Scrum time!

Another card for May got lots of birthdays in May another Charmed cards download I adore George!
Chalked the background again and gave him dirty knees and face well you can't play rugby without getting a little bit dirty can you!
coloured with promarkers and stamp some rugby balls in corner from another lovely stamp I have. I am entering this into this weeks dare you digi stamp and dotties world challenge.
I didn't read the challenge properly as it said something with wings lol, so I have had to add some wings onto his rugby top to make sure that I followed the challenge properly I found a picture off the internet and have wrote captain in the middle of the badge hope this qualifies!

What a catch!

I have made this card for my BIL's birthday in May I have used a download from Charmed cards I absolutely love these they are such fun!
I have followed the basic grey sketch this week also as you can see I have used some basic grey paper from archaic pad, brown and green bazzill, fish charm, I have chalked my background this time as I think it gives it a softer feel!
I have used promarkers and my stickles on the fish and glossy accents on waders and hats to give it a waterproof look!

Well I really enjoyed doing this card it all came together at the end! This is the first time that I have had a go at masking not bad for my first attempt I don't think. I loved the layout of this card which is off this weeks challenge over at Inspirational Card Sketches and I have also managed to cover another challenge theme over at Charizma cards which is little black dress>

dotties world

Here is my entry this week for Dotties World which I did find quite hard to complete as the theme is all handmade no papers or embellishments etc, but this is what I came up with using my little bits of scrap paper. The blossom on the tree is little bits of mulberry paper, I cut the tree myself out of some scrap.I cut the bottom off the wheelbarrow by accident so added some wire instead hope this counts. I am disappointed with the bees though think they look stupid but oh well I simply can't draw and thats it!
Hope you like I have done this card for my bil's birthday in May so I am way ahead of myself at the moment.

If anybody knows of any soldier stamps could they let me know I know there is a greeting farm set at dies to die for but not of any others I would like to design a stationary set so that he can write to people I appreciate any help.
