Saturday Sketch and other challenges

Well this weekend  I am amazed to say that I actually managed to put a little time aside for some crafting.....mostly because I needed to make some thank you cards for my son who has just had his birthday.

I thought that this little skater boy from Pink Gem would be just perfect for a boy card, so I was temporarily diverted from my main task, so that I could put this card together and enter a few challenges at the same time.

Believe it or not, the papers are from a Do Crafts Christmas set, but I think, once you take away the matching 'snowflake' sheet, they work for any time of year.

The cute little boy is a polymer stamp but I am pretty sure you can also pick him up in digital format these days too. He's coloured in with Spectrum Noirs and I have done something a little different by cutting him out and mounting him on to the striped paper, which I hope works OK!

Well I think that's about all I have say on this one, other than entering it in to the following challenges.

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Make it Monday
Sketch Saturday
One Stop Craft - Anything Goes
Allsorts - Lets Get Cute   boys can be cute too right???
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
Gem of a Challange - Checks or Gingham

Well that's all for me today.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a good week ahead.
