Day 4: Preview April Release: Crafty Sentiments: Billy Cricketer and wicket

Hi there! Hope you are well and happy! We're having fun Easter holidays - but my pockets are about empty now - thank goodness I'm going to my mums twice this week!!! Sorry mum!!!!

Its day 4 of the new releases over at Crafty sentiments and todays image is called Billy Cricketer - and there's also a Wicket stamp too. Rememner to check out what the rest of the design team have done on the Inspirations page here. Here's my card:



I've used a sketch from Here Come the boys challenge blog. My image has been stamped and coloured with promarkers and then cut out. I've mounted Billy on a crafty cutter die (summer doily) that you can get from the Crafty sentiment shop here. Shaun is my husband - its his birthday in June and since he is a big cricket fan I thought it would be great to use this image to make his birthday card. I've put book pages behind the diecut - my husbands main love outside his work is reading - so I thought that was a good move. The other papers are from my stash - various sources!

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

HCTBherecometheboysblogchallenge: Sketch
AIartisticinspirationschallenges: AG
Cardmaniacardmaniachallenges: Punches and/or diecuts
Simon Says Stampsimonsaysstampschallenge: Happy Birthday
PFP:promarkerchallenge: cut it out


Thats all for today - hope you have a good one - we're off to my mums so I'm hoping it will stay dry so we can head out to Happy Mount Park in Morecambe. Later we've got a party to go to - its an 'enjoy - a - ball party that the girls really loved last time they went to one. Then I'm off to my aerobics class - so its going to be busy today - even for me!!!!

Thanks for dropping by and I hope to see you again soon!

Crafty Hugs
