This is my DT card for Susie's Sassy Challenge # 6 this week, the theme is one I picked myself and it is "A card for a boy with optional extra to add an animal". I chose this theme as my son Bobby will be 4 on Sunday 17th January, and he is obsessed with animals, lions being his favourites. The prize this time is a heart shaped chipboard mini album.
So pop on over and give it a go!
This card is also for:-
1. Creative Inspirations - challenge 24 - Distressing
2. Creative Card Crew - challenge 42 - Distressing
3. Sophisticats - challenge # 17 - Doth the north wind blow
4. Creative Inspirations Wednesday - challenge 43 - "New Year, New Products"
Creative Inspirations and Creative Card Crew both have the theme of distressing this week, and all the edges have been distressed with inks. While Sophsti-cats have a bit of a different theme this time, it is "Doth the north wind blow" and you can interpret it how ever you want. Well being a Northener when the wind blows it blows, and my image looks like the boy has got the wind in his hair whilst riding his bike. Creative Inspiration wednesday has asked for "A new year, new products" and this image is new, sent to me in a Rak from Jacqui, thanks love.
Now how are you all doing with your "New Years Resolutions"? I'm trying to stick to my craft one, which as some of you know I don't own a lot of stamps, and have in the past relied on what I have won in candies and prizes and Raks. Money is tight so don't get the chance to buy many but my resolution was to build on my stamps and to get a decent assortment. My favourites are Penny Black, Sarah Kay and Lili Of The Valley (designer ones). Well New Years Eve My hubby treated me to a retired Penny Black stamp called "Sharing Moments". I had the image sent to me by a lovely friend, and used it not long ago and really enjoyed using it. I really wanted it and saw it on the internet after hours of looking. And It arrived this morning, I got so excited, i was like a big kid. So here it is:-
I would like to finish this rather long post with an apology to all my blogging Buddies, I have been a bad blogger and been working on DT cards, my sons Birthday cards and sorting things for his birthday on Sunday. So I haven't been able to get round to everyones blogs, I'm so sorry but will be back on track very soon.
