Anyone for rugby?

This card is for Color dare 59:

also for the sketch on My grafico 39:

It's also for:

Created by hand: 'Are you wearing green?'
Humble pie (town scrapper): 'three buttons'
Another for Crazy 4 challenges 28: 'masculine cards'
Another for Crafty catz 23: 'something for the boys'
Cards for men 6: 'happy birthday'
Kaboodle 26: 'happy birthday'
Artful inkables (think ink Tuesday) 16: 'birthday'
Sunday stamper: 'bits and pieces' - the card is very much made up with various 'bits'

The background paper is K & Co Addison and the piece of paisley paper is a last piece from a sheet free with a magazine - pity it's all gone now, really liked that paper and have loved using it for masculine cards. The rugby stamp was coloured with copics (stamped on to a scrap from my box).

Pink Persimmon blog hop prize

Recently Pink Persimmon organised a blog hop and I won these stamps on Samantha's blog - you can see the prize winners here - and they have now arrived in the post - I look forward to using them - what a lucky girl I am!

What a thoughtful RAK

What a lovely surprise when we got back from Guy's hospital today - postie had brought me a big package with all these cards and papers from a dear crafting friend, with a note saying the had got a few left over aperture cards and can I use them for my fundraising?

Thank you so much, Paula, for such a thoughtful RAK - yes, I can indeed use them - I'll enjoy doing so.

Frosty the snowmen

The current challenge on ABC Christmas is 'F for frosty' with the optional extra of 'snow'. It's also another one for Gingersnap GC46 spicy supply challenge 'frosting'.

And on Bah! humbug challenge 9 is 'cool combos ...' - combine at least three of the themes from previous challenges - so I chose glitter, snowmen and trees.

It was very hard to get a photo because of the reflection on the background cards with the trees - it looks gold on here, but it actually has a very pale green sheen. - the shine is right for Squigglefly 40: 'let it shine' and is sparkly for Pollycraft 'sparkly things ...' The shine on the background paper and the glint on the white glitter card makes it look 'wet', so I'm also linking for Saturday spotlight 22: 'you're so slick'

I tore white glitter card for the snow and the snowmen are chipboard, which makes it good for Practical scrappers current challenge.

It's also an extra card for March's BF 25th club and also for Christmas cards all year round for March.
