I'm away on my hols, but couldn't resist adding this 'extra' post too!! It's been an exciting day here, as Zoe, my beautiful and determined little 5 year old has mastered the art of riding her bike without the stabilisers!! It took her all of 3 minutes, compared to when my son learnt last year (aged 9yrs) who took at LEAST 3 DAYS!!! Will post pics when we get back :D

Anyway, onto all things 'cardy!' I have made a card today following a sketch as I feel the need to widen my skills to include a wider repertoire of styles and designs.


I used Papermania 'Yellow Tones' papers (although they are more orange than yellow!!) a Bugaboo stamp 'AKV BBQ' coloured with Promarkers, and the cardstock, brads and buttons are from my stash.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
Hope you like it, thanks for popping by. x

Well done to Zoe for riding without stabilisers, good going for 5 years old.

I love the image on your card and full marks on the colouring. I have started using sketches too as I found myself making the same type of card so good luck for the future.

Thanks you for joining us over at SCS Challenge.

That is a great use of a Bugaboo image. So glad I came and looked. I'm enjoying having a look at all these great male inspired cards - loads of wonderful ideas. Thanks for drawing my attention to your blog and letting me visit.
