How about a game of soccer!

Hi everyone,  I can't believe it's Monday already...the last day of our Civic Holiday long weekend! 
   We have only 2 days before our granddaughters come to stay with us for 10 days.  I can't wait!   Our schedule is full so I'm trying to get my DT cards done early without much success I must admit!  The weather has been far too nice lately to be indoors! 

Today starts a new challenge at
and the theme for #16 is "Heavy Metal"

The fabulous Kenny K is our sponsor this week
I'm sure you're all familiar with the wonderful work of Kenny K's Shop but what about the man (and woman) behind those wonderful creations. Take a look here to see their journey, 

I've used Anime Soccer digital stamp on my card today. 


DP - Karen Foster 6x6 Sports paper pad and the soccer ball was cut from a sheet in the collection
Striped paper Recollections
Coloured with Copics
Metal chain and clasp - Tim Holtz
K&Company Label Maker used to create the sentiment

I would like to enter the following challenges:
  1. Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge - Anything Goes
  2. Word Play Challenge - Birthdays
  3. Sister Act Challenge #18 - Anything Goes
  4. The Male Room Challenge #1 - Anything goes
  5. Hobby Cutz Challenge #12 - Card for a child
  6. Joanna Sheen Challenge - Boys will be boys

Thank you so much for stopping by and your comments are always appreciated.
Pat K xx
