Ball Games

Greetings to you all - thank you for visiting today.

I managed some studio time during the weekend, and although all did not go to plan I did manage to achieve some success, this being one of them.

This card came together very quickly for which I am thankful.  This image is one that was available at the web site Free Digital Stamps and was from an artist by the name of Sliekje

I coloured him with chalks with a wee bit of sparkling ink on the letters on his sweater.
The sentiment is from Kiwistamping and although I embossed it, the emobssing was absorbed by the hand made paper

The cream coloured panel was embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder - which 9 year old boy is not fascinated by spiders!!

This is just a quick post as I started the day with a migraine and should not be on the computer....

I am linking this to

Thanks for visiting, may your day be blessed.
