I just had to make a card ..

I'm still feeling poorly and have been trying to take my mind off how I feel, which is why I've been blogging some of the cards I made before Christmas, but not actually making anything today. Well, I really wanted to make a card, so I found a sketch challenge that made me remember some Eastern Treasures stickers I had that would be just right for it, together with some Jolees stickers. So this is for Fetch a sketch 14:

In the end I got carried away and didn't just make one card, but I made four because they were so easy to put together. I've used paper offcuts on all of them, so I'm linking for Pixie's crafty snippets 1.

The background of this one is pieces of K & Co paper and offcuts from the Kanban grass card that I originally used for John's birthday card.

Offcuts of Kanban grass card for this one, sentiment strips that I've had for ages and brad footballs, which are metal, so this one is for the Hybrid Chick Card caravan 9: metal.

The golf background paper pieces were originally from PDA:

The green diamonds paper is Craft creations:
